    I have no reason to believe he is not a reliable source.

    This argument about who is funding scientists is ridiculous, scientists are supposed to be unbiased and search for the truth who ever employs them, and anyway there is way more money for AGW research.

    Why would working for the Heartland Institute affect your science any more than your pay and ability to receive grants being directly affected by the level of AGW concern?

    Considering the fact that Easterbrook's 2008 cooling predictions have failed to materialize coupled with the fact that the entire faculty of his former employer disagrees with him, I'd say that Easterbrook is not very reliable at all.

    Science is science and science requires funding. Disinformation campaign is not science and Easterbrook is not a scientists but a disinformation campaigner. In other a corporate shill paid to say what the Koch brothers want him to say.

    Not according to Gringo, who is generally correct.

    It was "opened" already, Mike. Again, for the umpteenth time, you have copied a copy.

    Here is the original.

    https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20150...

    I reposted a variant of it BECAUSE I WAS BLOCKED from answering it directly.

    Unless you are also blocked from the original question, you can say whatever you want to on that original page.

    So, of course, can the poster of that "original" question.
