Scant attention? Well, other than The Drudge Report, one of the most heavily visited news sites in the world. As for other like-minded blogs? There are millions of blogs nowadays so if this content made it to even a small percentage of them, it no doubt still squashed the Strib's readership, now dwindling, by some magnitude.
In time, a decade or two, the outrageous scam will be obvious. As the temperature rises, polar ice cap melting, coastal flooding and super storm pattern all fail to occur as predicted everyone will come to realize we have been duped. The sky is not falling. And, natural cycles and drifts in climate are as much if not more responsible for any climate changes underway. I strongly believe that the next twenty years are equally as likely to see a cooling trend as they are to see a warming trend.
