And yet you can't follow the money or the science you leftist dullards seem to worship. What does your bigoted and flawed comment have to do with the subject at hand?

The ignorant opinions of a rightwingnut science denier amount to meaningless noise. You wouldn't recognize actual science if it bit your ass, moron.

Your link is another joke, moron. "legalinsurrection.com" is another rightwingnut source of misinformation and lies. 

 

In review, Legal Insurrection is a conservative blog that frequently uses loaded language in articles and headlines such as this: Pitting Americans against each other in the “Climate Change” debate. This story uses proper sources such as The Hill and New York Times as well as the factually mixed Fox News. Other articles are not favorable toward the left such as this: Croissant-gate: Ocasio-Cortez outraged by inhumane cost of capitalist croissants at LaGuardia Airport. This article is primarily sourced to Twitter posts. The Legal Insurrection frequently reports on climate change, though they do not outright deny human-influenced climate change, they do sow doubt and tend to favor free-market solutions. In general, all stories favor the right and denigrate the left. 

 

The article you cite was written by Hayden Ludwig (who) is a Senior Investigative Researcher at Capital Research Center. He is also a columnist at the Washington Free Beacon.

 

The Capital Research Center - CRC has received large donations from pro-fossil fuel groups like Exxon and the Koch Family Foundations through its Claude R. Lambe Charitable Foundation.[37] In November 2010, CRC published a report criticizing the Sierra Club for its work in transitioning the US away from coal plants, portraying it as an attack on "American prosperity."[38] Documents released as a part of the settlement by tobacco companies with U.S. state governments revealed the close relationship between CRC and Philip Morris. See Capital Research Center and the tobacco industry for more details. The very right wing Bradley Foundation is helping fund CRC. From an expose[33]  - the Bradley Foundation funds the “Capital Research Center” to work with Berman and Company on projects. The Center is not part of the Berman and Company operation, but is run by a former Berman employee, Scott Walter. It received $2.5 million from Bradley between 1998-2015. CRC paid Berman and Company $132,700 in 2016 for "Web, Communications, and Social Media," according to its annual IRS filing.[39]

 

Berman and Company, Washington, DC public affairs firm owned by lobbyist Rick Berman, represents the tobacco industry, the fossil fuel companies, and others. On October 30, 2014, the New York Times broke the news that a speech Rick Berman had given to oil and gas executives at an event sponsored by the Western Energy Alliance in Colorado Springs in June 2014.  The speech had been secretly recorded. Berman told those gathered that “if the oil and gas industry wants to prevent its opponents from slowing its efforts to drill in more places, it must be prepared to employ tactics like digging up embarrassing tidbits about environmentalists and liberal celebrities.” Attendees included representatives from oil and gas companies such as Anadarko Petroleum, Devon Energy, ExxonMobil, Halliburton Company, and Noble Energy. Berman told the executives they “must be willing to exploit emotions like fear, greed and anger and turn them against the environmental groups. And major corporations secretly financing such a campaign should not worry about offending the general public because ‘you can either win ugly or lose pretty,’ he said. ‘Think of this as an endless war,’ Mr. Berman told the crowd… ‘And you have to budget for it,'” according to the TimesBloomberg also reported on the leaked audio, noting that “Berman offered companies a way to anonymously target their environmental foes — at a cost of as much as $3 million.” Then in early 2015, The Guardian reported one of Berman’s front groups, the Employment Policies Institute, funded a series of reports by the Beacon Hill Institute attacking President Obama’s Clean Power Plan. The reports have been released in partnership with industry-funded state think tanks with ties to the Koch brothers and other fossil fuel special interest groups, and pitched to advance the agenda of model legislation from the fossil fuel-funded American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC).

 

"Follow the money", indeed! You poor pea-brained retard.

So what in your article makes Legal Insurrection a bad source? The Guardian is one sketchy POS leftist hack rag. Favoring the right and denigrating you leftard idiots is a good thing, too bad you are unable to learn from it.

You forgot to call him a Son of a Bitch. You're slipping up, Little Freddie. Your name calling is the only thing that gave your posts any impact. Because your facts suck so bad.

You didn’t expect @calguy or @TruePatriot to actually counter the article, did you? 
 

Ad hominem logical fallacy is all they got.
