I am writing to ask you to send notes of congratulations to those persons in this list who you know or most admire... You might also consider interviewing one or more of them for articles, op-eds, feature stories, blog posts, radio interviews, and so on... 
If we hold another ICCC after this one… that could be the occasion for more awards. Or better yet, some other think tank can get off its lazy butt step up and recognize other heroes of the climate wars. The global warming “skeptics” movement has emerged over the years as a real force for good in the world,...
Joe
Instead of naming an award after the 96 year old physicist badgered to death in the runup to the first conference-- Heartland Fellow Fred Singer has never produced the manuscript of the late Frederick Seitz's supposed endorsement of Heartland's egregious NIPCC report, and the cataract-stricken nonagenarian's faithful secretary denies he ever drafted one-- why doesn't Bast pick on someone his own age, and celebrate  the careers of Heartland's own 'Senior Fellows' & fans?

STIRRING THE CAULDRON

 Can Witch-Hunter General Watts rout the Satanic forces seeking to defile America's vital bodily fluids 
with orange juice and 
Wheaties?

Posted on June 18, 2014 by Anthony Watts          190,019,366 views

After a 239 post exchange on Facebook, an alarmist gets the last say.

Mark Ruscoe, of Asheville NC writes.
Anthony, 
… one of my antagonists proved unappreciative of my arguments or my sources: 
“… You and your fellow deniers are wrong, and you will be on the wrong side of history. In 50 years you will be scattered with the witch-burners, the white supremacists, the birthers and the creationists who illustrate the limits of the human mind...I wish you could be around to see it, if  for no other reason than to hear you bray frantically that Anthony Watts is still right.”
To James in Perth this suggests : 
Climate alarmism is a mental illness...  
But Bob Johnson begs to differ :
Climate alarmism is not a mental illness, it’s simply human nature. The term for it is cognitive dissonance and... Cognitive dissonance is why we’re mired in a health epidemic where...absolute poisons like whole wheat, vegetable oils and fruit juice are recommended as cornerstones of our diet."
