Kevin Lynch has interesting pair of posts investigating Pat Michaels. First, it looks like Michaels isn’t really Virginia’s State Climatologist. Second, Michaels has serious conflict of interest, not just because the State of Virginia and fossil fuel companies have conflicting interests, but because he’s been misusing State Climate Advisories to attack the science of climate change.

Thanks to David Sewell for the links.

    Micheals sure is in the pile with this leaked coal memo. What are the chances he’ll just slink back into his hole never to be seen again?

    Nil, as long as the Heritage Victory Tours continue, replete with their yummy buffets.
