"When Grownups Bully Climate Scientists"

"We spend lots of time these days focused on children bullied by their classmates at school, at play, and online. ... Bullying is the nicest word to use in describing the recent spate of irresponsible attacks on climate scientists."

"Just this week, University of Oregon professor Kari Norgaard, author of Living in Denial: Climate Change, Emotions, and Everyday Life, returned from a conference in London only to find that she was being pilloried on-air by Rush Limbaugh, who wondered, referring to climate scientists, why “nobody stands up and says they’re nuts.” At Rush’s urging, hundreds of people flooded her with hateful, vitriolic emails."
