SkS Weekly Digest #28

SkS Highlights

SkS readers were treated to two Twilight Zone experiences this past week. In both epsiodes, a prominent climate "skeptic" debated climate science with himself. The first episode, The Monckton Maneuver, is a video produced and narrated by Peter Hadfield. The second, Plimer vs Plimer: a one man contradiction is a narrative written by John Cook. Monckton and Plimer prove beyond a reasonable doubt that US politicians do not have exclusive rights to "flip flopping."
