Leave it to the LA Times to have a headline, “Climate scientists plan campaign against global warming skeptics” OK, so some climate scientists are going to campaign against AGW. Nothing new here. The story begins:
The American Geophysical Union plans to announce that 700 researchers have agreed to speak out on the issue.
So wouldn’t any reasonable person come to the conclusion that these folks are going to support AGW and set these Congressmen right? But here is the second sentence:
Other scientists plan a pushback against congressional conservatives who have vowed to kill regulations on greenhouse gas emissions.
So are the 700 scientists on the conservative side or the AGW Liberal side? The reader is left to wonder. Well wonder no more. The AGU scientists are pro-AGW. Or are they. Contrary to the poor literary style, the LA Times means to say the AGU is doing what they, sort of, are saying they will do. But….

“In contrast to what has been reported in the LA Times and elsewhere, there is no campaign by AGU against climate skeptics or congressional conservatives,” says Christine McEntee, Executive Director and CEO of the American Geophysical Union. “AGU will continue to provide accurate scientific information on Earth and space topics to inform the general public and to support sound public policy development.”
The AGU is planning to launch a program to inform the public about a broad range of scientific information. You can find more Here
