The Daily Caller has a particularly pitiful story on Harvard professor Naomi Oreskes, co-author of Merchants of Doubt, the book that explores how fossil fuel companies created climate denial by using the tobacco industry's playbook (and even some of the same spokespeople.)
Professor Oreskes has a new book out, discussed in Friday's Guardian, which is written from the perspective of historians in the year 2393 who are trying to figure out why humanity failed to combat climate change.
Of all the possible denier criticisms to leverage, the Daily Caller chose to focus on the unrelated fact that Professor Oreskes occasionally travels via airplane. They link to her CV, inexplicably claiming that it "outlines with a scholar's specificity her penchant to fly around the globe routinely."
They conclude the story by pointing out that since 2008, she's been to at least SIX other countries! Most cringe-worthy, however, are the comments, many of which focus more on her looks than even her flying. Clearly the Daily Caller and its audience are concerned with what really matters.
