    Mitchell Anderson reports.

    The person listed as the author of the [“suppressed” EPA] report, Alan Carlin, is not a scientist all, but an economist who works for National Center for Environmental Economics. But it seems Carlin had some considerable help.

    Several years ago Ken Gregory of the Astroturf group Friends of Science compiled an eye-glazing compendium of the mish mash of pseudo science that passes for the climate skeptic brain trust. According to the good folks at Real Climate, it seems the Carlin report simply imports sections of this verbatim. […]

    […] It seems that a November 19th op-ed piece on [Patrick] Michael’s website entitled “Why the EPA should find against Endangerment” has exactly the same wording and exactly the same graphs [as page 79 of Carlin’s PDF]. In fact the entire section 3 of Carlin’s report seems to be a very thin re-write of the anti-EPA piece from last November.
