Get Paid To Say Dumb Stuff About Global Warming on Video


How much does climate denial cost? Apparently it only takes $500. Steve Milloy, the former tobacco lobbyist turned Fox News columnist and global warming denier extraordinaire, is offering that much money to anyone who will make a scene next week at a State Department screening of a new documentary about how climate change is affecting the Himalayan glaciers.

The film is a coproduction of the United Nations Development Program, Arrowhead Films, and Discovery Channel Asia, and will be followed by a panel discussion. Yesterday, Milloy asked the readers of his “Junk Science” blog to show up at the event and film themselves heckling panelists, promising $500 to anyone who does.

Climate-change deniers have been trying for years to argue that the glaciers aren’t really melting, or that if they are it’s not that big of a deal, and Milloy’s certainly a known quantity in the denial world. Let’s see if anyone takes him up on his offer.
