Russell Cook notes that our old friend, Senator Timothy Wirth. the man who stagecrafted Dr. James Hansen’s 1988 pitch on global warming to Congress, is now trying to invite Hillary’s campaign manager to dinner with serial skeptic hater Naomi Oreskes.

Dear Mary and John:
Wren and I hope that you will join us for a small dinner with Professor Naomi Oreskes, Thursday, June 12, 7:30pm at The Metropolitan Club.
A prolific author and distinguished scholar, Naomi recently moved to Harvard, where she is Professor of the History of Science, with a joint appointment in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences.
Naomi won many prizes for her earlier work while at the University of California at San Diego, including “Merchants of Doubt”; she has most recently been working on the parallels between the tobacco industry and the deniers of climate change.
Earlier on June 12, the United Nations Foundation is hosting a book party for her new book “The Collapse of Western Civilization: a View from the Future” (5-6:30pm, 1750 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, 12th floor).
Wren and I hope that you will be able to attend the book event, and then can join us for a small and lively discussion. We look forward to seeing you on June 12.
Timothy E. Wirth
No word on whether or not Podesta accepted. Russell Cook writes:
The UN Foundation, the place where Al Gore’s former longtime spokesperson Kalee Kreider – a woman having no more than a BA degree in History – has ended up working at, described as “the Science and Policy Advisor at the United Nations Foundation.” Ms Kreider is among the people I term “The epicenter for the ‘Industry-corrupted Skeptic Climate Scientists’ Accusation.”
As I detail in the following blog post, Ms Kreider is seen in 2014 as a person relaying info out of the UN Secretary-General’s office to John Podesta, who was at the time the Counselor to the President, specializing in “overseeing climate change and energy policy.”
