"A colleague of mine thought it'd be worth sharing what James Woolsey is up to, and I agree. In two weeks, he's moderating a "Climate Change Panel Discussion," on which 3 of 5 invited panelists deny the basic argument that climate change is mostly driven by human activity and will have extremely adverse affects.

I'm especially disappointed that the World Affairs Council is supporting this hackery."
