NTZ reader Edward has brought this here to my attention. Journalist James Delingpole, a tireless sceptic of CAGW, has been awarded the Bastiat Prize for Online Journalism at an awards ceremony in New York last night.
Congratulations James! Keep up the good work.
James indeed has become one of the most prolific and effective journalists when it gets down to reporting on the faults and shenanigans of AGW science.
The Telegraph writes:
James’s posts on the Climategate scandal made a huge international impact on the debate over global warming, raising serious questions about the scientific basis of some of the more extravagant predictions of environmental apocalypse.
He has made an immense contribution in forcing the science back to the realms of sanity. The Telegraph:
After James’s posts appeared, generating in some cases over a million page views each, the scientific consensus over climate suddenly appeared a good deal more fragile than it had previously, as even some supporters of the global warming thesis concede. (Others, in contrast, splutter with rage at the mere mention of Delingpole’s name).
