Environmental Group President Threatens To Destroy Career of Global Warming Skeptic
Here’s something you don’t see every day: a president of a major environmental group sending an e-mail message to a colleague threatening to ruin that person’s career over disagreements regarding anthropogenic global warming.
Yet, as published at National Review Online’s “The Corner” on Friday, that’s exactly what happened just days after a Competitive Enterprise Institute senior fellow wrote an article for the American Spectator which spoke against proposed legislation to mandate carbon dioxide emissions reductions.
According to National Review’s Iain Murphy, the author, Dr. Marlo Lewis, received the following e-mail message this morning (one character edited by Murphy for vulgarity):
You are so full of cr*p.
You have been proven wrong. The entire world has proven you wrong. You are the last guy on Earth to get it. Take this warning from me, Marlo. It is my intention to destroy your career as a liar. If you produce one more editorial against climate change, I will launch a campaign against your professional integrity. I will call you a liar and charlatan to the Harvard community of which you and I are members. I will call you out as a man who has been bought by Corporate America. Go ahead, guy. Take me on.

I guess that’s one way to end the debate.
