Turning Blind Eye Costing More

Utilities Pay Scientist Ally on Warming - New York Times:
WASHINGTON, July 27 — Coal-burning utilities are contributing money to one of the few remaining climate scientists openly critical of the broad consensus that fossil fuel emissions are intensifying global warming.

The critic, Patrick J. Michaels, is a professor of environmental sciences at the University of Virginia, a senior fellow at the libertarian Cato Institute and Virginia’s state climatologist.

Dr. Michaels told Western business leaders last year that he was running out of money for his analyses of other scientists’ global warming research. So a Colorado utility organized a collection campaign for him last week and has raised at least $150,000 in donations and pledges.
How will Fox News keep the debate fair and balanced when the last scientist to be bought can't be found? Maybe they can use animation to fill in the dissenting seat.
