Christopher Horner, a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute [no, no! He works at the Competitive Enterprise Institute — very different thing. Jon Stewart got it wrong too. My apologies. See comments.], has a book out called The Politically Incorrect Guide to Global Warming and Environmentalism. He appeared on The Daily Show last night. He seems like a genial guy, and he did OK as a guest, but were these really his leading talking points?

Did you know in the ’70s scientists thought the climate was cooling? And some guy in the German Green Party once said something crazy? And lefties hate progress? It’s true! Clearly the whole thing is a hoax.

If this is the best the skeptics can do, we really have turned a corner.
