Couple in snowWill you be Fox’s Valentine?Photo: Adrian ScottowFox News “science” reporter Gene Koprowski doesn’t care if you believe in science. He just wants you to be willing to say it’s dumb. Global warming causing cooling? Climate change changing the climate? What is this, CRAZY TOWN? Would you say that on the record, please? And step on it, he’s on a deadline.

To that effect, Koprowski has put out the world’s saddest personal ad, seeking out the science-averse or hypocritical for long walks on the ever-shrinking, hurricane-pounded beach:

1. ENVIRONMENT/TODAY: Global Warming Causing More Snow? Come Again? —
Deadline: Feb 01, 2011 11:00 PM EST

Former Vice President Al Gore told Bill O’Reilly that: “A rise in global temperature can create all sorts of havoc, ranging from hotter dry spells to colder winters, along with increasingly violent storms, flooding, forest fires and loss of endangered species.” We need comments from someone who can point out the ridiculousness of his argument, even if you accept the somewhat-implausible argument. I’ve been assigned this story just now by Fox News in New York for the science and technology desk. I’m looking for comments. Please send comments via e-mail. Please send your name, title and company you represent. Please send comments by 10 p.m. CST. Contact: Gene Koprowski, [redacted]
