Climate skeptics, meet this week. Will they be trashing Greasy Rider again?

The annual Heartland Institute conference on climate change is being held this week. It's a chance for the world's dwindling number of global warming skeptics to get together and grab a few seconds of media coverage. As always, the event is noticeably lacking in actual climate scientists.

Grist magazine gives a rundown on the top-billed attendees, and how none of them have a background in climatology.

Last year, one of the event's big speakers was Kenneth P. Green, the guy who reviewed Greasy Rider for the New York Post in the fall. Surprisingly enough, he wasn't a big fan of certain elements of the book.
