The Media Finally Discovers CCS

Okay, so it's not a major daily, but it is the newspaper of Maryland's seat of government, The Capital of Annapolis. Pretty fair treatment of the controversy behind the Center for Climate Strategies, which I (and others) have written about ad nauseum on opinion pages, but until now did not get a sniff from reporters. Pamela Wood does a pretty good job summarizing the conflict between the global warming panic-stricken who love CCS's work and those of us who have exposed the group for the alarmist advocates that they are:

The disagreement started with frustration over the commission's interim recommendations in November, to slash carbon-dioxide emissions in the state and promote energy efficiency.

Then, global-warming critics were galled to find out the center is controlled by another group that makes no bones about its environmental advocacy.

Mark Newgent of Baltimore has written extensively about the center and the climate commission on the Red Maryland blog as well as on his personal blog. He said Maryland is getting a raw deal by "essentially farming out its policy discussions to an advocacy group."
