Big Insider PR Firms Say They Will Shun Climate “Deniers”

UK’s The Guardian spins PR story to breathe new life into the failing “climate change” intimidation campaign.

“World's top PR companies rule out working with climate deniers,” proclaimed the headline of a story on August 4 in The Guardian, Britian’s most influential leftist daily paper, and a fanatical fount of global warming alarmism. The subtitle of the piece by reporters Suzanne Goldenberg and Nishad Karim declared: “Ten firms say they will not represent clients that deny man-made climate change or seek to block emisson-reducing [sic] regulations.”

“Some of the world’s top PR companies have for the first time publicly ruled out working with climate change deniers,” reported The Guardian, “marking a fundamental shift in the multi-billion dollar industry that has grown up around the issue of global warming.”

“Public relations firms have played a critical role over the years in framing the debate on climate change and its solutions,” note Goldenberg and Karim, and now “a number of the top 25 global PR firms have told The Guardian they will not represent clients who deny man-made climate change, or take campaigns seeking to block regulations limiting carbon pollution. Companies include WPP, Waggener Edstrom (WE) Worldwide, Weber Shandwick, Text100, and Finn Partners.”

“We would not knowingly partner with a client who denies the existence of climate change,” Rhian Rotz, spokesman for WE, told The Guardian.

Of course, The Guardian and Rhian Rotz would be hard pressed to name a single skeptic “who denies the existence of climate change.” Our planet’s climate is dynamic, always changing, and all of the skeptical scientists this reporter has ever read or interviewed acknowledge that fact. The “denier” tag is one of the most disingenuous and vicious smears employed by a frantic climate alarmist lobby that is desperately resorting to name-calling to draw attention away from its own mounting scandals and bogus science.

Among the numerous renowned scientists who fall into the “skeptic” camp (some prefer to be called climate “realists”), there are many disagreements over the degree to which mankind’s production of carbon dioxide and other emissions may be affecting the Earth’s climate. While many skeptical scientists acknowledge that man-made CO2 may have “significant” impact on climate, overall they seem to be in agreement that the weight of the evidence indicates that global temperature variations over the past several decades have not exceeded natural variability and that the climate alarmists are greatly exaggerating temperature changes, man’s contributions to these changes, and the supposed calamities these temperature variations will bring. The skeptics further challenge the discredited computer models used by the alarmists to produce their apocalyptic (and invariably false) predictions and reject the unscientific claims that there is a “climate crisis” demanding a radical “transformation” of the entire global political and economic system.
