A philosopher in this post-ethics age sat down to eat breakfast in Copenhagen, laptop open, and couldn't help overhearing the private conversation of some climate "skeptics," who presumably feel no outrage about intrusion on private conversations. He took notes: "The private breakfast conversation was troubling, offering clear and indisputable evidence of attempts by the highest members of the climate denier community to manipulate the truth, shout down debate, silence dissent, hide data, initiate a political coup, deliberately conflate theoretical terms, isolate and mock the weak, cover up known facts, obfuscate good science, and whimper." It goes all the way up to Christopher Walter Monckton, 3rd Viscount Monckton of Brenchley.
