Debate tactics in the new millenium

Now that it's clear Bush's political appointees have been systematically suppressing any mention of the possibility of global warming, now we hear that there are at least a few scientists who are critical of man's role in this. One is a professor of weather studies at Oregon State (I heard about him in last night's tv news). A columnist in today's Oregonian mentioned two more: Richard S. Lindzen, a professor of meteorology at MIT and professor emeritus Fred Singer of the University of Virginia.

Okay, so where were these people these past few years, when report after report insisted that no scientists disagreed with the statement that global warming is the result of human activities? Since the Bush administration (and their for-profit supporters) failed to win the debate by suppressing the evidence, now they trot out experts to defend their position?

And if these experts fail to prevail in this debate, I hear that Bush has been practicing a new tactic.
