Climateballs: O’Sullivan strikes again - Hot Topic

Gareth Renowden Feb 23, 2014

John O’Sullivan — the pseudosceptic who is serially and persistently wrong about almost everything he chooses to write about, and who has made a career out of misrepresenting his own abilities and qualifications — is at it again.
