Site: No Frakking Consensus

Slant: Sceptic

Active: yes


This blog is not about fracking – a procedure used to harvest natural gas. Its name is, instead, an expression of exasperation. A website called NOconsensus.org came first. Its message is that there is a diversity of scientific and philosophical opinion regarding global warming. It’s alarming that this diversity is absent from most media accounts. While it’s perfectly OK to disagree with someone’s point-of-view, it is not OK to pretend that that point-of-view doesn’t exist. “Disappearing” unfashionable opinions is intolerant and anti-democratic.
