NEWSFLASH: Andrew Weaver & CBC drop his claim to Nobel fame

One of Andrew Weaver‘s prime cheerleaders over the years has been the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC). With only one previous exception of which I am aware, they’ve never failed to mention – and/or visually feature – his unearned Nobel laurel, which was featured (albeit falsely and grandiosely) in the judgment.

IPCC-nik Andrew Weaver’s “Wall of hate” wins him $50,000
