ECOworld: a website officially unconcerned about accuracy

longer text

We make no representation, explicit or otherwise, about the completeness, accuracy, or consistency of the data on our website, of the integrity of the services we provide, or of those with which we may interoperate.

Don't say you weren't warned.

The "environmental publishing company" ECOworld promises to keep "nature and technology in harmony," but the content of the website and the clear bias of editor Ed (Redwood) Ring shows that Ed would be more forthright if he adopted a nickname that demonstrates more clearly his leanings, say Ed (We Need More Freeways) Ring.

In a recent, strident and extended editor's note, Freeway Ring complains that climate change denial has fallen into humiliating disfavour in the mainstream media. He complains that people who want to continue arguing about global warming are "branded as ideological fanatics and corporate shills."

Well, if the shoe fits...

If Freeway Ring is NOT a corporate shill, we invite him to share the details of his funding and prove the point. (That would, of course, leave the possibility that he is still an ideological fanatic, but I suspect he might adjust his ideology pretty quickly if the money ran out.)

Follow-up:

  • Ed Ring's response, which was posted on EcoWorld and as a comment on Littlemore's blog entry
