Updated diagram of the electronic network of global warming ‘skeptics’ (and right-wing think-tanks in general). I have also uploaded a program which I wrote to explore the think-tank network (semi-)automatically, as well as the starting URLs for the web exploration. Can you find them?

Another part, in squadrons and gross bands,
On bold adventure to discover wide
That dismal world, if any clime perhaps
Might yield them easier habitation, bend
Four ways their flying march
, along the banks
Of four infernal rivers, that disgorge
Into the burning lake their baleful streams —
Abhorred Styx, the flood of deadly hate;
Sad Acheron of sorrow, black and deep;
Cocytus, named of lamentation loud
Heard on the rueful stream; fierce Phlegeton,
Whose waves of torrent fire inflame with rage.

Happy New Year to All! Today we are pleased to launch the second volume of the International Journal of Inactivism, the world’s foremost scholarly publication on inactivism, inactivists, inaction, and inactionology, especially with regard to global warming regulation. We start off this issue with an excerpt from John Milton’s Paradise Lost ; we hope you enjoy it, and as before, feedback and contributions from you for this journal are welcome!
