Yesterday, the Koch-funded climate denier Pat Michaels attacked the “hype” around Hurricane Irene in a Forbes.com post. “It is doubtful that Irene will even cough up eight bodies,” Michaels ghoulishly predicted. That text was silently edited on Forbes to “hopefully kill fewer than the eight people who died in Gloria,” but the syndicated version on Yahoo.com remains the same.

Update

Unfortunately, Michaels’ optimism that the threat of Hurricane Irene was just “hype” was wrong. The American death toll is already 9 lives, as the massive storm tears its way up the Eastern seaboard. Irene had already killed two people in the Caribbean.

Update

Michaels is also the author of “A Blizzard of Global-Warming Hype” and “More Gas About Global Warming,” for the Koch-founded Cato Institute.
