While we are heating things up, let’s award a Scammie for climate change denialists:

In late September, a group of 500 “prominent scientists and professionals” sent a letter to the UN Secretary-General declaring that there is no climate emergency .

Subsequent analysis found these claims to be “biased, cherry-picking, inaccurate, misleading.”  (Also worth  noting that just a tiny minority (10 signatories) of the 500 listed are actually climate scientists.)
