If you thought the last Robinson-DeFazio bout was a humdinger, stick around. You ain’t seen nothing yet.

The father, Art Robinson, is the scientist who created a petition some years back stating that there is no convincing evidence for global warming. It was signed by moree than 32,000 people with degrees in physical science, including 9,000 Ph.D.s.
