This week the UN is holding it's 17th annual climate change conference, COP 17, in Durban, South Africa with the US not in attendance (with the possible exception of famous climate change denier Sen. James Inhofe R-OK who may address the conference by video). Last year I posted one of my all time most popular posts on how Barry Sanders playing stats can teach climate change deniers about how one should not dismiss all of climate change science every time the local weather gets colder especially here in the US. I thought this year I would present another sports example as the NBA's season is finally about to get underway after a lockout and many deniers such as Inhofe are also SportsCenter junkies in my unscientific opinion.
Think Progress has reported how the billionaire Koch brother's group American's for Prosperity has bullied Congressional Republicans into publicly doubting climate change. Will Charles Barkley be bullied into opposing Shaq's induction into the Hall of Fame?
