In Kate Mackintosh's letter about people peddling 'disinformation' on Channel 4's The Great Global Warming Swindle (Letters, AJ 29.03.07), she signed off as 'vice chair, Scientists for Global Responsibility'. Like the Guardian's George Monbiot, instead of offering properly referenced refutations of the claims made (which we would all like to see), her letter is a McCarthy-esque rant about the people who made the programme.

Oddly enough, around three quarters of the 13 bigwigs in her Scientists for Whatsit organisation appear to be architects and engineers, with a retired physics teacher and a secretary thrown in for good measure. Doubtless extremely kind, committed and thoughtful folk. But not exactly what you and I would call 'scientists'.

Disinformation eh? Hmm.
