More Spanking for 'The Coop'

Not warm to Barry

Among the many regurgitated, baseless claims political science professor Barry Cooper makes in his article on climate change, one in particular stood out. His claim that volcanoes emit more carbon dioxide than all humans ever was based on evidence submitted by -somebody.

A simple search finds peer-reviewed scientific articles
refuting that claim. But, when you have a source like "somebody," why would you question it? If a student in one of his classes submitted an essay with such a reference, what mark would they get?
