Cameron Is Chicken

After challenging skeptics of global warming to a shoot-out only five months ago, director James Cameron is now running for cover, Climate Depot reports:

[Cameron] challenged three high profile global warming skeptics to a public debate at a global warming and energy conference. But Cameron backed out of the debate at the last minute after environmentalists ‘came out of the woodwork’ to warn him not to engage in a debate with skeptics because it was not in his best interest. 

UPDATE: Cameron calls his jilted rivals “swine.”

UPDATE II: A spokesman explains Cameron’s sudden bout of stage fright: “Morano is not at James Cameron’s level to debate, and that’s why that didn’t happen. . . . Cameron should be debating someone who is similar to his stature in our society.”

We have gone from Sam Peckinpah’s realistic portrayal of violent death to a gory ritual of metal ripping ... Read More
