Chronicle Probably Won't Ban Climate Change Deniers, Despite Petition
It will not, however, issue a fatwa against those climate change skeptics.

This marginal but pernicious group has become a White Whale for Berkeley author Steve Olson, who has launched an aggressive campaign to persuade mainstream newspapers to stop "reporting both sides." His new online petition, which garnered more than 1,700 signatures in about two weeks, urges the Chronicle to stop validating these "misguided conspiracy theorists" by allowing them to traipse through its letters section.
And according to Chron editorial page editor John Diaz, San Francisco's hometown paper is unlikely to follow suit.
"I don't think you can in any way suggest we're giving aid and comfort to the deniers," Diaz says.
