      deregulation continue to win many of that conflict's major battles. His
      small-government advocacy has featured a fascinating and influential
      blend of misdirection, provocation and calculated scientific
      manipulation that has thoroughly flummoxed his opponents. Studying
      Bate's method -- injecting himself into environmental and public health

      credentials -- it becomes clear why conservatives keep winning these
      battles, and why scientists and environmentalists seem unable to keep
      up. Indeed, given the success and prominence of his efforts, their
      failure to identify or counter him over the years is nothing short of

      true intentions hidden...
