The discussion continues to devolve:
A prominent environmental blogger has attacked us. A well-known environmental-advocacy group pressured NPR into reading a statement critical of the book at the end of an interview I had given on Scott Simon’s Weekend Edition show. Even Paul Krugman and Brad DeLong got in on the action before they’d even read the book.
The critics are implying that we dismiss any threats from global warming; but the entire point of our chapter is to discuss global-warming solutions, so obviously that’s not the case.
That’s how it is in the Age of Change. I can’t wait for an issue that is near and dear to the alarmists to devolve into similar lunacy. Each and every day I live, I am more skeptical of the GW claims. And I used to be a fairly alarmist when I first read the science. Now I have little faith in any of the books being uncooked.
