'The nastiness that followed was predictable'
Charley rightly points out the nasty reactions
of right-wing bloggers regarding Al Gore's winning of the Nobel Prize. But then he promotes a nasty reaction
to a Herald editorial
critical of Al Gore's winning of the Nobel Prize. ... You know, there's a difference between the 'opinion' pages of a newspaper and the 'news organization' as a whole. But such small factual matters don't seem to count at BMG, even though David says
he'd "stack up our sourcing on factual matters against anyone's." ... Oh, look: Both the Herald
yesterday ran on their 'opinion' pages virtually the same Bjørn Lomborg piece critical of Al Gore's winning the Nobel Prize. I'm eagerly awaiting Charley's promotion of a post condemning the Globe's 'denialists' ways, questioning its credibility as a 'news organization' and finishing up with the kicker, 'Why does the Globe keep calling itself a newspaper?' ... Oh, my disclosure.
Do you think it's OK that I link to a disclosure on my blog? Or should I say I'm a Herald reporter in my post? I'm going to do both just to be safe. ...P.S.
-- Here's a pretty good review
of three new books about global warming. It pretty much dismantles many (though not all) of Bjørn Lomborg's arguments. It pretty much dismantles many (though not all) of the left's approaches toward fighting global warming. I'm not wild about its endorsement of emission 'caps' to combat global warming. But solutions will require compromises. ... Here's an out-of-box piece
on energy, oil and global warming. I assume we're still allowed to debate the 'solutions' for global warming, right? Or has that debate officially been declared 'over' too? ...
