‘A Climate Reckoning’ in the Times


Today in the Times there is a huge, Page One take-out about a noble scientist who has devoted his whole life to bringing the gospel of global warming to the great unwashed, only to find that

Challengers have mounted a vigorous assault on the science of climate change. Polls indicate that the public has grown more doubtful about that science.

Now, the Times could have said, “Other scientists with their own scientific findings have raised questions,” etc. Instead, we find an unspecified mob of “challengers” mounting a vigorous “assault” on “the science of climate change.”

Over at the Times, when it comes to climate change, there is “the science” . . . and then there’s everything else.
