Since November, Lawrence Solomon has been publishing columns in Canada’s National Post about scientists who question global warming orthodoxy. I thought the series was over, but last Friday, Solomon wrote a column about French scientist Claude Allegre’s “second thoughts.” Allegre’s story is significant because he’s not only a prominent scientist (like many of the “deniers”) but has strong socialist credentials. Moreover, he was on the other side of this issue for many years. In other words, he’s a leftwinger with relevant expertise who changed his mind just when we the evidence for human induced global warming supposedly became incontrovertible. Does Al Gore know people like this even exist?
