Climate Storm

So, in my first post as an in-house critic from the right at TNR, I took on what I thought was a pretty alarmist piece in the magazine on global warming by Al Gore.

A lot of bloggers have responded. Inside TNR, you can see Bradford Plumer, then me, then Plumer, then me. Ezra Klein responded, and you can see my reply back to him.

Joe Romm responded at length, employing a number of exclamation points. He covers a lot of the same ground that we did in a very detailed exchange two years ago, in which I made a set of claims, he interrogated them, I counter-interrogated, and so on. You can read the back-and-forth – me, Romm, me, Romm, me – and decide for yourself if you think I ought to spend my time interacting with him.

Obviously I’m incapable of objectivity on this subject, but it doesn’t seem to me that any of these criticisms have disproven any of my central claims.
