It has been an interesting couple of days for the Guardian’s Fred Pearce.
On February 1, he wrote a piece called “How the ‘climategate’ scandal is bogus and based on climate sceptics’ lies.” No surprise there, considering Pearce is an environmental writer at the left-wing Guardian and someone inclined to slap the title The Last Generation: How Nature Will Take Her Revenge for Climate Change on his latest book — a volume blurbed by Gaia fantasist James Lovelock thus: “We are now at war with Gaia and have no chance whatever of winning. Fred Pearce’s scholarly and thoughtful book analyzes the battlefield and will guide us in a sensible retreat to the place where we can negotiate a peace.” So that all fits, right?
But, uh, then — in short order — came these Pearce entries (still in the Guardian, mind you):
Don’t stop now, Mr. Pearce — you’re on a roll.
