Manzi v. Chait

Over on the Corner, Jim Manzi replies to Jonathan Chait’s column in the current issue of The New Republic criticizing Jim’s cover story from NRODT last June. Manzi writes today:

Global warming is a complex topic that depends upon inherently speculative predictions about the world’s economy and environment more than a century into the future, so there is plenty of room for principled disagreement. As a general rule, however, people like Mr. Chait who speak about it in tones of certainty mostly reveal that they are uninformed on the subject. While I recognize the constraints on length that prevented him from producing a doctoral dissertation, he never actually engages with the central arguments that I’ve made, at any level of abstraction.
