Just what happened to throw Michael Mann into such a hysterical hissy-fit that he would “tweet” out such an idiotic and childish “tweet?” The New York Times hired Bret Stephens to write about the climate. This video highlights why Michael Mann has plenty to be upset about.
Bret is articulate, well informed, calm, cool and collected, and does a phenomenal job presenting the skeptic’s case against gianormous public spending on fighting climate change. So far, it looks like he is doing a fantastic job at the New York Times, so I doubt Michael Mann will be reinstating his subscription anytime soon. Boo Hoo.
Wemple’s a clever fellow. I’m sure he understands Stephens’s point about the dangers of certainty, particularly based on sophisticated mathematical models that have been proven wrong in the past. What I think sailed past Wemple and so “many, many people” was Stephens’s subtler point about the sanctimonious condescension of people who claim to be motivated solely by their passionate care for the planet.
Best statement of the 21st Century:
-Science is a mode of inquiry. Not a belief structure.
