Several weeks ago, George Will wrote a global-warming debunk column in the WP. An immediate uproar followed including a letter from one scientific organization that will had misinterpreted telling him so. Will and the editorial staff held off even answering the many critics for some days then finally did so, but backtracked not an inch (pomposity is a fragile mental state and requires a large internal defense budget).
Today, in a WP column, Chris Mooney (author of “The Republican War on Science”) again takes Will to task. Now, we’ll wait to see whether the pompous pundit will have the integrity to respond in some manner which is not merely a defense of his reputation, such as it is.
