Sweating the DetailsThis is a fine summary from Roger Pielke Jr. on what systematically goes so wrong with the climate change 'disucssion'.
In a response to Revkin, Peter Gleick illustrates what is all too common among scientists who call for action on climate change -- he seems to suggest that those who point out inaccuracies are the problem, not those who commit the original errors:This is just an excellent summary.
The garrison mentality will finally discredit those sticking to it.
As Pielke puts it so well:
What Gleick call's "muddying the public's attention" is what many people would simply call "getting the facts right."
