George Will Strikes

I rarely read Will like this . I take it he’s feeling journalistically mistreated. I agree with him — I hope not out of cynicism but epistemic humility — that in a couple of decades, we’ll be on to some new claim about the Earth writ large and what all industrialized nations must do immediately to avert disaster. It’s worth a read if you follow George Will, though I haven’t followed up on his references (i.e., to the NYT article).
