Meanwhile, those of us who know climate science find it maddening.
A little bird pointed out to me an exercise you can do to establish just how out of touch with climate science the New York Times magazine writer, Nicholas Dawidoff, apparently is. Go to the article, and just search. Put in phrases like “United Nations” and “Intergovernmental Panel.” Yup, that’s right: Nowhere in the 8,000 word article will you find any reference to the definitive source of scientific information and consensus on global warming, the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. It just isn’t there, not even as something that Dyson can critique and argue against.
It’s simply stunning.
