Good Interview (Updated)

It starts out with this:

So, judged by your resume, you do not appear to be a right-wing reactionary moonlighting as an oil company stooge. How did a good soldier in the fight for environmental justice wind up in the company of such personae non gratae in your chosen field?

Then it goes on to talk about climate change and the politics of denial.

It’s a quick read, and, while Lawrence Solomon comes off sounding a little brusque, it’s intriguing enough that I’ll be picking up his book, The Deniers.

Check it out.

Update: Craig (who has been writing up a freakin’ storm) pointed out an article that made me cranky. Surprised me a little bit, too.

I’ve been following Solomon’s Denier series at the National Post.  Very good stuff.  He had a good bit yesterday about Wikipedia and the AGW brigade.

I just read it--and not only is it good, it’s irritating as hell. In fact, I’m kind of pissed off right now.

Pissed off, yet totally unsurprised, I’ll wager.

Er, uh, didn’t see the update.  I’m surprised that you’re surprised.

I stupidly believed that Wikipedia had a little more integrity. I know that they have a definite leftward slant--no doubt--but the battle he describes is just idiotic. Truly.

Wikipedia itself does not have integrity, that was shown a while back when it was revealed that Wikipedia’s managers have a secret mailing list to discuss behind closed doors ( the opposite of their supposed philosophy ).  Wikipedia itself is a failed experiment in my opinion.  If there is any controversy at all, it becomes mired in edit wars.  And the only way to figure out if there is an edit war going on on a topic is to peruse the edit commentary. 

This is not a successful model for collaborative knowledge.
