Every so often something I write shakes up the climate skeptic hive. They also start buzzinglike mad, I have noticed, when you explain to them that their honeypot (the climate science cabal) is not really what excites them. Oh well, so much for transparency. In my latest post at the Yale Forum on Climate Change & the Media, I lay out my case in detail. This does not mean I am suggesting that aspects of climate science are not debatable, or that the hyperbolic rhetoric and exaggerated assertions of climate campaigners should not be called out. Indeed, it might be said that those who uncritically parrot these campaigners are merely the flipside of the same coin. The truth is, neither side is much willing to acknowledge the tribal (and ideological) nature of the climate debate.
