My recent post on the New York Times attack on Gore has gotten around a lot (seeSlate, for example). Robert Wright (of Nonzero fame) also brought it up on in a dialogue with Mickey Kaus. I encourage you to watch the whole segment, as I think it really has the right take on this incident. Wright says I've been "even-handed" towards Gore, and I take that as a compliment. To reiterate: Gore has the science almost entirely right, although there are certainly areas where you can take him to task. If I do pick around the edges, it's because a) I've become a severe storm junkie; and b) I feel the responsibility to hold my own presumptive allies to a high standard.
