The Sciences

Thanks for the Traffic, Morano

The IntersectionBy Chris MooneyMay 20, 2009 7:43 PM


Sign up for our email newsletter for the latest science news last post, "The Deniers' Last Stand," has had quite a lot of incoming traffic from ClimateDepot. I guess Mark Morano over there somehow thinks I help him make his point--which, presumably, is that journalists are biased against global warming skeptics, who are really just on a quest to uncover the truth and ask the hard questions. Yet if Morano sees me as Exhibit A of his argument, I see him the same way in making one of mine--namely, that the Internet is just as hospitable a place for people who attack mainstream science as for those who defend it, and thus no salvation for science at a time when it is vanishing from the mainstream media. The army of climate skeptics descending here via Morano's link, posting comments making claims that have been soundly refuted a gazillion times, amply underscore that fact. Morano's followers can post as may comments as they want, to be sure--I'm quite confident our own readers can and will refute them. So Mark: Let's keep linking to each other, and here's to ya. Only one of us can be right about global warming--but on the web, we can both have lots of readers!
