I'm locking horns with Reason's Ronald Bailey early next month at the following conference put on by Michael Shermer's Skeptics Society:

Why are we still debating climate change? How soon will we hit peak oil supply? When politics mix with science, what is being brewed? Join speakers from the left & the right, from the lab & the field, from industry & advocacy, as we air the ongoing debate about whether human activity is actually changing the climate of the planet.

Bailey and I are debating, for an hour, the question of "Distorting Science: Who's Worse, The Left or the Right?" I don't see how I can lose if the argument is about this country and he concedes to me that the religious conservatives are really bad about this--that's half the cake right there. Then the real debate will come down to "who's worse," corporate interests on environmentalists...Here, Bailey and I may well differ. It certainly should be interesting. Debating tips welcomed....I'll be blogging more anticipatory stuff as this gets closer.
