I’ve largely been out of the climate wars fray for years, but yesterday’s Hansen v. Pielke thread leads to a couple of observations:
- New business model: mention Hansen and Pielke a lot.
- The quality and usefulness of commenter contributions scales as the inverse square of their relative anonymity. (This blog in recent years has largely been a conversation among friends, whose names I know. Yesterday, reminder – wow, there are a bunch of anonymous assholes out there who don’t have much to say but have a real, um, flair for saying it anyway!)
- Would mentioning Al Gore help my new business model? Or Bjorn Lomborg?
Oh, and did I mention Roger Pielke Jr. and James Hansen?
