Lomborg did not change his mind. You know that, I hope. He argues for more incisive thought about global warming and the correct policy responses; he’s not in denial over its reality.

Ben Stine got dumped by the NYT. I’m surprised you haven’t blogged about it yet.

How did I miss that post? Odd. Sorry :)

My sense was that the original WSJ story on government aircraft was generally accurate, but given a misleading title (reported well but with questionable editing). And given this morning’s follow-up, you have to have the belief that it was a story that needed to be told. Methinks Chittum prefers critizing media he disagrees with over government spending money it doesn’t have.
