You’ve posted links to 3 different critiques and reposted your own lengthy criticism of their previous book but can’t bother to post their rebuttals, which include a fairly damning email thread from the guy at Climate Progress.

And I’ll just say that it’s amusing to me that it took some PC heresy to get leftists like Klein to notice that, Hey!, this popular science book isn’t real rigorous!

Funny how that never came up when they were asserting that abortion cut crime…better late than never, I suppose.
