It was feeling for a while that the faux debate over climate change was waning and maybe engaging in it was more distraction than a constructive effort. That feeling started after the very striking change in mainstream climate change coverage that followed An Inconvenient Truth.
It got a bit stronger with the election of Obama and his reaffirmation of carbon controls and alternative energy as important goals.
But In it for the Gold has some bad news on that one and the denialist blogosphere is really picking up steam, so perhaps that was a bit of premature jubilation…sigh. Maybe when the current “global cooling” ends….but I won’t count on it!
