In the wake of the latest developments in the George Will scandal, I sent him this:
Dear Mr. Hiatt,
[Introductory Comments]…I believe what I’ve called the “Republican War on Science” continues, and the George Will saga represents a stunning example. In my opinion, the Post editorial/oped
page makes a terrible mistake by not correcting his manifest errors; but leave that aside–you’ve said people should instead “debate him.” Would you publish an oped by me exposing Will’s egregious errors, misrepresentations, and distortions of the science of global warming,
and thus further debate?
What do folks think the response will be (if there is one)? I think that if Hiatt is calling for “debate” then he should definitely publish an oped by someone setting Will’s errors straight, no?
P.S.: Andrew Revkin shows Will is still wrong, way wrong, about sea ice.
