Yes indeed. Sorry. Weeelll. No I’m not, really.
Anyway, so I was idly browsing my “shared by” in google reader and came across My Rebuttal to Romm which is by Keith Kloor who I know nothing about other than that I read Joe Romm ranting at him at some point. Kloor defends himself – read it if you’re interested – but more amusing was a comment left there which said: I’m not sure the whole huge post needs to be answered point-by-point. Morano feels comfortable just pointing to Romm posts and letting them speak for themselves though it didn’t say where this Morano linking occurred. But http://www.climatedepot.com/ (an amusing parody of denialdepot) seems to do it (in the interests of sanity I haven’t linked it): look at the current front page and there is a link to http://climateprogress.org/2009/11/01/keith-kloor-trash-journalist/, under what is a fairly neutral link-text. You do have to wonder, as the commentator suggests: what does it tell you about Romm that Morano is happy to link to him?
Why does Romm hate Kloor so much? I don’t know. Probably he is jealous of Kloor’s column in Nurture :-). You’ll immeadiately notice the rabid scepticism in that piece, of course.
