Global Warming: TCS v. Al Gore and Andrew Sullivan

Robert Balling over at TCS goes after Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth” by noting a passage taken from this study, which got NRO’s Jonah Goldberg all excited. Andrew Sullivan more carefully reads what the study said and did not say and links to this piece which has in large font the following:

Emissions of greenhouse gases and aerosols due to human activities continue to alter the atmosphere in ways that are expected to affect the climate.

Since Jonah Goldberg has been lecturing Andrew Sullivan on more carefully reading source material, I’m a little shocked at this feeble reply. All Jonah did was to call TCS and have them whine about how their own source – which they may have misrepresented.

Back to Andrew:

I should say that I find the evidence for global warming overwhelming

No argument here!

Update: Iain Murphy of the Corner Kids at NRO tries to smear those of us who understand global warming by noting that the folks at the company that Ken Lay built also understand this issue. Ah Iain, Ken Lay may have been less than honest about the accounting in late 2001 – but he was still a very smart person.
