Energy Smart looks at a recent NY Times review of books on Climate Change--including Newt Gingrich's newest tome, A Contract
On With The Earth, and how it glosses over misinformation and general truthiness found within to just muddy the waters of the national dialogue.
Andrew Revkin, at the New York Times, who I generally find very much worth reading, has a dousy today. In a review of three global warming books, Revkin speaks of Bjorn Lomborg as a "centrist" and discusses his book without suggesting that there any factual errors or how truthiness runs roughshod over the truth.[..]
It is hard to explain all the problems with this review as it truly mischaracterizes these presentations. And, well, what does it say about the level of debate and discussion when someone whose work focuses on truthiness rather than truth (see misrepresenting evidence, reviews are coming in, truthiness, putting the heat on Lomborg just, well, to start) is represented as a centrist, someone reasonable in the discussion?
