Emily Yoffe of Slate magazine only has a couple of problems with Al Gore's push to fight global warming. First, she does not understand how we will know what the weather will be at the end of this century if we cannot reliably predict whether it will rain tomorrow. She also has a fundamental issue with listening to someone who argues in a new book that the politics of fear has reduced our ability to rationally debate public policy while he uses exactly this approach when it comes to climate change. Excellent editorial.
