Climate scuffle at Boing Boing

Visiting guest blogger Charles Platt has been challenging Boing Boing readers assumptions, for example mounting a stirring defense of Walmart. Overnight he put up several posts highly skeptical of climate change orthodoxy and positively reviewing various skeptic and denier books. Shortly thereafter Boing Boing co-host Cory Doctorow replied with a flood of pieces laying out the extensive evidence and vitae of those who formed the orthodoxy that climate change is real and anthropogenic - human caused. Check the comments here where Mr Platt expresses surprise and some displeasure over the immediate posting of extensively annotated refutations to his climate denier posts and Doctorow replies.

It makes for an interesting back and forth.
