We thought we were done with the topic of George Will and climate change. But now we’ve gotten an advanced look at Will’s latest column, set to run tomorrow in the Washington Post and in syndication. And it amounts to a stubborn defense of the amazing global warming denialist column he published earlier this month, that was ripped apart by just about everyone and their mother — including us.
This is going to make a lot of heads explode, but I actually think it’s a good thing. Better that Will and the Post (with its multi-layer editing process) totally own this. Then the credibility issue is crystal clear, and it will be similarly clear who at the Post cares about honest journalism and who doesn’t.
