Two quick global warming related issues:
First, two reports were recently released exonerating the Climategate scientists. One was released by the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency* and another by a special British investigation. The scientists "didn't skew science to inflate evidence of man-made global warming," but were a little too secretive and acted like doofuses in some cases. But the science is sound. Should we expect apologies from all the people (I'm looking your way, Beck, Hannity, DeMint, et al) that smeared them in a political ploy to debunk the idea that humans are causing global warming thereby avoiding regulations on greenhouse gases? Probably not.
Second, a large chunk of America is now suffering under a massive heat wave. Can we assume that the skeptics will take this as evidence of global warming just as they take news of cold weather as evidence of its falsehood? Again, probably not.
*On a side note, as a person of Dutch heritage with the most outrageous Dutch name you will ever encounter, let me just express my extreme pleasure with how the World Cup is unfolding. Once David Villa gets a mouthful of Van Bommel's elbow and a thighful of his cleats, I expect Spain to fold and become as irrelevant in world soccer as they are in world politics. Am I taking this too seriously? Probably. Hup!
