New York Times obfuscating climate change

This is a little weird. One could play a fun game of 'find the error' with this column by John Tierney (which suggests the consensus on anthropogenic climate change is driven by confirmation bias,) if one were invited to parties. But, actually? Bringing corporatist newspaper columns to parties might be a habit standing in the way of such invitations.

Mr. Tierney is not a think tank employee or a government shill. He's an employed reporter, or at least a columnist, with the paper of record. It just seems bizarre his editors feel that more doubt needs to be injected into the conversation.
