Re: Science Saturday: Christmas Optimism Edition (John Horgan & George Johnson)
Wow, how did you guys let the subject of global warming slip into your discussion? Bloggingheads has effectively avoided the subject completely... It is really significant when you do start to talk about it...not to worry - your discussion was tepid and lame - confining yourselves to perpetuating a debate, promoting false controversy and commenting on the style of a few books.
George and John manage to comment without enthusiasm on the perhaps the most important story of all times. I want to blame the ownership of Bloggingheads - the NYTimes for avoiding any substantive or even exciting discussion of this issue.
