“But there’s a lot more to mass media than us,” as Charlie Petit puts it:

  • Chris Mooney: We Have Met the Enemy – and It Isn’t Ignorance;
    Ah. I knew it.
    This is why my brother in law, a terrific and kind fellow in most regards, is incapable of thinking that little ol’ mankind is able to change the climate of a whole planet. And he’s no fundamentalist. Just conservative, distrustful of gov’t, and sure scientists somehow mislead themselves.
  • Charles Alexander: Beyond an Unreasonable Doubt;
    It’s a book review.
    I’m pretty well convinced that, overall, the science writing press has not done much false-balance reporting on climate change for years now. But there’s a lot more to mass media than us.
