Professional Denialist

I have nothing of note to offer to the ongoing story of George Will’s horseshit-filled column from earlier in the week, alleging that global cooling was the scientific scare of the 70’s, and that global sea ice levels are unchanged over 30 years, which, to my knowledge, has not yet been corrected by The Washington Post.  Instead, I will just point you toward’s Yglesias’s summary, if you care to know how it came to pass, which lies have been documented, and what’s been done about it so far.

UPDATE: Although, as Steve Benen noted, there is sweet, sweet irony in the fact that the first sentence of this morning’s Will column is “A simple apology would have sufficed.”
