On the climate-change front, Denis Dutton, founder of the superb Arts & Letters Daily Web site, has created a new site, Climate Debate Daily, as a forum for both sides in the ferocious controversy over global warming. The site’s lucid dual format is exactly what has been needed to shed scholarly light on this heavily politicized battle, which has been very difficult to follow for everyone but fanatical true believers.

Thank God someone has finally taken this debate to the scholarly forum of the internets, where the time-tested analytical techniques of “fisking” and the “fact-checking of asses” can, at long last, be brought to bear.  And I must once again as for a moment of silence to mourn the big tragic accident which killed all the world’s scientists, destroyed all their lives’ work, and left us in this nightmare world of pure opinion.  Still, they left us the internets, so I guess no real damage done.  Hmm, I wonder if the Zionist Rosicrucian conspiracy killed all the scientists with their space lasers in order to replenish “proteus”‘s herds of gay sex/snuff slaves?  Perhaps someone will set up a superb website where we may examine both sides of this puzzling issue.

The old-guard feminist establishment has also rushed out of cold storage to embrace Hillary Clinton via tremulous manifestoes of gal power that have startlingly exposed the sentimental slackness of thought that made Gloria Steinem and company wear out their welcome in the first place. Hillary’s gonads must be sending out sci-fi rays that paralyze the paleo-feminist mind — because her career, attached to her husband’s flapping coattails, has sure been heavy on striking pious attitudes but ultra-light on concrete achievements.
