Paul again trashes Juliet Eilperin’s reporting below. But he makes this astonishing statment: “I have found that talking with them is a waste of my time (unlike a lot of my conservative, climate realist friends) and that they need to be exposed for what they are — alarmists and hopelessly biased.” That’s absurd, Paul. Have you ever TRIED to talk not to “THEM,” but specifically to Juliet? THis isn’t a matter of “currying favor,” as you put it; it’s a simple matter of giving somebody a chance to prove their own fairness, and also of giving yourself a chance to be heard by the readership of the reporter in question. Refusing even to talk to somebody, until you have tried otherwise, is cutting off your nose to spite your whole existence. It’s not effective advocacy. I repeat: Juliet is a pro. I know her to be one. She already has told me, in response to my earlier post, that she will gladly meet with me and Paul. So Paul, here’s your chance to try to get your point of view actually heard. Only a fool would turn that down — and I know, Paul, that you are no fool. You do great work, phenomenally important work. I have applauded your work repeatedly and will continue to do so. But your response is beneath you. You can do better than that, my friend.
