In February Megan claimed "I don't blog about the science" and then went on to assert that "the science is so uncertain". Earth to Megan: scientists quantify their uncertainty, that is part of science, so the bald statement "the science is so uncertain" would disqualify her claim not to blog about the science. But that isn't the only absurdity in Megan's stance
"I not only believe that anthropogenic global warming is happening, but also support stiff carbon or source fuels taxes in order to combat it." MEGAN MCARDLE FEB 16th
Okay let's forgive the management speak. What kind of ardent advocate of carbon taxes picks this likely trio as experts on anthropogenic global warming?
Ron Bailey holds a degree in philosophy and economics, he is the author of Eco-Scam: The False Prophets of Ecological Apocalypse published by the Cato Institute . Jonathan Adler worked for the Competitive Enterprise Institute for nine years,and before that was an intern at Cato , his area of expertise - Law. Pat Michaels the only actual scientist amongst Megan's 'experts' needs no introduction, oh, he's a Senior Fellow at the Cato Institute . So all three of them have close ties to think tanks, all three of them have ties to the Cato Institute.
So Megan's claim to believe in global warming can be likened to supporting Arsenal, but having all your favourite players from Spurs. Perhaps it would be more accurate to say that Megan has outsourced her rationale to the Think Tanks.
