Long, long ago (November) and far, far away right here in Gristmill, I facilitated a debate between Fred Hutchison, über-conservative RenewAmerica columnist, and atmospheric scientist cum Gristmill reader mihan (mihan, are you out there? You’re gonna want to see this).

Never one to let things go, Fred has written an “issues analysis” of his Gristmill conversation (it’s also about his conversation with another scientist who dared to defend Einstein). Highly entertaining. Check it out. But be aware that Fred warns:

Reader support makes our work possible. Donate today to keep our climate news free. All donations TRIPLED!

As I summarize these debates for our readers, there will be moments that will be embarrassing for the two scientists, if they condescend to read this review.

Steel yourselves.
