David Ignatius covers the Barton controversy for The Washington Post. Glad to see it’s hitting the bigtime. I would take issue with this, though:

Even President Bush agreed that the scientific evidence is solid by endorsing a Group of Eight communique this month that described climate change as “a serious and long-term challenge” and warning that human activities “contribute in large part to increases in greenhouse gases associated with the warming of our Earth’s surface.”

As Chris Mooney has carefully demonstrated (and many others have argued as well), the G8 statement shows a lot more movement of other countries’ positions toward America’s than vice versa.
