Writing about Mooney, writing about storms
I reviewed Chris Mooney’s new book, Storm World: Hurricanes, Politics, and the Battle Over Global Warming, for The American Prospect, and it’s up today. Gristmiller Kit Stolz reviewed it here a while ago, but uh, mine is … longer.
Anyway, the book is good, though not the galvanizing polemic that made his first book, The Republican War on Science, a bestseller. But Mooney’s got quite the knack for telling the back story on how science and politics became friends with benefits here in the U.S.
