    re GMO Opponents Are the Climate Skeptics of the Left…

    the author, keith kloor, appears to be one of those writers who revel in being not-tribal while writing about hotly-contested issues, rather than digging into a subject and figuring out where the truth lies. how else to interpret remarks like this one: http://www.collide-a-scape.com/2012/08/16/whos-responsible-for-the-polluted-climate-discourse/#comment-117445 ?

    gleick is a hero and climategate is part of a decades-long attack on scientists, but obviously i’m just a deranged tribalist.

    i’m not the only one who finds keith kloor irritating: http://thinkprogress.org/climate/2009/11/01/204856/keith-kloor-trash-journalist/
