“… essential reading for anyone following the politics of the green movement these days…. this is the art of blogging at its best.“
Thanks to everyone who voted for CP for TreeHugger’s Best of Green Awards.
The content Joe Romm and crew pump out on Climate Progress is unrelenting in its pursuit of exposing the disinformation on the part of climate change deniers and is essential reading for anyone following the politics of the green movement these days. Though their philosophy is one of incrementalism, they’re insider-y, and we don’t always agree with their analysis, when it comes right down to it, these guys rise to the call of duty, and the green blogosphere would be lacking without them. From detailing the political history of the Koch family and their legacy of anti-environmental obstruction or breaking down the errors in climate change reporting, this is the art of blogging at its best.
“Incrementalism”?! Ahh, if only there were 60 Senators who thought the policies advocated here were merely incremental….
For the record, my philosophy is that we need a WWII-style and WWII-scale effort to avoid catastrophic global warming, but the US political system ain’t there yet, which poses a challenge for all bloggers on the subject. I appreciate the recognition even more when it comes from those who don’t always agree with my analysis.
