gwill.gifIn the Washington Post last week, columnist George F. Will recycled a column he’s been printing for years which denies that there’s a global warming crisis. The column earned widespread condemnation across the progressive blogosphere because it contained so many egregious scientific errors. The Washington Post has yet to issue a correction and has instead defended Will, claiming the column was “checked to the fullest extent possible.” In a new report, The Wonk Room’s Brad Johnson compiles, explains, and debunks all the false statements from the column that the Washington Post is willing to stake its reputation on. Download the report and take action.
