Continuing on the global warming theme

A prominent young Republican at UCLA wrote an editorial in the Daily Bruin in light of the IPCC report trying to deny the consensus and implications contained therein. Unfortunately for him, his editorial was so full of intellectual dishonesty and a complete disregard for fact that it defies belief.

I sent in an email to the editorial board in some sort of attempt to counterbalance the obvious untruths contained therein. Turns out they published a redacted version of my response in the form of an LTE.

I'm not complaining that they didn't publish the full version--it was likely too long and included links to charts and what not. What bothers me more is that the Republican in question has any more permission to publish editorials in the paper after such a shameless sacrifice to the altar of bald-faced lying.

Are we really this desperate for intelligent, young conservative viewpoints? Just another one in the sad line of Ben Ferguson, Ben Domenech and likely so many others. Can't they do better than that?
