Scientific literacy at the Washington Post

A reply by the Washington Post ombudsman to complaints about George Will’s column on climate change (see previous post) cites a statement from the University of Illinois Arctic Climate Research Center which he says backs up Will.

But a Washington Monthly blogger finds it says the opposite of what Will and the Post claim, and wonders if the ombudsman actually bothered to read it.

“I don’t know what would be worse: that he did, and takes it to support Will, or that he didn’t take his job seriously enough to bother.”
