It's our favorite time of the year, in which Megan McArdle says something spectacularly dumb and has a public tantrum when everyone calls her an idiot. To better impress her dishonesty and stupidity on the public mind, she has two idiocies going at once: her There Are No Villains/Trump post and her Nobody Can Do Anything Ever/Climate Change post.
So far the latter post is creating more hubbub, probably because of this:
Evidently Michael Mann doesn't mess around. This isn't his first rodeo (which might make McArdle the rodeo clown).
Heh, that was fast. He knows the first thing you do with the world's McArdles is to look at their associations and sources of income. Lo and behold, McArdle and her husband are both tied financially to climate deniers. Mann isn't done with McArdle, however:
It's so life-affirming to see others pick up on McArdle's favorite themes and fallacies.
Mann obviously believes that if you do a job, you should do it well.
McArdle does not but she does believe that the enemy of her friends is her enemy.
And that's just a sample of McArdle's feedback. She was also discussed on the Majority Report, as I noted in comments earlier.
Next up: the cluster of f*ck that is her Gawker analysis.
