Harold Ambler, a local musician and freelance journalist, is also the author of naysayer book called “Don’t Sell Your Coat: Surprising Truths About Climate Change”, which has positive reviews by the likes of Joe Bastardi and Freeman Dyson. I haven’t read it, but it’s just finding its way to my Kindle now.
Peculiarly, Ambler challenged Revkin to a debate on climate change. Despite his background in journalism, Ambler totally misconstrues Revkin. (He ought to brush up on his Jay Rosen “view from nowhere” reading.)
Regardless, I’ve been thinking that SOMEBODY ought to take up all these calls for debate. And while I may “lose” a couple, I’m interested in sharpening my debating skills and catching up on the latest denier memes. So…
Harold Ambler, since we are neighbors, I am interested in making your acquaintance, say over coffee at Spider House, and discussing what an informative and constructive public debate would look like. Based only on where your book is advertised, I am confident that we would have a lot of points of disagreement to discuss. I am interested to determine whether there is a debate format on which we could agree. This site will give you some idea of my perspective.
