Bailey and carbon
Nick Gillespie writes that "Ron Bailey is by far the most scrupulously honest and intellectually serious science writer I know." As a science writer who's worked with Nick, I'll have to live with that perhaps condemnatory judgement. As for Bailey, I think his willingness to rethink global warming--and risk being called a "Pontius Pilate" for it--indeed does speak very well of him. For me, having written relatively little about global warming over the years (including this), coming to think a carbon tax has merit was undoubtedly a less stressful transition.
