Kudos to Fish Wrapper For Publishing Rebuttal to Op-Ed Piece

Today I have to give kudos to the Fish Wrapper and commentary editor Galen Barnett for publishing an "In My Opinion" article that I wrote. It was written in response to the op-ed piece written by Laurie David regarding Al Gore's attempt to donate 50,000 copies of "An Inconvenient Truth" to the National Science Teachers Association (documented here). My piece can be seen here.

In the course of our e-mail exchange regarding the column, Mr Barnett made an interesting comment. He said that if he had known the other side of the story as I described in my piece, he would not have published the original piece by Ms. David in the first place. I appreciate his honesty and willingness to show both sides of the story.

Update:Somehow the NSTA found out about my column and put a link to it on their web site.

I also received an e-mail from a gentleman in response to my story that pointed out that the National Resources Defense Council - along with 60 Minutes, Phil Donahue, and Meryl Streep - was behind the mass hysteria of the "Alar scare". Fortunately, it has been debunked, but it certainly decimated the apple industry in 1989.

an inconvenient truth

A well-done article, and like you, I congratulate the fishwrap in this rare instance.
