An Open Letter to the Honorable Lamar Smith, Chairman, U.S.
Audra J. Wolfe

Nice piece. A relatively minor nit: I don’t think “…for no other reason than that their findings challenge the fundamental assumptions of free-market capitalism” is quite correct. Rather, their findings challenge the assumptions that certain transactions by certain parties (especially corporations) are in fact free-market capitalism (they aren’t, because they have costs to be borne by others not party to the transactions).

Support of climate change findings does not mean that one must attack the notion of free-market capitalism.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
