But whatever you may think, Ted, of the Guardian's journalistic standards, the core fact reported is not in dispute. AEI is commissioning dubiety on anthropogenic climate change at $10k/crack. That's fine, so long as we remember, when the time comes to review the fruits of AEI's philanthropy, that the bare existence of a skeptical literature, in such a context, does not, by itself, supply occasion for actual skepticism.
