Battle over climate change has been joined ... by a leftist physicist

The New York Times Magazine has a surprisingly good (and fair-minded) piece on eclectic physicist Freeman Dyson's attacks against the climate-change armageddonist view that earth is immolating itself with CO2 admissions.

He doesn't deny that the planet is warming, or that humans are contributing to it, for that matter; rather, he simply points out that all plant life thrives on carbon dioxide, and that the earth has flourished in much warmer temperatures. 

In Dyson's estimation, the cost of stunting economic growth in emerging markets far outweighs the benefits of reducingCO2 admissions at the margins.  He also takes some gratuitous shots at Al Gore, calling him the green movement's "chief propagandist", and accuses NASA's James Hansen -- an advisor on Al Gore's Inconvenient Truth -- of turning his "science into an ideology."

I'm not sure it really adds anything to the climate change debate, but it's nice to see the New York Times give equal time to a point of view that it disagrees with.
