"The Civil Heretic"

The New York Times Magazine has a fascinating piece on science wunderkind Freeman Dyson. "The Civil Heretic" is primarily about his contrarian views on global warming. An Obama supporter and the farthest thing from a right wing ideologue, his scepticism is based primarily on what he believes is inadequite evidence, i.e. science. He acknowledges he many be wrong but unlike the Bushites does provide the basis for a serious discussion of issues. The article is also a biographical essay about a great man. Well worth the read.
