@ScottAdamsSays has recently been taking on the issue of climate change. He's not taken a side, but claims that each side sounds reasonable, and that the contrarians are more persuasive.

So when the news came today about 2016 being the hottest year on record, I searched and searched for a contrarian opinion, and couldn't find until Scott retweeted one.

Think it's persuasive?

How many times has each side been caught lying, manipulating, and misrepresenting data? Sounding reasonable is a bit moot if you also disclose that you are using "adjusted" data. Of course, one side never discloses that.

Haven't seen the book.
But fwiu raiki was deemed impermissible by many poskim a few years ago. Including the eidah etc. Hard to understand all these haskamas... (Besides for R Kaminetzke).
I bet the book is nowhere near as extreme​ as the way it is portrayed by the blogger you linked to.

similar to the way he endorsed Hillary?
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

PC alert!

I can guarantee that the haskamos do not reference the claims in the book. They say something like "the author seems like a nice guy and someone else gave him a haskamah, so I wish him success"

Perhaps. I would think RSK read it and completely agrees with its contents.

Ah the rationalists...the liberal elite of the Orthodox world.
All that either succeed in doing other than savoring their own indignance is to create what must now be referred to as the "Trump Effect." Keep pulling on the Chinese finger trap, boys. It's bound to loosen up eventually if you pull hard enough.

The tone of the article (especially at the end) is a bit over the top...

The rambam was a rationalist as well.  Not bad company.

Let's see if you can come up with some differences.
