Frank Moraes at the blog Frankly Curious has some nice things to say about a recent Oath Keepers piece I wrote. We read each other's blogs. He's good people.
Moraes writes about a variety of different subjects, but the thing that interests me most about him is he's a scientist with a PhD in Atmospheric Physics - so when he writes about related subjects, he has more credibility than the average satirical blogger with a resume that includes, ahem, true crime articles in Maxim.
I recently posted a piece crunching the numbers on how often Politifact caught each presidential candidate in a lie. I liked what I did. But I kind of knew that someone with greater sophistication about statistics would be able to write a more solid piece. Frankly Curious did it. I have a lot of pride about what I write, but Frank's version was better.
He does tackle climate change as well. Here's his takedown of the "climate always changes" trope you've heard from your local rightwinger. And if you've ever broken out in hives over a George Will article, Frank's got a gift for you called "George Will Is Still An Idiot." It's about Will generally, but down in the comments section Moraes gets into how Will is specifically an idiot about climate change.
His blog is fun, but I bring your attention to it, because he has real expertise, and that's good to know when you're out here in the internet. Not everyone's opinion is equal when we're talking about some subjects.
