    The death of civil discourse: Twitterverse eviscerates Bret Stephens over climate column

    I think he picked a wrong topic to try to mediate on his first try

    The New York Times's Bret Stephens might be the most hated man in America right now.

    His crime? Actually being pragmatic on the debate around climate change, while avoiding being blinded by partisanship by playing strictly to one side.

    The backlash against Stephens, a former Wall Street Journal conservative columnist and proud #NeverTrump member who recently signed on with the Times, follows his (completely reasonable) debut column that urges each side of the climate change debate to be open to listening to the other side, in order to have a better understanding around possible solutions.

    But compromise is a big no-no in today's completely intolerable political landscape, which has declared that there cannot be any debate on this issue. Just ask John Kasich how things worked out for him when he based his presidential run on healing a polarized country and compelling its political system to work for the good of the country again.
    Seriously, the only debate should be oi how best to deal with Climate Change, not whether or not it exists.

    Wall Street wipes out almost any wealth in minority neighborhoods while handing money over to the members of the administration that made certain there were almost no conditions on Wall Street being bailed out while they did it?

    No problemo.

    Some goofballs probably made a hand sign that signifies white power?

    Somebody hit the air raid siren.

    Bailouts started under Bush. White Collar crime is notoriously hard to prosecute in the USA. Much of what happened wasn't actually illegal due to lax laws on financial speculation. Obama still passed tougher wall street reform and gave us the Consumer Protection Bureau.

    And that's a complete mischaracterization of why people are upset. They're upset that a dude who's openly a /climate denialist/ is getting in-fact-checked space on the op-ed page, in addition to the NYT op/ed pages continuing to be deeply unreflective of the actual range of political opinion in the country.
