Is Jon Stewart Dropping the Ball on Climate Change?

But again, he's a talk show host. There's a lot going on in the world, and it's impossible to thoroughly understand the background of all of it. It's the wrong idea to be disappointed with Stewart -- instead, we should view the occasional climate confusion exhibited by the Daily Show as, generally, the ideal response to the great complexities inherent in climate. In the video above, Stewart can't call on the science to defeat skeptic Horner's claims -- so he uses common sense to point out that just because people might want to curb carbon emissions, that doesn't make them business-hating communists. That business and climate concerns can coexist. Same with the emails: he didn't have the details as to whether the inflammatory bits were cherry-picked -- but he had the common sense to say, 'of course this doesn't mean climate change is debunked'.
