Well, this is odd. Through a concatenation of events I seem to have been drawn into a debate with my esteemed colleague, Ara Trembly. The casus belli was the keynote address of one Albert Gore Jr. at this week's IASA conference in Nashville.

I attended this keynote intending an objective news item on the speech, but as I was wrapping up my writing, I was asked to contribute a blog. Pressed for time, I changed the lede to something more subjective, sent the piece to a new editor of ours and moved on to the next session. So, imagine my surprise when the reference to a recent estimate by AIR Worldwide about storm-related damages appeared in my article. I have no issue with the study itself, it's just that if I was seeking to buttress Gore's points about climate change (which I wasn't) or had the time (which I didn't) I would have chosen something more comprehensive and germane, such as this.
