State of Duh?

Michael Crichton's talk at AEI televised today on C-Span was extremely disjointed. Other than the supposedly flawed "hockey stick" graph data accusation on tree rings? I didn't find the policy/scientist interface he criticised helped by the Bush administration as he apparently does. If anything it's much worse with this kind of false skepticism.

A mismanagement of Yellowstone analogy made on sense either. They did mismanage it but now have a hands off policy there. The results are remarkable. No prescription management activities of any kind are required, unlike the national forest mismanagement programs currently underway, so Crichton falls on his face badly on that note. Of course he was preaching to the choir at AEI anyway.
