[It was] doggedly and thoroughly reported, without showing evidence of lines drawn, sides taken, and old arguments being rehashed."

"Hot Air" appeared in the January/February 2010 issue of the Columbia Journalism Review. In it Homans examines a curious fact: despite describing themselves as meteorologists, a surprising large number of TV weathermen don't believe in the scientific evidence for climate change.
