Infovore: Getting the most from the discourse of ideas

Someone recently pointed me to James Fallows's article in The Atlantic, Dirty Coal, Clean Future, noting "This is a very practical, realistic approach considering the world's need for fossil fuels and the super abundance of coal."

I wondered what others thought about Fallows' argument, so I did a Warming101 custom search for posts about this article; which brought up David Roberts's thought-provoking response at Grist, A question for James Fallows about coal and focus ...which was followed by Fallows' response, and Roberts' response to that.

Viola - a more well rounded understanding of the issue.
