Point Counterpoint

Point:  From Paul Price on Twitter, about a recent polemic from Mike Hulme that ATTP is going on about

Mike Hulme's parting words to me (after a talk in which he failed to acknowledge climate risk and I asked why): "the reason you and I disagree about climate change is that you care about future generations and I don't."  
Time wasters don't like the deadlines we need to care about. — Paul Price (@swimsure)

BOSWELL:
What I want to know is, what sermons afford the best specimen of English
pulpit eloquence.

JOHNSON:
We have no sermons addressed to the passions, that are good for anything;
if you mean that kind of eloquence.

A CLERGYMAN OVERHEARING THEM:
Were not Dodd’s sermons addressed to the passions?

JOHNSON TURNING TO CLERGYMAN:
They were nothing, Sir, be they addressed to what they may.
