Freeman Dyson and Global Warming: The Danger of Cosmic Genius

In the range of his genius, Freeman Dyson is heir to Einstein—a
visionary who has reshaped thinking in fields from math to astrophysics
to medicine, and who has conceived nuclear-propelled spaceships designed
to transport human colonists to distant planets. And yet on the matter
of global warming he is, as an outspoken skeptic, dead wrong: wrong on
the facts, wrong on the science. How could someone as smart as Dyson be
so dumb about the environment? The answer lies in his almost religious
faith in the power of man and science to bring nature to heel.
