From the comments:

FWIW, Taubes’ first book is the best on this whole fat stuff, if you can wade through it, and has many interesting facts and anecdotes as well (eg: guess who gave Ansel Keyes his first big boost … Al Gore–are you surprised?)

I read the book, but I’d forgotten that particular factoid until reminded.

So Al Gore has been integral to both of the biggest junk science scams of the past 100 years.  Pretty amazing.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
