My favorite quote is Stone's, "The problem is that by inflating the gravity of the danger one can "justify" almost anything."

As much as I disagree with Stone's reasons, his reasoning is superb. Anyone who read Posner's screed on global warming at the B-P Blog is sure to recognize that his attempts at balancing go out the window when there is a .1% chance of catastrophe.

It was a pleasure reading this discussion between these great thinkers. It reminds me of the great time, I had at the University of Chicago Law School. Stone´s historical reasoning persuades me though I love Posners briliant questioning.
