Some sanity from the Globe and Mail

The Globe and Mail has an article by Thomas Homer-Dixon and Andrew Weaver on “responding to the sceptics” that can be read here. It is rather shorter than How to talk to a climate sceptic, having only 4 points.

This is the overview of their Q&A:

  1. “GLOBAL WARMING HAS STOPPED.”

    Nonsense.

  2. “RECENT WARMING IS MOSTLY DUE TO AN INCREASE IN THE AMOUNT OF RADIATION COMING FROM THE SUN.”

    Rubbish.

  3. “THE CLIMATE IS ALWAYS CHANGING.”

    Yes, but so what?

  4. “SCIENTIFIC UNCERTAINTY IS SO GREAT THAT WE CAN’T MAKE FIRM POLICY DECISIONS.”

    Wrong.

Of course they offer a lot more detail, which you can read here.

  1. Nice to hear about some intelligent reporting about AGW in the “MSM”. So often they play up the controversy to attract readers…

    Of course living in Toronto I also have to watch the National Post’s disgustingly dishonest B.S. on the same subject.
