It seems more and more, people are questioning the supposed consensus on climate change. Now we see some journalists asking questions too.
It is said that science is self correcting, politics, not so much, but it has been known to happen. Now when we have writers at major newspapers asking questions about why the climate hasn’t warmed in the past few years, one can hope that politics will start asking questions before we sell our productivity down the carbon rabbit hole.
Robert Bradley writes in to alert us of this quote of the week:
“For a long time now, science reporters have been confidently told the science is settled…. But I am confused [by recent developments]. Four years ago this all seemed like a fait accompli. Humans were unquestionably warming the climate and changing the planet forever through their emissions of carbon dioxide.”
– Eric Berger, Science Writer, Houston Chronicle, September 6, 2009 [SciGuy Blog]
