Blowin’ in the Wind

by

Bret Stephens nails it. If it’s science, then the evidence should be compelling and unambiguous.  Consensus should build over time and dissenters should recognize the error of their previous position as continuing studies reinforce what has been observed.

Unfortunately, we all know that isn’t the case. It is right to be concerned about the effects of man’s action on the planet; particularly because it’s the only one we’ve got at the moment. The law of scarcity with respect to planets that can sustain human life that we have the technology to reach means that we must be cognizant of our footprints, carbon included; but this has moved far beyond any level of rational debate.

The true believers have said that there is no room for discussion.  I say we take them at their word and don’t talk to them about it until they come to their senses.
