Climate Change in Perspective
Climate anomalies, which can be selected to "prove" rising or falling thermometers, happen all over the globe. Picking changes that just match the current academic, governmental, and political "consensus" on climate change is not how authentic science is supposed to work.

But, it's no surprise that the consensus of scientists who are paid huge sums of money from government to find "the risk of human-induced climate change" (as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change puts it) find that humans are responsible for climate change. Thousands of the rest of us atmospheric scientists, who have no stake in the outcome, find the hypothesis that humans are responsible for long-term, global climate change to be a stretch at best.
Climate change expert speaking in Newton March 12 |
On Tuesday, March 12 at 7 p.m., the Skylands Sierra Club Group will welcome climate change expert Ellie Whitney, Ph.D. She will present a 15-minute TEDx talk by [snowboarder/philosopher] David ["Climate Nuremberg"] Roberts, “Climate Change Is Simple,” and a 45-minute slide presentation about “Putting a Price on Carbon,” followed by Q&A with the audience.

Whitney volunteers full-time for the Citizens Climate Lobby, a nonpartisan, nonprofit group dedicated to persuading Congress to enact effective climate legislation. She is frequently published in New Jersey media and gives frequent, well-attended talks about the threat of climate change.
Introducing Ellie Whitney
Ellie grew up in New York City and earned her bachelor’s degree at Harvard University and her doctorate in biology at Washington University, St. Louis. She lived in Tallahassee, Florida for 35 years until retirement, living in a solar home and driving an all-electric car.

After several wayward years spent snowboarding and getting an MA in philosophy (go griz), he woke up with nothing but a dissertation between him and an arid, cloistered life spent debating minutiae with the world’s other 12 Dewey scholars. So he bailed.
