Dana Nuccitelli: "I just depuffed the @NPR Judith Curry glorification"; suggests she believes in a "very possible [CO2-induced] climate catastrophe" that will affect all of us this century

Is climate change humanity's greatest-ever risk management failure? | Dana Nuccitelli | Environment |
Managing the risks posed by climate change is not a high priority for the public as a whole, despite the fact that a climate catastrophe this century is a very real possibility, and that such an event would have adverse impacts on all of us.
This isn't some slim one-in-a-million risk; we're looking at seriously damaging climate consequences in the most likely, business-as-usual scenario.
Yet in a recent interview with NPR, climate scientist Judith Curry, who has a reputation for exaggerating climate science uncertainties, claimed that based on those uncertainties,

"I can't say myself that [doing nothing] isn't the best solution."
Curry is essentially arguing that she's not convinced we should take action to avoid what she believes is a very possible climate catastrophe.
