Mooney on hurricanes and climate change
Chris Mooney has a piece in the L.A. Times about the current hurricane season and the connection between hurricanes and climate change. It echoes the sensible line taken in Chris’ book. This is the crucial bit:
When it comes to the hurricane-global warming relationship, neither outright alarmism nor dismissive skepticism are warranted. Rather, taking the limited information that we have and making the most of it should lead to a stance of cautious, well-informed concern. Further research — or, perhaps, more mega-hurricanes — may seal the issue. But meanwhile, given how much we have at stake, we should already be moving to prepare and protect ourselves — even as we remain fully open to new evidence.
