The summary for policy makers, and on getting interviewed without noticing

A good use of blogging here by Nir Shaviv, clarifying both his perspective on climate and his reasoning.

And here, where humour is used to stress the dangerous waters we tread by affirming science by consensus, without open and full debate and without full consideration of alternative explanations, adjustments and policies. The rush to indict heretics and deniers only goes to confirm that so much around climate change is ideologically driven belief and not science at all.

And lest we think this only applies to environmentalism, another well known case of consensus continues to have wide repercussions. The same blog comments on the IPCC summary here and on the elephant in the climate change debate here.
