Prize-winning climate communicator Gavin Schmidt: He’s *totally* open to discussing climate science, unless the discussion involves someone who disagrees with him

Twitter / ClimateOfGavin… In my own advocacy I try and match up to that ideal. I advocate for a higher level of conversation about the science and greater awarenessTwitter / ClimateOfGavinA couple of thoughts post google hangout… 1) advocacy for an opening up of dialogue is a totally valid positionFlashback: Don’t miss this “completely absurd ballet” as award-winning climate communicator Gavin Schmidt is afraid to discuss global warming on-camera with Roy Spencer[Bishop Hill] unfortunately Gavin is refusing to appear alongside Roy. Roy is therefore forced to pirouette off, stage left. Gavin enters and performs his pas de deux with Stossel, with much rolling of the eyes and bras croisé. After Gavin has pliéd and demi detournéd a little, Roy is invited to respond, but Gavin is still playing hard to get: he in turn makes a grand battement and flounces off into the wings, to be replaced by a slight amused looking Roy.
