‘Funny Business’: Prof. Roger Pielke Jr. ridicules Bloomberg, Steyer & Paulson’s ‘Risky Business’ climate report:
Pielke Jr.: 'I had a look at Risky Business climate report. There's some funny business in there. Why am I not surprised?'
'Risky Business report claims that avg annual hurricane losses will increase by $7.3B in 15 years. Can anyone find scientific basis for this? That is a greater than 50% increase from today's annual avg hurricane losses, and is due just to climate change, no wealth effects.'
'There is no scientific basis for such claims -- Knutson et al. Emanuel, Crompton et al., Bender et al. all disagree.'
