Panelists face off in climate debate – Curry: It is ‘futile’ to try and control the climate
Asked about solutions to climate change, Judith Curry, president and co-founder of the Climate Forecast Applications Network, said the cure might be worse than the disease. “We just have to learn to live with any climate we get, and to the extent, we can control it is probably futile,” Curry said. ...
Though organizers said the event was a conversation, not a debate, Patrick Moore, co-founder of Greenpeace, said he believed Mann and Titley painted him as dishonest, and he “took umbrage” with the portrayal. He agreed with Curry — there’s a lot of uncertainty surrounding climate change, and it’s good to disagree on issues. A consensus, he said, refers to the political and social world. “A consensus is not about how many people will jump off a bridge with you,” he said.
