Science over hysteria

Here is the summary of Prof Judith Curry's testimony to the Committee of Science, Space and Technology of the U.S House of Representatives on "The President's U.N. Climate Pledge."

Curry, to her great credit, is neither a true believer nor a "denier." She is a scientist and writes about what we know and what we don't know. This moves away from the land of "climate pledges" and a million other trendy postures and policies.

Scientists, as well as non-scientists, should know that human ingenuity has always triumphed over past doomsday forecasts. Scientists should never scuttle scepticism and should be wary of politicians making climate pledges. "Fatal conceit" is what the latter traffic in.
