It’s been widely reported that the AAAS is attempting to deliver the news about climate in an organized way that matches with scientific ethics. Here’s the report, which is pretty much recommended reading for just about everybody.
(I also wish everybody would come to grips with the closing sections of the Copenhagen Diagnosis, but that’s old news.)
The AAAS report is accompanied by a fairly courageous stance that they are not going to let this drop until the press and the political sector show some semblance of realism. This is excellent news, that one shouldn’t sully with a “better late than never” sort of disgruntlement. They really are biting the hand that feeds them, and this is a very big deal.
Along with this push, a suite of excellent videos has been produced, with comments from Hayhoe, Alley, and other demonstrably non-left-leaning scientists.
Everyone has their own voice, but there is a concerted effort to get beyond the word “belief”. This is an interesting strategy, and one which I for one
believe, er, agree, is appropriate and justified.
