mt has an article up at And Then There’s Physics arguing that climate science should engage with the red team process and try to make lemonade out of those lemons.
Climate disruption is a problem, and there are those who seek to obscure that fact for selfish reasons. So they malign the science, even though the core of it is a triumph that should be celebrated.
I’m not under any misapprehension that the impetus for the “red team” isn’t very much under the influence of this malice. The revulsion of the climate community (“we’ve been red-teaming each other for decades!”) is therefore understandable.
I’d like to advocate that we resist this visceral response and embrace this as an opportunity.
