Admiral Titley: How I answer Climate Skeptics

September 6, 2011

Admiral David Titley is Chief Oceanographer and Navigator of the US Navy, and a long time skeptic of climate change himself, who was finally compelled by the overwhelming weight of the evidence to acknowledge the science, and begin thinking about  changes the Navy must prepare for in a warming world.

If you haven’t seen my two longer uploads from Admiral Titley’s TED lecture last year, they are worthwhile, and worth spreading. Our military services must live in the real world, not the ideological world of denial – they cannot afford to ignore what science is telling us.

See additional Titley videos below.

Video one, in which the Admiral tells of his evolution from skeptic to urgent truthteller.

Video two, more details on Sea Level rise, among other impacts:

    Wow, that first video sums up what I have been feeling lately.


  2. I don’t know that this is necessarily the best post under which to advertise, but I thought your readers might be interested in my blog entry about Republican science deniers.

    I noticed a couple of weeks back that when it comes to climate and evolution, there was no comprehensive list of what the Republican 2012 candidates thought. So I prepared one, along with quotes, videos, sources, etc. I hope it’s interesting.

    Needless to say, their views on both climate and evolution are nearly all shocking. For the couple of exceptions there’s no indication whatever that the candidates have a single sane idea as to what to do about climate change.
