The Weekend Wonk: Stephen Schneider from 1990

November 25, 2017

Treasure from Climate State. Stephen Schneider in 1990, presentation in Aspen – the climate debate and greenhouse science is well developed, and much like what we still discuss today.

First 5 minutes or so is intro.

Extremely interesting discussion of pre-economic explosion China, false balance in media, forest fires, methane and agriculture, science consensus, drought and hydrological change, greenhouse amplification, “loading the dice”, ¬†economic and social projections, and climate model projections for the future. (which means now)
Yeah, Schneider pretty much nailed it, 27 years ago.

He may have overestimated the ability of deniers to change in response to data.

Climate State has been doing an absolutely amazing job of providing a useful historical archive of important experts warning on climate issues through past decades.
