Burt Rutan, the noted aerospace engineer, is no climatologist, but has written an analysis of the subject concentrating on how well climatologists have analyzed the evidence-- or rather, how poor their scientific procedure is. Just because he's not a climatologist doesn't mean he can't make valid observations about the field.

Except his analysis was posted here, and it was nonsense.

CAGW alarmists have tried to dismiss the analysis of Bjørn Lomborg, too, on the basis that he's an economist and not a climatologist. But his "Are We Doing the Right Thing?" analysis still makes valid and significant points.

Agreed. I never understood the antipathy towards him.

As to whether AGW will be catastrophic, I would guess not, at least not as I would define catastrophic. Catastrophic to some individuals, sure, but a lack of global warming will also be catastrophic to some individuals. I wish I could be sure about it not being catastrophic to us as a species, though. In any case, it does look like it will be expensive, and I think switching to LFTRs or IFRs instead of coal, and reducing the oil used in transportation, will save money in the long run.


Deasil is the right way to go.
