William Teach knows what they mean by consensus
Once you’ve mentioned consensus, you’ve admitted this is not about science, but politics.
Scott Pruitt, the head of the Environmental Protection Agency, plans to convene a team of researchers to test the scientific premise of human-caused climate change, he told coal industry executives on Thursday.
Speaking at a board meeting of the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity, a lobbying group for coal companies and their industry allies, Mr. Pruitt said his staff had already begun preparations for a “red team-blue team” exercise to challenge mainstream climate science, according to two people who attended the meeting but were not authorized to speak about it publicly.
But what of the ever so settled science? What will become of that narrative if it is challenged? It will either stand on its own merits or fall to dust and ashes. The fact that the Cult of Climate Change is so unwilling to participate in open debate, is telling.
