Penn State climate ‘ethicist’ Donald Brown runs afoul of his own criticism.
In the second installment of his effort to make climate skepticism unethical and immoral, Brown writes,
This entry first explains what is meant by the climate change disinformation campaign and then examines a number of specific tactics deployed by the climate science disinformation campaign. These tactics are… Reckless Disregard For The Truth…
Brown goes on to write,
The central claims of the climate change disinformation movement have been:
— There is no warming.
— Its not caused by humans.
— Reducing greenhouse gas emissions will cause more harm than good.
The first two assertions are themselves disinformation.
We’ve never heard a skeptic say there has been no warming. There certainly has been warming coming out of the Little Ice Age. While skeptics dispute the extent of the warming since then, no one doubts that there has been some.
Aside from the nonsensical nature of “no warming…not caused by humans,” the key skeptic contention is whether manmade greenhouse gases are having or will have a detectable or significant impact on climate. Alarmists offer no credible evidence to support their hypothesis that manmade greenhouse gases drive climate.
As Brown presumes to pontificate on climate, he must be deemed to be aware of these facts and has opted to ignore them in favor of disinformation.
Very ethical of you, Don.
