At the risk...

09/20/2017 11:53 AM

...of starting WW III on my favorite Engineering Blog, I wondered if anyone else saw this article in the Washington Post:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/energy-environment/wp/2017/09/18/new-climate-calculations-could-buy-the-earth-some-time-if-theyre-right/?utm_term=.010ad56c75d1&wpisrc=nl_az_most&wpmk=1

Then why post it here and start it?

Part of the controversy is the CAUSE of climate change. Man-made,or natural.

The outcome will not manifest itself until long after we are all dead anyway, so again, why post this at all, if not so see the ensuing war.

Also posting this subject anonymously is a cowardly way to start!

<...Man-made,or natural...> Is man unnatural or not? And does it make any difference either way?

Maybe truth is being uncovered. I don't know though, the writers of the report are going against the progressive/liberal/socialist scientific establishment, who want this to go away. It's not what they want to accede to.

It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
