Heidi Cullen has published a scorching opinion piece in today’s NY Times about the consequences of climate change. I agree with her that it is hot and that future summers will be hot. I disagree with her about some of the “facts” she presents in her piece. Here is my cross-post presenting my analysis. The NY Times should create some “green jobs” by hiring somebody to engage in such fact checking for them.
Today, the NY Times has a more interesting piece on adaptation investment close to the Nisqually River in Washington state. I see some optimism concerning the benefits of investments being made today because of expectations of future challenges caused by climate change. Are we doomed?
