Suggestions there is a debate about climate change offends
September 14, 2018 Robert McLean
The idea that there is a debate about climate change offends me. A debate suggests there is uncertainty; uncertainty, where there is none as the evidence pointing toward Earth’s disturbed climate system, is indisputable, humans, that’s you and I, have modified the weather envelope that assures us of the Goldilocks-like conditions (not too hot, not too cold) that have allowed us to thrive. We are locked in a weird conundrum and sadly it is the ideology and rhetoric of the business as usual brigade that is holding sway, at least here in Australia.
