Has Curry been living in an ivory-tower bubble?
Willis Eschenbach certainly thinks so. And he's not mincing words about it.
Because the truth is, climate science is one of the newest sciences. The truth is, we know little about the climate, we’ve only been studying it intensely for a couple decades. The truth is, we can’t project the climate of the next decade, much less that of the next century. The truth is, we have no general theory of climate. The truth is, we don’t know if an average temperature rise of a couple degrees will be a net benefit or a net loss. The truth is, all of us are human, and our knowledge of the climate is in its infancy. And I don’t appreciate being lectured by infants. I don’t appreciate being told that I should be put in the dock in a Nuremberg style trial for disagreeing with infants. You want to restore trust? Come down off your pedestals, forsake your ivory towers, and admit your limitations.[emphasis mine]
Now before you say "What'choo talkin' 'bout, Willis," do read the whole thing -- a priceless smack down indeed.
PS. Progressives just hate it when you use Alinsky's Rules for Radicals against them.
