From a recent article in the USA Today talking about the politics of climate change:
“The science doesn’t matter because the science isn’t the real issue,” Brulle adds. “It’s about politics and money.” All we have with climate change, he suggests, is politicians taking sides in an economic debate over whether we should spend money to address climate change, or not (with one side very strongly opposed), and hiding behind a smokescreen of debate about settled science to avoid making those issues clear.
Exactly! Which is why I’ve clearly laid out my position on the environment. The science part of the debate should be reserved for very few people who actually understand the climate research – it’s the public policy that matters. I will spend my time talking about the policy.
