Freeman Dyson on climate change

Posted by Henry Bauer on 2015/05/13

Freeman Dyson is an eminent, widely honored and respected  physicist. In the New York Times Book Review of 19 April 2015, he says this:

On climate science, I recommend “Cool It: The Skeptical Environmentalist’s Guide to Global Warming,” by Bjørn Lomborg. . . . Lomborg is an economist .  . . . [and skeptic] with understanding and respect for the beliefs . . . [he is] questioning. The reason why climate science is controversial is that it is both a science and a religion. Belief is strong, even when scientific evidence is weak.”
