George Rebane: More clarification on climate change

In his Sept. 13 “Climate change is real and a threat”, Mr. Paul Berger took to task not only my views but also my credentials and career as a systems scientist and registered professional engineer in fields intimately involved in the study of climate dynamics.

Mr. Berger is a true believer in preventable global warming (PGW), and a layman in the sciences and technologies relevant to his strong beliefs. Subsequently he and other such laymen are totally off-base in their ability to assess people’s professional qualifications to evaluate the present state of the fomented hysteria surrounding the variously labeled “climate change”, “global warming”, “AGW”, … .

In an attempt to clarify, I have written an article on PGW that is a bit long for Other Voices. It responds to concerned folks like Mr. Berger who must necessarily obtain support for their beliefs through third-party reports about ‘consensus science’. My piece may be accessed by Googling “Preventable Global Warming is a Tricky Business” and “Rebane’s Ruminations.”
