A few things that caught my eye this past week.
A range of interesting perspectives on the environment and climate change:
IAI News has an interview with Benny Peiser of the GWPF.
Footnote, which focuses on Cultural Climate, has a post How to Fix the Broken Debate on Climate Change.
Matt Ridley has an op-ed in the WSJ: The World’s Resources Aren’t Running Out.
Nigel Lawson of the GWPF has an extensive essay in StandPoint entitled Cool It.
Paul Kingsworth is interviewed in NYTimes: It’s the End of the World as We Know It . . . And He Feels Fine.
Daniel Sarewitz comments on Kingsworth an article at Slate: It’s the End of the World as We Prefer It, and I Feel Stupid. Quote of the week goes to Dan Sarewitz:
Indeed, with climate change being blamed for almost everything these days, the one phenomenon that seems to have escaped the notice of scientists, environmentalists and the media alike is that, perhaps above all, climate change is making us stupid.
National Geographic has a superb new series on Feeding 9 Billion.
And finally, I can’t resist including this one from Psychology Today: Need Better Ideas? Ask More Women.
