I found the following very helpful in my continuing efforts to understand global climate change.
Kerry Emanuel (whose influential scientific work we’ve discussed here previously) has written a particularly lucid and poignant popular article on climate change for the literary forum “Boston Review”. The article is entitled Phaeton’s Reins: The human hand in climate change. We thought it worth passing along.
I’m finding how people talk and think about climate change to be a good marker for distinguishing between real strategic thinkers and those who confuse gaming the system with strategy.
I would put the American Enterprise Institute into the gaming the system category based on this report of their encouraging scientists to write critical reviews of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s recent summary report.
