The new head of the Environmental Protection Agency is a level headed guy who brings calm and reason to the ongoing cage fight about Global Warming/Climate Change. Instead of choosing a side or adopting a political stance he favors a scientific approach, suggesting a challenge in the pursuit of truth:
…Pruitt said he supported a “red team-blue team” set up to test climate science. Pruitt was inspired by an op-ed by theoretical physicist Steven Koonin, but others have been pushing this idea as well.
“If truth is what we are all after, why would any scientific organization object to an independent look at the claims of the climate establishment?” climate scientist John Christy said.
Christy has testified on the value of “red teams” for climate science many times in the past decade. This time, however, environmentalists and “consensus” scientists are worried Congress will take him seriously.
Red teams would challenge blue teams on global warming hypotheses on “what do we know, what don’t we know, and what risk does it pose to health, the United States, and the world,” Pruitt told Breitbart.
Consensus supporters are four square against the idea of course. But if they are so certain in their findings what are they afraid will happen?
If Congress won’t authorize this common sense approach to this issue there should be nothing to stop “deniers” in the science field from taking on the challenge themselves. They don’t need lefty publications to peer review…thy can publish the results of the challenge independently.
