Nice comment by Pete Dunkelberg


I like this comment by Pete Dunkelberg over on a post at RealClimate very much:

“Communicate by starting with the bottom line.

  1. “It is really happening and we know why.
  2. “‘[U]ncertainty’ means the range in how bad it will get how soon. A look at the US West drought projection should convince anyone who isn’t just being stubborn that we must change our ways. How?
  3. Stop burning carbon and leave it in the ground. This calls for a new energy infrastructure. The economic side is done by stopping pro-carbon subsidies and shifting same to renewable energy.
  4. “The change will take decades even when we start trying hard. So we had better get going.
  5. “There is no planet B.”
