Climate war announced: the climatologists are fighting back!

Good stuff!

***

Today, the American Geophysical Union announced that more than 700 of its climate scientists, many who’ve doggedly avoided politics and the media chatter, are going public to take on climate change deniers. Separately, John Abraham of St. Thomas University in Minnesota is organizing a “rapid response team” that will venture into enemy territory — right-wing talk radio and TV shows. [Los Angeles Times]

Here’s climate scientist Scott Mandia on why it’s time to go on the offensive:

This group feels strongly that science and politics can’t be divorced and that we need to take bold measures to not only communicate science, but also to aggressively engage the denialists and politicians who attack climate science and its scientists. We’re taking the fight to them because we are … tired of taking the hits. The notion that truth will prevail is not working. The truth has been out there for two decades and nothing has changed.

Climate scientists say enough is enough and mobilize an army | Grist.
