Complexity

with 3 comments

Icicles had formed on densely complex bare branches at Bull Creek District Park on February 5th.
At 10 in the morning, flash made the sky look like night was settling in.

I recommend Maarten Boudry’s article in Quillette about dealing with climate change. Boudry points out the ways that climate activists’ refusal to deviate from their orthodoxy has blocked moderate solutions to the problem. And while we’re on that subject, let me again recommend three books that take a similarly moderate stance:

False Alarm: How Climate Change Panic Costs Us Trillions, Hurts the Poor, and Fails to Fix the Planet, by Bjørn Lomborg. You can also watch a one-hour interview with him about climate change.

Unsettled: What Climate Science Tells Us, What It Doesn’t, and Why it Matters, by Steven E. Koonin. You can also read a December 2021 discussion he had on the subject.

Apocalypse Never: Why Environmental Alarmism Hurts Us All, by Michael Shellenberger. You can also read an article of his about the power of nuclear power to greatly reduce carbon emissions.
