How Climate Science Gets Distorted
Listen now
Description
On this week's Power Hour, Alex Epstein interviews economist Ross McKittrick, famous for debunking Michael Mann's once-ubiquitous "hockey stick," about how climate science gets distorted--so that what the public hears about climate science is a wild exaggeration of what most climate scientists actually believe.   McKittrick explains: - How the "hockey stick" became ubiquitous despite widespread concerns about its (in)validity. - The real track record of climate models. - Why climate economists are coming under attack for rejecting climate catastrophism. - Why climate catastrophists face a reckoning over the next 10 years. - What we can expect from the UN IPCC's upcoming AR 6. - Why we almost never discuss the benefits of fossil fuels, including their role in driving progress.
