    • Tom Peer, Watts Up With That?

    Dear YouTube, May I first say how pleased I am that climate misinformation videos on your platform will now carry informative links to official data sources correcting the lack of understanding and conspiracist ideation among the less scientifically educated of your viewers.

    • Date: 10/08/18
    • Mary Dejevsky, The Independent

    What I want to suggest is that, from a purely UK perspective, as well as for others in cooler climes, a warming of the atmosphere might not be such a bad thing.

    • Roger Pielke Jr., Issues in Science and Technology

    Fudged assumptions about the future are hampering efforts to deal with climate change in the present. It’s time to get real.

    • Mark Bonokoski, Toronto Sun

    Ottawa has no right to play dictator when it comes to environmental policy.
