New Essay by Rupert Darwall Highlights a Previous Assessment of Climate Science

The Competitive Enterprise Institute yesterday made available an essay by Rupert Darwall that explores the expressions of public certainty and private uncertainty by climate scientists at a small workshop organized by the American Physical Society (APS) in 2014. The essay extensively references the workshop transcript, which can be downloaded from the APS.

Scott Pruitt, the Administrator of the US EPA, has proposed that something like the workshop be carried out by a Federal Government agency in the form of a “red team/blue team” assessment of climate science. Darwall supports this. Readers can read both the essay and the transcript and reach their own conclusions. My only warning to readers is that the essay is 18 pages long and the transcript 573 pages.
