Recently a scientist, Freeman Dyson, who challenged the current climate politics passed away. Here is an article about him including what some prominent US papers "qualified their descriptions to reinforce the ruling dogma.
[HERETICAL THOUGHTS ABOUT SCIENCE AND SOCIETY]...That job security, and his own long history in science and physics, allowed him to carve his own path on climate issues. In 2007, he published an essay at Edge.org that is perhaps even more relevant today than when it was published.
In this article there is a link to Freeman's essay (see above). I had a read, and again it notes it was 2007, which was kind of interesting considering the subjects and it is now 13 years later; not that I might agree with everything said, yet the fact that Dyson challenges while making some interesting observations and points, was refreshing - here is a very small snip in an otherwise longer essay:
Freeman Dyson said:We are lucky that we can be heretics today without any danger of being burned at the stake. But unfortunately I am an old heretic. Old heretics do not cut much ice. When you hear an old heretic talking, you can always say, “Too bad he has lost his marbles”, and pass on. What the world needs is young heretics. I am hoping that one or two of the people who read this piece may fill that role.
Another environmental danger that is even more poorly understood is the possible coming of a new ice-age. A new ice-age would mean the burial of half of North America and half of Europe under massive ice-sheets. We know that there is a natural cycle that has been operating for the last eight hundred thousand years. The length of the cycle is a hundred thousand years. In each hundred-thousand year period, there is an ice-age that lasts about ninety thousand years and a warm interglacial period that lasts about ten thousand years. We are at present in a warm period that began twelve thousand years ago, so the onset of the next ice-age is overdue. If human activities were not disturbing the climate, a new ice-age might already have begun. We do not know how to answer the most important question: do our human activities in general, and our burning of fossil fuels in particular, make the onset of the next ice-age more likely or less likely?
