Climate Deniers September 21, 2017 by Staff

Hurricanes Harvey and Irma have stirred conversation over the role climate change played in the prevalence of hurricanes. There seems to be a forgone conclusion that "climate change" is the culprit. And if you disagree, you are a "climate denier." Dartmouth College Fellow Charles Wheelen, proposes a climate registry where every American “would be asked to sign '[their] name to one of two statements: 1. Yes, I believe that the risk of climate change is significant enough that we ought to take action now to reduce the possibility of future harm. 2. No, I do not believe that we should take any action now to prevent climate change.” Such a proposal serves no constructive purpose and would only deepen political rifts. And it doesn't really answer the science, which isn't done by majority opinion in the first place.
