In this commentary, AIMS Board Chair John Risley writes that those contributing to the public policy debate on climate change need exercise to more transparency and more research into all possible sources. Risley addresses the fact that climate change is an extremely controversial topic, and because of the political correctness surrounding it, policymakers are depriving themselves of necessary research.
We do not know the extent to which man is responsible for climate change, and we have yet to do adequate research on the extent to which natural solar cycles may be over-riding man’s impact. Another under-researched area is the extent to which various activities contribute to, or generate, emissions.
In Mission Accomplished, Risley makes the point that more transparency is needed when it comes to research on climate change, so we can have a better understanding of where we need to focus remediation efforts and the billions of dollars we are preparing to spend.
