This is from the OMG! REALLY? category!
A prominent climate scientist we all know, Dr. Andy Dessler from Texas A&M has apparently received so many intellectual beat-downs from the blogosphere, that he’s decided that if you can beat them, join them.
Here’s the quote,
In other words, I was not terribly worried about runaway climate change before this. After all, we know that the Earth’s had much higher CO2 in the past (and the temperature were correspondingly much higher), and the Earth did not turn into Venus.
This was in a response to a question posed to him by Eric Berger here. The reason for the question was because of a new study in the journal Science. Which states the climate sensitivity to CO2 is overblown.
Apparently, Andy Dessler is now a luke-warmer skeptic.
