Letter: Like the Flat Earth Society
Wow! I’m disappointed that the Monitor would publish Michael Sununu’s Aug. 24 column, “Beware climate catastrophe charlatans.”
Given the super-debunked nature of his arguments, especially those attacking forecasting models, this was equivalent to publishing a letter from the Flat Earth Society. Sununu is guilty of just what he accuses others: selling snake oil. For example, just because one can’t predict the temperature of any given January day, it doesn’t mean that one can’t predict that it will be warmer six months later. So it is with climate change: easy!
If this is an example of Sununu’s consulting firm’s ability to do strategic analysis, I hope that potential clients will reconsider.
