What lies beneath, an article by David Spratt and Ian Dunlop takes a new look at climate change.
The article does not deliver new facts and figures, but instead provides a new perspective on the existential risks associated with anthropogenic global warming.
It is the critical overview of well-informed intellectuals who sit outside the climate-sciencecommunity which has developed over the last fiftyyears. All such expert communities are prone to what the French call deformation professionelle and the German betriebsblindheit.
Expressed in plain English, experts tend to establish a peer world-view which becomes ever more rigid and focussed. Yet the crucial insights regarding the issue in question may lurk at the fringes, as this report suggests. This is particularly true when the issue is the very survival of our civilisation, where conventional means of analysis may become useless.
