Is climate change actually causing a crisis, as many are saying? In the global warming debate, what is the actual “settled science” that most scientists agree on, and what exactly is being contested? And how will climate change factor into 2020? This is American Thought Leaders, and I’m Jan Jekielek. Today we sit down with Myron Ebell, the Director of Global Warming and International Environmental Policy at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, a non-profit think tank that promotes limited government, free enterprise, and individual liberty. We explore the climate change debate through his eyes, including the stark differences between climate change projection models and actual measurement data, the role of China in global greenhouse gas emissions, the Green New Deal, the political interests behind the push for wind and solar energy, and how this overall debate will impact 2020.
