The Climate Show Episode 11: a trillion tonnes of trouble

Posted on 18 April 2011 by John Cook

The Climate Show have released Episode 11. Instead of a special star guest, Gareth has included a number of short interviews with various speakers at the Climate Futures Forum (David Karoly, Robert Gifford and Erik Conway).

I discuss scientific consensus and go into the reasons why skeptic surveys like the OISM petition are so popular.
