to a 6-minute conversation about the conference and its speakers. He makes the interesting point that although he has recently converted to the ranks of “believers” in climate change, he feels odd using that term, because he says that once the scientific evidence is in, it makes no more sense to say that you are “believe” in global warming than that you believe in gravity. It’s just the way it is.

Someone should tell that to all the “skeptics” out there who try to spin it differently…
