Host: Heartland Institute. The truth has been murdered, and you are invited to the autopsy. Dr. Craig Loehle, a quantitative ecologist with 120 peer-reviewed publications, will dissect the victim. The autopsy shows that key assumptions underlying claims of impending climate doom are either untested or false. In fact, Earth’s climate 1,000 and 6,000 years ago was warmer than today. Earth’s atmosphere has not behaved as the alarmists’ computer models assume. Alternate explanations for recent climate patterns do exist. Overall, the alarmist thesis is poorly supported, barely rises to the level of working hypothesis, and is not a sound basis for public policy.
