Writer Vinay Kolhatkar makes an important point about the Global Warming Creed:
Climate Change is the creed that claims that (a) there is global warming, (b) that warming is dangerous, (c) that it is manmade, (d) that it is catastrophic, (e) that it can be reversed by replacing a whole lot of fossil fuels with wind and solar (f) that such a replacement is feasible, (g) that, to boot, is an expense that an economy can bear, and, (h) that such replacement is the only avenue left, since geo-engineering solutions are destined to fail, because they are manmade as against a nature-worshiping withdrawal from fossil fuels.
You see, when you put it like that, there are 8 matters (a) to (h) that the climate creed has to defend. All eight, no exceptions—a single weakness in the chain and the climate creed falls flat.
A very high bar.
