Deep adaptation audio format!

The original Deep Adaptation paper has now been downloaded 110,000 times so to make it more accessible it is now available in as a podcast.

In other news, Scientists Warning have created this rather shorter video emphasising the most poignant ideas in Deep Adaptation.

If you are on Linkedin, you can join the Deep Adaptation group for news and solidarity on this subject.

  2. Hello Jem Bendell

    I posted your DA paper on FB and received a feedback comment:

    “I wish the paper was a little clearer on the specific IPCC criticism. Not because the IPCC shouldn’t be criticized, but because the criticism is laughably inaccurate. This paper says the IPCC models totally ignore albedo effect–something that has been in models for decades (at least since I was an undergraduate).

    Therefore for people actually paying attention to the details of climate change and models, it looks like the whole paper is built on a total lie.

    If the criticism contained were specific–say the degree of underestimation of albedo effect and why–there are a lot more people in my life who would be interested in reading and discussing it.”

    I have no idea whether his technical criticism of the IPCC models regarding albedo has any merit whatever.
    (Others slag the models for allegedly failing to account for pre-development GHG emissions from land and hence overestimate the net post-dev emissions.)

    In any case, the accelerating climate severity is self evident without any models whatever, and your paper is not hyper-dependent on the precision of the IPCC models so it would be easy to simply dismiss his histrionics…

    Do you have a technical response to his albedo allegation and/a clever retort to his trite dismissal ?
