Bret Stephens unleashed a Category 6 hurricane on Twitter last week, when he penned a column for the New York Times espousing opinions on climate change that can best be described as...controversial. While acknowledging that human-caused global warming is a settled matter, Stephens argued that the risk climate change poses is not. As a Times push notification sent out to millions of subscribers on Friday summarized, “reasonable people can be skeptical about the dangers of climate change"....Kim Cobb, climate scientist at Georgia Tech University, added that for her, the firestorm Stephens’ column set off highlighted that “as scientists, we need to own more of the conversation about climate change.” Cobb is a professor in the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences.
