Michael Crichton On Global Warming

28 03 2007

In my view, our approach to global warming exemplifies everything that is wrong with our approach to the environment. We are basing our decisions on speculation, not evidence. Proponents are pressing their views with more PR than scientific data. Indeed, we have allowed the whole issue to be politicized: red vs blue, Republican vs Democrat. This is in my view absurd. Data aren’t political. Data are data. Politics leads you in the direction of a belief.  Data, if you follow them, lead you to truth.

The whole speech, which he made to the National Press Club, is called “Our Environmental Future.”
