2008 Patrick Michaels Interview in Cato Institute Newsletter

An interview with climatologist Patrick Michaels, the current Director of the Center for the Study of Science at the Cato Institute and past president of the American Association of State Climatologists. In the interview, Michaels diminishes carbon’s effect on global warming, dismisses rising global temperatures, and advocates for a “do nothing” public policy approach to address climate change.

In the interview, Michaels claims that in the 100 years since the date of publication of the newsletter, the global temperature has only risen 1 degree Celsius with peak warming taking place in 1998 due to El Nino “and a very active sun.” Michaels portrays warnings about rising seas and melting of Greenland ice as “lurid and scary scenarios with little or no justification.”
