ClimatePolicy is a commentary that explores aspects of climate change that relate to our policy choices. Policy choices will likely serve the interests of society most effectively if they are grounded in the best available knowledge and understanding. Therefore, we will promote objective understanding of climate change related issues rather than specific policy options.

We welcome comments and seek a lively discussion (see comment policy).


Contributors express views independently and individually. The thoughts and opinions expressed by one do not necessarily reflect the views of all (or any) of the other contributors. Indeed, the breadth of the contributors views and perspectives is a key strength of ClimatePolicy’s commentary.


The thoughts and opinions expressed here are those of the individual contributors alone and do not necessarily reflect the views of their employers, the American Meteorological Society, its members, funding agencies, or staff.
