The climate questions are painfully politicized and I think still under-researched. If you really look at the numbers, we're just simply not spending enough on the science to understand climate change. It's gotten a great deal better over the last ten years, certainly, but is still far from adequate. There's so much more that needs to be understood, and so many more scientists need to be out there doing the work. Currently we're not doing that sufficiently. Instead we argue about it and politicize it. I think that science is the tool we have to lean on to understand these things and to guide our political discussions more sensibly.
