Climate Change is Not a Crisis (Guest: Anthony Watts)

July 3, 2019

Anthony Watts says the climate is changing but, as people will learn at The Heartland Institute's 13th International Conference on Climate Change, there is no crisis -- indeed, things are getting better.

When meteorologist and Senior Fellow with The Heartland Institute Anthony Watts started studying climate change, he began to discover that U.S. temperature data sets can't be trusted in part because the recording stations have been badly compromised. Watts says while it is true the climate is changing, there is no crisis. Rather, humans do better under warmer conditions and the modest warming we've experienced and may experience in the future is reducing disease, increasing food production, and producing a greener earth.
