Nobel Prize winning economist William D. Nordhaus is currently being attacked by climate alarmists, because the integrated model of the science and economics of climate policies he developed doesn’t support the energy policies they are pushing.

Nobel Prize winning economist William D. Nordhaus is currently being attacked by climate alarmists, because the integrated model of the science and economics of climate policies he developed doesn’t support the extremely rapid decarbonization of the economy they are pushing.

Alarmists’ assertions about prospective climate phenomena are driven by climate models that have predicted the past and present poorly, producing results and projections inconsistent with the evidence. "The proponents of the climate “crisis” attack on fossil fuels are driven by an imperative almost entirely ideological. That rather than any reliance on “science” explains why a dedicated scholar like Nordhaus finds himself under attack."
