On this week’s interview, Paul talks to Bruce Bunker about the science of climate change. Bunker is a chemist who studied the issue at Sandia National Labs. His professional work led him to write the book “The Mythology of Global Warming: Climate Change Fiction vs. Scientific Facts.” Bunker takes a scientific approach to the issue of man-cause climate change and the idea that it will have serious, negative repercussions for the planet or for humanity.
The RGF’s expertise is not “science.” We don’t research or comment on the science of topics like climate change, but Bunker IS an expert and this is an important and timely interview given all the policy decisions being made in New Mexico and Washington on the assumption that climate change is an existential crisis.

The fossil fuels industry is really putting on the heat in New Mexico. Now I’ll not return to this again. Darn cracked pot.
Dr. Bunker takes thin slices of climate data and presents them as evidence. Two examples; he says that the earth is actually cooling according to the Milankovitch Cycle, but he does include the recent data that shows the rate of cooling has turned around and the earth is very quickly warming not in a 20,000 year cycle but in 150
Second, he claims that clean energy can’t succeed and will make people poorer but neglects to mention that Scotland, Norway, Costa Rica, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, and Uruguay are already there.
