The truth about climate change is being hidden from the public
Behind the locked doors of conference halls and in the pages of academic journals a fevered argument is under way. How much harm and damage from climate change should we risk? This website asks the really important question that no one else is asking - namely, who should get to decide how safe is safe enough.
The idea behind this blog is that the world is too complex, societies too diverse and our understanding of climate science too uncertain to be able to define a single dangerous limit to climate change.
I am not a climate sceptic. The only thing I am sceptical about is the claim that climate change won't become dangerous until the world has warmed by an average of two degrees centigrade.

How much climate change is too much?
Governments have decided on a two degree dangerous limit for climate change and claim they have done so on the basis of science. But scientists say deciding what counts as an acceptable level of risk is a choice to be made by society, not scientists. Therefore we need to begin a global conversation about how much warming is too much.
