The head of the Australian government’s Bureau of Meteorology has criticized Cardinal George Pell of Sydney for his public statements indicating skepticism about man-made global warming.
“The cardinal has been misled,” said Greg Ayers. He insisted that the cardinal’s statements have been based on criticism of the global-warming hypothesis that is “simply not scientific.”

Prudence requires that we avoid the FALSE NEGATIVE of failing to mitigate a true problem, esp when lives are at stake. So even if the science isn't quite in on this (& studies reached 95% confidence re CC in 1995, & the sci has greatly strengthened since), we need to do the moral & prudent thing & mitigate....which also solves many other problems and saves money & helps the economy. It seems immoral to dissuade people from mitigating CC, even if one has personal doubts about it.
