A couple months ago, a young researcher named Emily Harari reached out to me about my views about the scientific consensus on climate change. She raised some interesting questions I hadn’t commented publicly on, so I agreed to do the interview if we could share it with my listeners.

This week’s Power Hour features that interview.

Some of the topics we cover are:

- The legitimate and illegitimate view of consensus

- How to learn the actual state of consensus

- The National Climate Assessment

- How consensus statements often misrepresent the state of consensus

- The role of the media in distorting science

- How transparent should consensus discussions be

- The obligation of scientists to stand up to false consensus statements
