Of note, the audience contained at least…
- One suspected creationist
- Two “environmentalism is eugenics” nutters
- One member of the Keplerian ellipse Jihad
- One suspected pro-eugenics nutter
I think only one person anyone actually asked a real question. The rest of the sane people only made statements.
If I had been in the Audience I would have asked the question “What is the worst case? What is the chance of a runaway greenhouse effect EG. The planet Venus”.
Its a shame that the farce that followed the panel debate is going to cast the issue in tiny shroud of aluminum foil.
