Skepticism akin to threatening the life of ‘a little girl’: NYT Profiles ‘Outlier’ Dr. John Christy: ‘Skeptic of Climate Change Finds Himself a Target of Suspicion’ – Portrays him as roadblock to ‘staving off potentially catastrophic warming’

-

John Christy, a professor of atmospheric science at the University of Alabama here, says he remembers the morning he spotted a well-known colleague at a gathering of climate experts.

“I walked over and held out my hand to greet him,” Dr. Christy recalled. “He looked me in the eye and he said, ‘No.’ I said, ‘Come on, shake hands with me.’ And he said, ‘No.’  ”

Dr. Christy is an outlier on what the vast majority of his colleagues consider to be a matter of consensus: that global warming is both settled science and a dire threat. He regards it as neither.
