According to George Taylor, when one begins to examine climate science and politics, one awakens to the realization that there are essentially two types of climatologists: modelers (the simulators) and empiricists (the “data” people). These two camps examine data so differently that it is difficult to understand their views without knowing which method they use. This can drastically alter the information that is coming forth based on real or imagined / modeled data. Join us with George Taylor as we discuss the differences between the two camps, why they are so critical in understanding the data we receive from climatologists around the world, and why it is so important to separate apples and oranges in the context of the climate change debate.
