Manpollo Project – climate change discussion should focus on risk management


The Manpollo Project is a site which takes a look at the climate change discussion from a new angle. Basically they’re suggesting that people stop debating the actual subject and start managing the risk (in the same way that insurance companies and gambling organisations do). It’s an intelligent suggestion and if you can spare the time to slog through the somewhat cutesy videos on the site you’ll learn a great deal about the whole subject.

My particular favourite is the credibility chart, which lays out the arguments according to the credibility of the commentators and their potential agendas. This video explains more. It’s all still a work in progress, but deserves to be taken seriously.

 We want to present the global climate change issue in a clear, concise, and unbiased manner. We want people to be able to hear both sides of the issue, gauge the credibility of those making specific claims, and make a decision about what to do about it for themselves. We want a full-disclosure site that provides information in a way that the everyday person can truly understand.

    There is no other side to climate change. It's real, it's factual, and any other conclusion is fantasy. So I guess you could compare fact versus fantasy, but that's unfair to fantasy, which is usually more fun than that.
