Richard Tol

Citation de Richard Tol, professeur d’économie spécialisé dans les changements climatiques pour l’Université Sussex et ancien membre du GIEC:

« Consensus or near-consensus is not a scientific argument. Indeed, the heroes in the history of science are those who challenged the prevailing consensus and convincingly demonstrated that everyone else thought wrong. A claim of consensus serves a political purpose, rather than a scientific one. »
