April 24th 1980 – “Carbon Dioxide and Climate Research Conference”

“DH Slade, Director of the US Department of Energy’s Carbon Dioxide and Climate Division, who stated in his introductory remarks to the participants in the Carbon Dioxide and Climate Research Program Conference held in Washington DC on April 24-5, 1980: “I think it would be very remarkable indeed if today’s results in the general circulation model community were shown to be fundamentally incorrect at some future time.”

The author I’m quoting, (Idso, 1982:52) found this to be an unreasonable statement. And may still do. Such people exist.

As ever, see the disclaimers, help the project and comments policy.
