It should come as little suprise that Brown University is well-represented at the Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen this week and last. According to The Providence Journal, three students and the director of Brown’s Center for Environmental Studies are attending.
The students and their professor are writing for a University blog about the summit, where readers will encounter some perhaps new yet familiar-sounding Leftist lingo, such as “climate justice” and “carbon debt.” If these students are being taught to simply to shoehorn climate research into the familiar categories of progressive ideology, we have to wonder about the scholarly merits of the environmental science program at Brown.
Of course, this summit has been overshadowed somewhat by the recent scandal in which it was revealed that climate scientists in the United States and Great Britain have stifled dissenting viewpoints in their field. We hope the local delegation to Copenhagen doesn’t bring such attitudes back to Brown.
