I Would Note That One of the Barriers to "Acceptance" of Climate Science Is the Behavior of Climate Scientists

Another climate practitioner jets off the a glamorous city (Brussels) to deliver a paper that could have been presented over Skype.

Dr. Hayhoe lives in Lubbock, Texas, and works at Texas Tech University. It takes a fair amount of carbon to fly from west Texas to Europe.

Normally, I would not comment on a single, undoubtedly sincere, person flying to Europe. But, look at the topic of her presentation: Barriers to Public Acceptance of Climate Science, Impacts and Solutions. 

As Glenn Reynolds says, "I'll believe global warming is a crisis when the people telling me it is a crisis start acting like it is a crisis."

I don't understand why the people telling us to cut our carbon footprints don't understand that, at best, scurrying off to Copenhagen, Cancun, Bali (all locations of recent climate science meetings) seriously undercuts their austerity message. At worst, they are hypocrites.
