The G20, human health and sustainability: An interview with Jeffrey D Sachs

Colin D. Butler, Peter W. Tait

Research output: Contribution to journalLetter

Abstract

TO THE EDITOR: Pitney has strongly rebutted the views of Sachs (on development) and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (on climate science).1While we agree that free speech is vital, we also assert that science, however flawed, is preferable to dogma and opinion, whether held and expressed by followers of Galen, any religion, or a master under whose tutelage someone studied long ago.
