Understanding the Climate Debate: The Lost Middle Ground
Warren Meyer agrees that manmade warming from CO2 is real, but contends that its magnitude and effects are likely greatly exaggerated by climate activists. He believes that in trying to simplify climate science for a lay audience, the media has made a series of mistakes that have polarized the debate and obscured potential solutions.
Meyer writes for many publications including Forbes.com and has been writing on climate-related issues for over ten years. He is a frequent speaker on climate change issues, and has authored several books and videos on the topic. With a 30-year background in the modeling of complex dynamic systems, his main focus in his journalism has been trying to improve the portrayal of climate science to lay audiences.
Meyer holds an MBA (with high distinction as a Baker Scholar) from the Harvard Business School and a mechanical engineering degree magna cum laude from Princeton University. He has received numerous academic awards and is a member of the Phi Beta Kappa, Tau Beta Pi, and Sigma Xi honor societies. His research work at Princeton focused on the modeling and behavior of complex dynamic systems—particularly the prediction of feedback effects—work he has used since both in economic and climate modeling.
Warren is owner and president of Recreation Resource Management (RRM), a private operator of approximately 150 public parks, campgrounds, and recreation facilities in 11 states. Prior to RRM, Warren held a series of senior marketing and planning roles at AlliedSignal, Honeywell, and Emerson Electric. He also has run several Internet companies, including Avolo, Whitepages.com, and a division of Mercata.
