Trump Adviser Peter Thiel Questions ‘Group Think’ of Restricting Carbon Emissions

Submitted by on March 8, 2017 – 2:18 pmNo Comment

by James Osborne (Fuel Fix)  Peter Thiel, the technology investor and adviser to President Donald Trump, questioned the global push towards restricting carbon emissions as “group think” while speaking Tuesday at the energy conference CERAWeek by IHS Markit.

“I’m not sure I’m an extreme skeptic of climate change but I have my doubts about the extreme ways that people try to push it through,” he said. “Even if climate change is quite as bad as people think it is, if we group think we’re more likely to misdiagnose the problem. Maybe it’s methane emissions, and the real problem is eating steak.”
