And no, this is not denialist speak, just one scientist who recognizes that our climate models are not designed to tell me in SC what risks – if any – climate change may pose for me. For we need to recognize that for some locations, climate change may well be beneficial overall; for others, it is likely to have both positive and negative aspects. Climate will certainly change, but it’s the weather that will bite us in the butt – or not. And all weather is local.
