The 99.99% Doctrine

2 comments February 2nd, 2011at 11:32am Posted by Eli

Why is it that the Cheney Doctrine dictates that “If there‚Äôs a 1% chance that Pakistani scientists are helping al-Qaeda build or develop a nuclear weapon, we have to treat it as a certainty in terms of our response”, yet we need a 99.99% level of certainty that climate change will completely disrupt the world as we know it before we can take even the most modest and incremental steps to reduce carbon emissions?
