Gates vs Mann; one of them is right

Bill Gates says one thing about climate change, Michael E Mann, the world-leading climatologist, says something different. The billionaire and expert present solutions to climate change; one of them is right, is the other wrong though, and who do we believe?

We live in the cult of the billionaire. Who do you trust, the expert or the billionaire? "We have had enough of experts," said the British politician Michael Gove, and those sentiments seem to sum up the attitudes of the time. Maybe it was the failure of economists to predict the 2008 crash that set the tone, but the author of this article would like to cite his father speaking many decades ago: "Beware of experts," he used to say. This aversion to expertise is not new; it is merely newly respectable.
