Davies says there’s a lot of confusing and conflicting information about climate change and that’s what he plans to address.”I don’t deal a lot with policy,” Davies says. “I try to just help people understand what is the science and what is the level of scientific consensus on this issue.”I think that has improved dramatically, internationally and nationally, in terms of starting to accept the risks that we are facing and the scale of the risks and the scale of the solutions. I think that unquestionably there has been progress.”Davies says unfortunately as serious as we thought things were three years ago there is evidence to suggest things have been progressing fast since then.
