Dr. Steve Koonin: Three Debates–Three Wins

Dr. Steve Koonin debated three climate alarmists over a span of three days.

Three opponents, three wins.

Debating the resolution:
“Climate science compels us to make large and rapid reductions in greenhouse gas emissions.”

With energy prices skyrocketing, the energy grid becoming more unstable, and devastating hurricanes ravaging our coasts, the debate over climate change and energy policy has never been more relevant, or more contentious.

Steamboat Institute hosted three robust debates on these issues in 2022 at the University of Maryland (October 25th), University of Dallas (October 26th), and Oklahoma State University’s Hamm Institute for American Energy (October 27th).
