Alejandro Frid chooses to land somewhere in between, trusting that science is correct about the causes of climate change, but that ancient knowledge could help correct the effects. 

Frid is an ecologist who spends a lot of time with the indigenous people of North America.  He offers up his thinking on how to take the best of modern and traditional knowledge, in the book Changing Tides: An Ecologist's Journey to Make Peace with the Anthropocene
