Climate Change: Scientists Vs Politicians and Media

The QuipperyClimate change is an urgent topic of discussion among politicians, journalists and celebrities… but what do scientists say about climate change? Does the data validate those who say humans are causing the earth to catastrophically warm? Richard Lindzen, an MIT atmospheric physicist and one of the world’s leading climatologists, summarizes the science behind climate change.

  1. I read wattsupwiththat [.] com to get the view from the skeptics side.

    Thanks for this.

    What I do know is that we have a small time-window of visibility for a lot of the raw information (atmospheric CO2 being an exception).

    Even such basic information as measuring temperature rise is problematic.

    And the planet is complex, so the predictive models are always playing catch up and re-think.

    Therefore, there is room for argument about the effect that man is having on global warming. So I am with Professor Lindzen on this.

    But there is a bigger issue. Those who say we should stop burning fossil fuels or raising cattle because ‘disaster looms’, tacitly makes the argument that doing them is OK so long as the consequence is that we do not not cause global warming, famine, total breakdown, etc.

    It’s a dangerous argument because what is not in doubt is that we are destroying the Earth with pollution.

    So I say don’t let arguments about global warming be a red herring to deflect from the fact that we should clean up the mess we are making, global warming or not.
