We’ve been told the science is done. That global warming is caused by man, and it is time for man to react and stop it. We’ve been told, time and again, that opposition to green movements means you must want the global warming catastrophe to occur… that you want to kill the earth.
If it’s all science, and all decided, then what the heck is going on in Copenhagen? Leaked documents upsetting developing nations. Emails concerning ways of silencing stanch scientific dissent from, of all people, climatologists.
Wait… I know what it is. Politics.
And that’s why politics has no place in science. There are plenty of people continually pointing out problems with the current models of climate change, not the least of which is why is Mars going through planetary warming too, that has yet to be explained away with anything resembling ease. Instead it is a case of “most scientists.” (Most scientists, at one time, thought the idea that vaccines were a Really Bad Idea)
So who do you believe? I have to think the answer is somewhere in the middle. I’m not sold on the whole carbon footprint basis of global warming, but look at the deserts of China and tell me over-grazing doesn’t have a widespread impact. Or at the fish stocks off the Atlantic seaboard. Or find me an old growth forest in Europe.
So let’s look at the SCIENCE behind climate issues. And get away from the politics.
I must be dreaming. That’ll never happen.
