The current state of the “Climate Change” discussion is a mess; at least that’s my opinion.
Here are the problems:
- A scientific issue has somehow become a political issue
- Advocacy groups routinely claim almost any extreme weather event is caused by global warming (not true)
- Skeptics claim humans have nothing to do with the warming, or deny there is any warming (not true)
- American public isn’t too concerned even after a constant drumbeat of negative news related to CC (polls show this)
I have no interest in doing a long posting related to global warming/climate change, but I sure found a GREAT piece by Professor Cliff Mass today. I highly recommend you read it.
His main argument is this: It’s going to warm up quite a bit more, so we’d better adapt! I think it’s a realistic view, not a doomsday view. We’ve “made our bed” so now lets figure out how to live in a warmer world.
What do YOU think about his posting?
