I am somewhat skeptical about all the gloom and doom of Global Warming. I’m not saying the theories aren’t based in fact (we do know CO2 is a greehouse gas). It just seems as if the calculations are overdone.
I would feel better if Global Warming proponents mentioned the positive effects of their theory along with the doom. Isn’t that what imparital scientists do?
Just about all the operational meteorologists I know are skeptics. Nearly all the meteorologists who are cited as proponents are theoretical or research guys. Us day-to-day guys aren’t quick to jump on the multi-decadal forecast bandwagon as long as we’re having trouble getting Friday right on Monday.
Today I read an article which again puts the whole thing up in the air. I’m inclduing this link, but with the proviso that I can’t/won’t vouch for the author.
This new article says the Sun is getting warmer. We notice it from space probes and think we see evidence on other plants, like the shrinking polar ice cap on Mars.
Yes – on the face of it, the science sounds right. I just don’t know if the books are cooked.
It has become more and more difficult to fight the tide of Global Warming pronouncements. Not because there’s more science, because there are more an louder voices.
I’m curious how this article will fit into the discussion.
