I had one of my semi-annual global warming battles with Ira Flatow today. Ira hosts NPR’s Science Friday. Like the vast majority of Americans Ira believe’s there’s human induced global warming. Me, not so much.
The most interesting part was when Ira wrote, “Geoff, you’re a smart guy. What’s in it for you?”
He believes so strongly he can’t understand how anyone could not. I respect that though it puts me in a difficult position.
I’m not going to go into my reasons now. I have written about them on the blog before.
My life would be easier if I was a believer! All my non-meteorologist friends are global warming adherents. Faith doesn’t come to you just because it’s a desirable trait.
¹ – Let me be a groupie here for a second. These guys are real newspapermen. It’s a treat to sit in the same newsroom as them every day.
