Climate Change 101

Here’s a must read, or at least must forward, article on climate change from the New York Times: A Scientist, His Work and a Climate Reckoning. Basically it’s a long review of what we know about climate change, how long we’ve known it, and what we can do about it at this point. It also covers the way that climate change deniers work to undermine things that are generally accepted basic scientific facts. The thing that really stood out to me is that the basic mechanism of climate change and the expected results have been well known since the 1960s. Deniers like to say that in the 70’s alarmists worried about global cooling, but the truth is that climate scientists have understood climate change perfectly well.

  1. “or at least must forward”

    …seriously?

  2. You may know everything in this article, or at least the important points, but you probably know some people who don’t.

    p>Here’s a paper I ran across today: GLOBAL SURFACE TEMPERATURE CHANGE.

    The scary part:

    We conclude that global temperature continued to rise rapidly in the past decade, despite large year-to-year fluctuations associated with the El Niño-La Niña cycle of tropical ocean temperature. Record high global temperature during the period with instrumental data was reached in 2010.

  4. Forwarded on FB. The usual NUH-UH people responded with the following link: http://www.globalwarminghysteria.com/ten-myths-of-global-warming/

    The Stupid is strong in this one.
