  1. I don’t believe this is motivated by fear of opposing theories at all – those have pretty much all been aired and debated ad nauseum for the last 20 years. For instance, the sun is big, and it’s hot. Real scientists have noticed this, and figured it into their equations, don’t ya think?

    If you want the scientific scoop, go to realclimate.org.

  2. Mark:

    I have visited realclimate.org on a number of occasions and find much of the material there quite reasonable and compelling.

    I am not willing, however, to believe that our knowledge is complete. There is still room for research, discussion and debate. With the current political climate, there are few sources of funds for research that does not presuppose a conclusion about the impact of human CO2 emissions on the world’s climate.

    There is no doubt that we are putting a lot of CO2 into the atmosphere on an absolute scale – each large coal fired power plant, for example, produces about 45,000 tons of the stuff every single day. The question that arises for those of us that can do math is what is the relative portion of this CO2 compared to all other sources.

    The answer to that question can lead one to wonder about the accuracy of the scare tactics and the magnitude of our impact.
