Those who study in this subject area predicted the effects we now see.
Here endeth the lesson. Amen.
The warming of our planet and retention of heat has been going on for millions of years.
I'm sure most climate scientists would be fine with releasing an engineered virus that wipes out the majority of humanity to save the planet. Does that mean we should do it?
There are REAL scientists on both sides of this argument. There always have been. Most of the CO2 in the atmosphere is the result of the decay of living matter. The earth inhales and exhales atmospheric gases on a scale that dwarfs anything man could possibly contribute and, in fact, less than 5% of CO2 generation is human activity caused. CO2 levels have risen and fallen on the path of a sine wave through earth's history. The liberal academy is playing on the gullibility of the developed world's citizenry -- well read and prone to manipulation by "experts".
Dr. Mengele was a scientist.
and the trajectory may have been impacted by humans. That is, Superstorm Sandy may never have hit land were it not for human-caused climate change.------ may have been impacted, may never had hit........yep, sounds pretty scientific to me!
The author is not "a real" scientist either. He is an "associate professor" of mechanical engineering.
I am encouraged that the tenor of those who claim mankind's activities have no effect on the environment is changing ever so slightly. Before, it was no, it's not happening. Now, more and more, I'm hearing them say the focus should be on adopting to the changes.
Seems the author published on youtube a video condemning a scholar that he disagreed with only to republish it later after removing 10 minutes....why?
