Here’s a great column on global warming. This issue rarely gets raised in the mainstream media. We just get snippits about how Bush pulled us out of the Kyoto accords because he loves big business and hates the environment.
Many scientists don’t believe the basic pretense that global warming is caused by man. MIT climatologist calls it a “religious belief” rather than sound science. Some would have you believe that the issue has been concluded and that the only holdouts are similar to members of the Flat-Eart Society.
I once pointed this out at a newspaper where I worked and was roundly derided as a fool.
I haven’t heard much about Michael Crichton’s new book, but it apparently takes on the myth. That’s awesome, perhaps it will force this issue into the mainstream.
