Here’s an interesting column from the Denver Post on the global warming debate — which really isn’t a debate on college campuses:

Another highly respected climatologist, Roger Pielke Sr. at the University of Colorado, is also skeptical.

Pielke contends there isn’t enough intellectual diversity in the debate. He claims a few vocal individuals are quoted “over and over” again, when in fact there are a variety of opinions.

I questioned global warming on campus last year and you’d have thought I questioned the moon landing.

Nobody’s saying it’s not getting warmer — we skeptics just wonder how we’ve concluded with such certainty that it’s manmade emissions causing the warming. After all, the Earth’s warmed up in the past because of natural causes.

Post hoc ergo propter hoc.
