Looks like the current Newsweek should be an interesting read. I read about it over on Green Options. They’re looking into the global warming deniers. You can read the article online, which saves needing to buy the magazine.
With a $10,000 reward for scientists willing to deny global warming, the people who don’t want it to exist are pretty serious about making it look bad. Never mind the chances that it’s a real problem. They’d rather keep earning their money without worrying about consequences.
I’ve said it before. Global warming or no, the environment needs better care. We’ve made progress in some ways through the years, and now have more rules protecting the environment from the most obvious of abuses. But global warming is one heck of a risk to take.
Let’s see… if we’re wrong about global warming and/or the causes, the worst that happens is we spend money cutting back on pollution for no reason.
At best, we give the human race a chance to survive in reasonable comfort. Hmm… that’s such a difficult choice, really. Your money or your life, potentially.
Go read the article. It’s always good to keep up on what the naesayers are trying to get people to believe.

Well said. I will have to check out that article!
I am a regular reader of your article. And I am very impress with your blog upon Global Warming. Now I am also write a blog upon effects and causes of Global Warming. This blog is collection of news & reviews like the study found that global warming since 1985 has been caused neither by an increase in solar radiation nor by a decrease in the flux of galactic cosmic rays. Some researchers had also suggested that the latter might influence global warming because the rays trigger cloud formation.
Thanks for the link to that article. Just wondering if those “deniers” ever feel the heat? Here in the tropics, the weather is getting warmer and stays warm longer than it was before.
I really don’t think they notice, or they dismiss it as being something not caused by man. They tend to take the idea that more carbon is released annually by volcanos than by humans to mean that what we do is insignificant, when it isn’t. X carbon dioxide released each year is more or less what the Earth is stable at and can cope with. 0.0001% more can be significant if it tilts the balance.
I wrote something similar to this on my blog after I saw the same article, but the deniers are basically acting out pf pure greed. Maybe fear, for having to sacrifice convenience for the sake of progress, but my cynical side tells me that this is all about profit, and reaping the biggest benefits before the world is gone.
People say that we’re a Christian nation. We’re not; we’re jsut a big country of nihilists. Nobody is dedicated to changing anything for future generations, everyone just wants to take whatever they can while they still can. The worst part is that I’m afraid this attitude will still go on until it’s too late.
