New Scientist's "Climate Change: A Guide for the Perplexed
The New Scientist.com has just published a guide to educate those of us who would like more detail about the myriad of processes leading to global warming and the scientific evidence that supports current theories. What makes it most fun is that it is set up to provide you with answers to all the nay-sayers and non-believers' arguments! The article includes 26 of the most common climate myths and misconceptions and to its credit, also includes links through to original research and reports as well as a guide to "assessing the evidence." This last portion will become more and more important as politics and money come to bear in the climate change machine, making sources questionable and reports exaggerated, distorted, and sensationalized. For the whole world to unite against man-made climate change and the humanitarian catastrophes that will follow it, we need to maintain scientific integrity and continue to seek out unadulterated and untainted truth.
Read on and convert the oblivious, the non-believers, and a few oil tycoons!
