A chunk of Antarctic ice 9 times the size of Manhattan collapsed into the ocean on Tuesday. Scientists have reportedly attributed the collapse to the effects of global warming and say the rest of the ice shelf, which is roughly the size of the state of Connecticut, is currently only supported by a thin beam of ice and is at risk to collapse as well.

So, in light of our recent discussion, I was contacted by John Cook of Skeptical Science. Skeptical Science is a website entirely devoted to ‘examining the science of global warming skepticism’ and is a very interesting and thorough resource. No matter what your position on this issue, I would encourage you to check it out and as with every issue, educate yourself as much as possible before you formulate an opinion.



Scientific Consensus?

Aloha,

Prompted by a recent comment that was made based on the opinion that many scientists believe global warming is a natural phenomenon, rather than a man-made problem, I tried to find evidence of such scientists. I came across the Pew Center on Global Climate Change in Virginia, the Marian Koshland Science Museum of the National Academy of Sciences in Washington DC, and many other credible scientific sources that support the human influence hypothesis when I searched for “global warming and science.” I will admit, I did find one scientist who disagrees when I searched for “global warming and natural” – which, to be fair, is a much more ‘leading’ search prompt.

In any case, we at GWI are not denying there are people in disagreement, we are simply trying to back up our position with the plentiful scientific evidence that’s out there. Please feel free to leave comments or to contact us via email with any supporting or refuting comments, complaints, and opinions. Public education is a noble cause, whether through a grassroots effort such as this, or through first-hand research and reporting. We’re just trying to do our part, and we hope you’ll do the same.
