Let’s take a different look at the issue of global warming, or better stated, climate change. First a few observations:
It is undeniable that coal and oil deposits underground had locked up vast amounts of carbon, and to support human activities they are being brought up and burned in enormous quantities, thus releasing the carbon into the atmosphere.
A review of the independent studies and articles done by climate scientists around the world shows that the great majority believe the evidence holds that climate change is real, already happening, and that it is caused by human activities. The trend line for global temperatures over the years is analogous to that of the stock market — there are down periods, but the line trends upward.
If predictions are correct regarding climate change, it could lead to a world-wide catastrophe.
What does each side gain from their stance? How do the believers benefit? The deniers? There is a direct economic link for the deniers (drill, baby, drill! Cheap energy!); for the believers, the benefit, if any, is pretty fuzzy (possible study grants?).
