Outdoor education: Why it matters

-A A +A
By The Staff

In an earlier Monitor, Chick Keller lamented that an awesome pushback had been mounted against anthropogenic global warming (AGW) triggered by the revelation that extensively manipulated datasets had compromised fundamental temperature inputs to the climate modeling supporting the man-caused global warming argument.

Most scientists agree that since 1850, the beginning of the IPCC temperature reconstructions and the end of the Little Ice Age, the Earth has been warming. The objective of an enormous literature is to establish how warm. What is far from clear is that any warming is man-made and that man’s activities can be modified in such a way that the trend could be reversed.

The critical missing element in the argument is the compelling evidence that fossil fuels are the culprits and that increasing atmospheric CO2 is the cause. Even the intended consequences of the proposed remedy are severe enough to insist on convincing evidence of AGW!

If the cause of moderate warming indeed turns out to be other natural influences, curtailing CO2 emissions is not likely to affect temperature and the economic and cultural upheaval required to reduce emissions will cause unnecessary hardship.
