"Why are you so scared about global warming?"

Why do you believe things are as bad as they are? Why is it you feel that the world is coming to an end unless we do something?

Unless you are an actual, God-love-you, bona fide climatologist, it is difficult to see how anybody could raise an interest in the state of the climate given the actual, direct evidence we have for dangerous man-made global warming. But it’s clear our National Nervousness Index is peaking. Why is that? Chances are, that if you are worked up, it is because you are mistaken. If you are like most people—and most people are—then you have inappropriately thought that certain evidence implied the truth of dangerous man-made global warming (or AGW, for short) whereas it actually does not. You are therefore unnecessarily worried. -- A Citizen’s Guide to Global Warming Evidence | William M. Briggs

Your Say

Global warming in the northern climes means global cooling in the southern hemisphere. It happens all the time.

There is no global warming or cooling anymore, only Climate Change. Covers it all neatly.
