subject: Global warming in TIME magazine
perhaps of interest, there is a 30+ page article in this week's TIME
magazine on global warming. The title, splashed out over the cover
is "Be worried, be very worried".
For me the most disappointing statistic in the whole article was
this: in a poll (which I suspect was an American poll), 85% of
respondents now believe that global warming is happening, but, 64% of
respondents believe that scientists have "a lot of disgreement" about
global warming. Somewhat depressing that despite the best efforts of
IPCC and others, we scientists are still seen as a dithering,
chaotic, and disagreeing lot...
