The Earth’s Climate

Do you wonder about “climate change” like I do?  We’ve got labels for people who believe this or that.  We see conflicting data published in scientific journals and the public press?

I haven’t drawn precise conclusions yet because I am not close enough to the science.   I am reading a book which to me provides a great background for the discussion on the earth, the changes which have happened on it over time and the current discussion about it’s climate and whether or not the climate is changing in a destructive way.   Maybe I did not say that right.  Is the climate change that may be occurring destructive or offensive to life on the planet?


Change Thinking on Climate Change

Blogger note: Stoknes (below) came up with 5 D’s which included “denial” of course. He did not explore all causal factors.  Part of the angst about human involvement in CC is known data.  The sun and the earth’s center are the two main sources of energy producing heat.  CO2 is vital to all plant life though labeled as pollutant. Lastly, CC as defined in the media is too big an issue for humanity to assume significant control over.

When Per Espen Stoknes looked at polls going back to 1989 assessing the level of public concern about climate change in 39 different countries, he found a surprising pattern in the data.
