Global Warming: What's Truth and What's Propaganda?

Global Warming: What's Truth and What's Propaganda?

In basic terms, global warming refers to a warming trend of the Earth's near-surface atmosphere and its oceans. Scientific study has shown that in the distant past global warming trends occurred due to natural influences; however, today, because climate change and rising sea levels have seen dramatic changes, and because human emissions of greenhouse gases have increased significantly over the past 100 years, scientists are much more concerned about global warming than ever. With the world's population continuing to grow, the demand for energy will only increase, which will continue to put a heavy demand on the Earth's natural resources. As a result, there's no way around global warming being a political issue, and, no pun intended, the debate about global warming continues to heat up. To remain objective it is key for individuals to know what is fact or fiction, which is the main theme of this program. This "interchange" introduces us to Stephen H. Schneider, Ph.D., who is an expert climatologist and Professor of Environmental Biology and Global Change at Stanford University; he co-edited the acclaimed book, Climate Change Policy: A Survey. Here he explains how individuals can determine what's truth and what's propaganda in the scientific wars regarding the environmental status of planet Earth. 00/08DE SCA 30 min.
