Or so says Forbes, once again demonstrating that its staff is unable to be a credible source of information on science or medicine.
A week ago I made the case that humancaused climate change should stop being a political football and that both parties should simply accept it as a reality. One pretty pervasive argument against global warming that I didn’t address in that article was this one: that the belief in global warming is based on computer models that are inherently unreliable… How can the scientists convince skeptics a) there has been a non-random acceleration in the past 150 years and b) it is due to burning fossil fuels?
…Donald Wuebbles, the Harry E. Preble Professor of Atmospheric Science at the University of Illinois responds… [Concluding:]
“What we are experiencing is outside of anything humans have seen on our planet and the only explanation that makes any real sense is that it is due to human actions.”
Professor Wuebbles teaches the science of global warming at the University of Illinois and was a contributor to the report, “Global Climate Change Impacts in the United States.” As the University’s press release stated: “Extreme weather, drought, heavy rainfall and increasing temperatures are a fact of life in many parts of the U.S. as a result of human-induced climate change, researchers report today in a new assessment. These and other changes will continue and likely increase in intensity into the future, the scientists found.”
