I saw this op/ed article from the Telegraph earlier this week and found it quite interesting. It is essentially an indictment of scientist James Hansen and the Goddard Institute for Space Studies and their questionable methodology in measuring global warming over the past decades. Frankly, I am still holding out on the whole global warming thing. While I realize that this is not a popular opinion, I'm just not completely sold on the doomsday predictions, and articles like this one give me reason to hold on to this position.
Don't get me wrong, though: I believe all of the efforts going into cutting carbon emissions, creating more fuel efficient cars and getting off of our dependence on fossil fuels are all great things and should continue. I'm going to keep holding out, though...
