As you may know, one of the favorite red herrings of many of those who do not believe that global warming exists and that humanity bears much blame and responsibility is to state that that global warming is not only still in serious debate among respected scientists (untrue), but that it is a myth perpetrated by Liberal environmentalists, probably to hurt free market capitalism, democracy, worship of 1 God and many other sinister ideas.
As I mentioned last week, the man behind this "myth" is a Christian and great scientist, Sir John Houghton. I would also like to mention Dr. Robert Corell of the American Meteorological Society, author of the seminal Arctic Climate Impact Assessment, which has dire predictions for the Arctic and our beloved polar bears (of course, drilling could take care of the Arctic long before global warming- AHHHH, I think I am starting to connect some dots).
Dr. Corell, subject of an excellent 60 Minutes profile on the dangers of warming to the arctic called Global Warning is no liberal activist. Corell has been studying global warming since 1987, when he was asked by his boss Ronald Reagan to look deeply into the issue. Corell is not interested in playing partisan politics or delving into Bush's environmental policies. He is simply a scientist who takes anti-global warmers seriously and looks at all sides of the issue. He is grateful to the anti-global wamers for making him a better researcher and scientist.
There are some excellent links on the 60 Minute site.
