Quick Link: Is Climate Change Real? For the Thousandth Time, Yes
Climate Watch’s Craig Miller sat down with Jon Brooks, editor of KQED’s NewsFix blog, to go back to basics and review the evidence, once again, that shows the earth is warming, and what the likely effects of that will be.
“Polls say 97 percent of working climate scientists now see global warming as a serious risk” according to a recent article in the New York Times. But 42 percent of respondents in a March Gallup poll said the “seriousness of global warming” was “generally exaggerated.” And while 61 percent said the effects of global warming were “already happening” in 2007, that number has now dropped to 52 percent.
