I’m occasionally asked — like once a year — why BayBuzz doesn’t give ‘equal time’ to skeptics of global warming.
The answer is simple: for the same reason we wouldn’t devote paper and ink to those who fervently believe the earth is flat.
The empirical evidence — as in photography, video recordings, peer-reviewed scientific measurement — is overwhelming.
For example, take a look at this time-lapse video, which records the shrinkage of New Zealand’s own Franz Josef Glacier — about 900 metres over the past eight years.
At this point, there isn’t even much room for debate over how aggressively we (as in, all humans) must respond to the unfolding disaster … what Sir Jonathon Porritt calls a “civilisational issue” in his new book, Hope in Hell.
His conclusion: “The case for civil disobedience is now overwhelming.”
