I found both of the articles on global warming to be very interesting. I guess as far as my opinion I’m open-minded to the issue. It’s hard when there is so much varying information and scientific data on the topic. I do find agreement with Oreskes in that people need to be more aware of their actions and how we are affecting our environment. He has direct evidence that greenhouse gases are harming the environment. He uses the IPCC as direct evidence for his claims. He also says that the arguments against global warming are dissipating and untrue. I guess I do find it a little hard to know what to believe. Oreskes says that those that deny global warming are simply skeptics with little scientific knowledge to back up their claims. However, Lindzen also offers a large degree of scientific research to back his claims that global warming is over exaggerated. I guess I kind of think of it as a middle between these two claims. I think global warming, or at least detrimental factors on the environment are caused by humans and humans should be more aware of their actions. But at the same time, I’m hesitant to believe that such drastic events are going to appear soon in the near future.
