Newsweek Global Warming

Newsweek kirjoittaa ilmastonmuutoksen "kieltäjien" rahoituksesta. Tiedeyhteisö on jakautunut kahtia. Toiset ovat sitä mieltä, että ihmisen aiheuttama ilmastonmuutos on tosiasia ja toiset ovat yhtä vahvasti toista mieltä. Sain vihjeen tästä Twitterin kautta.

Worse, there was now at least a 90 percent likelihood that the release of greenhouse gases from the burning of fossil fuels is causing longer droughts, more flood-causing downpours and worse heat waves, way up from earlier studies. Those who doubt the reality of human-caused climate change have spent decades disputing that.
