ESRC's curator insight, December 17, 2014 3:57 AM

Artilce written by Bob Ward, Policy and Communications Director a the ESRC Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy (CCCEP)

Judit Urquijo's curator insight, January 10, 9:31 AM

Este artículo de Bob Ward, publicado en NewStatesman al calor de la COP20 de Lima de diciembre de 2014, alerta sobre el peligroso sesgo que adoptan algunos medios de comunicación a la hora de informar a sus lectores. El presente caso hace referencia a un artículo de Matt Ridley publicado por el diario The Times en el que, de forma, bastante patente, se abrazan las ideas del negacionismo en relación al cambio climático.


Es cierto que las constantes advertencias que el mundo científico viene efectuando desde hace más de 25 años con respecto al cambio climático pueden generar dudas o desconcierto. Con esto no estoy negando que haya un cambio climático (las evidencias están ahí), pero sí admito ciertas dudas en torno a cómo se está produciendo el mismo, a si los efectos que anuncian tienen un claro fundamento científico o son meras suposiciones extraídas de un algoritmo, al tiempo que nos queda o a si las medidas que se adopten serán suficientes. Por ejemplo, la mayor parte de los científicos defienden que para 2100 la temperatura mundial no debería aumentar más de 2ºC, lo cual desde ya supondría hacer tremendos ajustes desde el punto de vista energético.  ¿Esa barrera de 2ºC significa que si al final alcanzamos "tan solo" un aumento de 1,5º podemos cantar victoria? ¿Qué ocurrirá si se superan esos 2ºC? ¿Y si llegamos a los 4ºC que pronostican algunas fuentes?


La maraña de información que circula por internet no ayuda en absoluto a esclarecer estas cuestiones, puesto que según sea el perfil de la web o medio de comunicación, como ocurre en el caso del referido artículo de The Times, las lecturas e incluso los datos, varían. Como muestra, los datos que ha presentado recientemente la Japan Meteorological Agency sobre la temperatura registrada en 2014, y los que revela en su web el climatólogo Roy Spencer. De por medio, también resulta interesante echar un vistazo a la web Skeptical Science


Al final, lo único cierto es que no podemos dejar de seguir investigando puesto que aún desconocemos muchos aspectos sobre la ciencia del clima.
