Global Warming Conversation Changes
NBC 10 Philadelphia
The conversation is no longer solely about how to save the planet by cutting carbon emissions.

After years of losing the fight against rising global emissions of heat-trapping gases, governments around the world are emphasizing what a U.N. Foundation scientific report calls "managing the unavoidable.''

It's called adaptation and it's about as sexy but as necessary as insurance, experts say.

But in his 2013 book ``The Future,'' Gore writes bluntly: ``I was wrong.'' He talks about how coping with rising seas and temperatures is just as important as trying to prevent global warming by cutting emissions.

Like Gore, governmental officials across the globe aren't saying everyone should just give up on efforts to reduce pollution. They're saying that as they work on curbing carbon, they also have to deal with a reality that's already here.

Shooting down #climatechange myths: There is scientific consensus that planet's warming

Shooting down #climatechange myths: There is scientific consensus that planet's warming | You can Make a Difference! | Scoop.it
"The myth of widespread disagreement among climate scientists over whether global warming is happening has little to no basis in truth," says the report in the journal Nature Climate Change.

[excerpt]

A 2010 survey found that 90 percent of 3,146 earth scientists surveyed around the world believe average global temperatures have risen over the past two centuries, and 82 percent agreed that greenhouse gas emissions from human activity have been a significant driver of the sizzle.

Many other studies repeatedly demonstrate this same overwhelming consensus among researchers: There is no widespread scientific “debate” over the reality of global warming. Even one of the most outspoken scientific skeptics now agrees the planet has heated up.

And yet, about half of all Americans don’t buy it.

Influenced by what some call a “disinformation campaign” on the climate issue, 45 percent of Americans now believe that most scientists remain embroiled in a broad disagreement over the reality of global warming. Some 5 percent go further and think scientists actually deny climate change exists.

And these doubters -- whose assumptions about the state of climate science are mostly false -- are much less open to public policies that might reduce greenhouse gas production or mitigate global warming, according to new paper in the journal Nature Climate Change.

"Misunderstanding the extent of scientific agreement about climate change is important because it undermines people's certainty that climate change is happening, which in turn reduces their conviction that America should find ways to deal with the problem," said co-author Edward Maibach, director of the Center for Climate Change Communication at George Mason University, in this story about the project.
