Global Warming Alarmists

Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) is Happening:
We need to do something about it now

Many scientists, who firmly believe that global warming is anthropogenic or human-caused, are sounding the alarm about CO2 emissions and the devastating impact they can have on the world’s climate. The following web sites are sources of information on their position.

  1. Real Climate is a popular source for information on global warming from the pro side. See the biographies of Real Climate's contributors, including Michael Mann and Gavin Schmidt.

  2. The alarm about global warming has been most vigorously promoted by American politician Al Gore, whose film An Inconvenient Truth has been seen by millions around the world. However, it appears to be unavailable online, although it can be purchased at cduniverse.com.

  3. Al Gore: 15 ways to avert a climate crisis is another film featuring Gore, with advice on how we can respond to climate change.

  4. A film on global warming created by Ignitelearning.com entitled Turn Down the Heat was inspired by the Global Warming Solutions Act passed by California in 2006. Appropriate for use in Early to Middle Years Classes (Grades 3-9).

  5. "The Great Global Warming Swindle"? Shams & Lies (2007) links to sites that challenge claims made in The Great Global Warming Swindle (2007).

  6. The Climate Project, which is partially funded by Al Gore and his wife, seeks to "raise awareness of the urgency of the climate crisis" and "motivate individuals to become active participants in solving the climate crisis."

  7. The David Suzuki Foundation provides up-to-date information on AGW, especially under “Latest News” and “Solving Global Warming.”

  8. Global Warming: Early Warning Signs is good place for information on the position of Global Warming Alarmists. Go to "Global Warming Basics" and scroll donw to "What's New" for the latest updates. (Unfortunately the individual reports are undated. One has to check the bottom of the page to see when the site was last updated.)

  9. A 2 April 2007 article lists all the negative consequences of global warming predicted by the IPCC. It is essentially a report of conclusions drawn by the IPCC based on its analysis of data on climate change.

  10. For up-to-date information on climate change research and news stories, go to sciencedaily.com.





[1] Merchant does a good job of exposing propaganda techniques in The Great Global Warming Swindle (2007). Do a similar analysis of the CBC Fifth Estate film The Denial Machine at video.google.com. What can be learned from this exercise?
