Article about how a libertarian journalist, who used to write about how the global warming crowd was wrong, eventually changed his mind.
He lays it all out very well. His original skepticism was based on inconsistencies in various measurements of global temperature over the last few decades. Ground measurements showed significant warming but satellite and balloon data showed less.
Over the last year those measurements have been converging. Apparently there were errors in the original satellite and balloon data that weren’t accounted for.
Ok, so now that pretty much everyone believes global warming is a real looming problem, how do we convince governments to take significant action? Unfortunately the governments of North America seem to think that making small superficial gestures is enough to placate the masses. I think it’s to the point where most of the population understands that their lifestyles will have to change, at least to some small extent.
