World’s carbon dioxide emissions rising at alarming rate

Oktober 24, 2007 at 7:14 pm 4 komentar

“Carbon dioxide is rising at a much faster rate than before,” says study co-author Christopher Field, director of the Carnegie Institution’s Department of Global Ecology in California. “In the 1990s, CO2 emissions increased by about 1.3% per year. Since 2000, the growth rate has been 3.3% per year.” The researchers calculate that global carbon-dioxide emissions were 35% higher in 2006 than in 1990.

Canadell says that while the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change predicts “we will have temperature increases of 3.2 to 7.1 degrees by the end of the century, … we’re well on the way to the higher temperature increase if the emissions keep going up at this rate.”

    Few challenges facing America and the world are more urgent than combating climate change.The science is beyond dispute and the facts are clear.”
    Global warming is grossly overstated.


    With all due respect Mr. President, that is not true.

    We, the undersigned scientists, maintain that the case for alarm regarding climate change is grossly overstated. Surface temperature changes over the past century have been episodic and modest and there has been no net global warming for over a decade now.1,2 After controlling for population growth and property values, there has been no increase in damages from severe weather-related events.3 The computer models forecasting rapid temperature change abjectly fail to explain recent climate behavior.4 Mr. President, your characterization of the scientific facts regarding climate change and the degree of certainty informing the scientific debate is simply incorrect.

    Tulisan di atas adalah reaksi para cendekiawan A.S. terhadap pernyataan presidennya (B. Obama).
    Bagaimana reaksi cendekiawan Indonesia terhadap suatu pernyataan yang salah secara ilmiah ?
