Numbers 01/24/2014 @ 10:51pm I checked with the National Academy of Science, NASA, and NOAA, and they are all under the impression that climate change is already happening and that man's emissions are 90% to blame. They also indicate that the extreme weather we have been seeing this last decade is going to get much worse, and the costs are going to be staggering. So, I dug a little further and read reports that indicate a global temperature rise of 7 F by 2050 is most likely, and ecological services that farmers depend on will be greatly diminished. Furthermore, studies show that the CO2 fertilizing effect is not nearly as large as the damage done to leaves in high heat. Just look at these drought that have become perpetual and the costs of these disasters on agriculture is accelerating. I find it quite disturbing to read comments like those from Michaels, who certainly does not represent the views of the vast majority of climate scientists. In fact, he might as well be screaming there's no fire when you can smell it and see it's glow, while firemen are yelling that its about to flash over. It's a disservice to your readers that need accurate climate information if they are to have any chance at all to get through this ever worsening mess. Thank you.
