ARTICLE EXCERPT: I’d like to respond to State Sen. Verdell Jackson’s recent thoughts on climate change (July 4 Beacon: "We Do Not Control the Climate").
1) Mr. Jackson asserts “there is no replicable (verify by reproduction) scientific evidence that human-caused carbon dioxide emissions cause climate change. It doesn't exist.” I don’t know whether he’s lying on purpose, or whether he simply has no clue about the science, but Mr. Jackson is 100 percent wrong. As the experts at the U.S. National Academy of Sciences have stated, “Climate change is occurring, is very likely caused primarily by the emission of greenhouse gases from human activities, and poses significant risks for a range of human and natural systems.” If you’d like to learn more about climate change, a good place to start is NASA’s website: http://climate.nasa.gov/evidence/
