Re: Red Alert on Green Bulbs
Not according to those who are in a position to know.
You will find that most who self-identify as "skeptics" (and pretty
much all with scientific credentials) acknowledge that the Earth is
warming and sea levels rising -- they just say it's no big deal.
One non-scientist who is neveretheless often touted by the skeptics is
Bjorn Lomborg, who says in part:
This doesn92%t mean that global warming is not true. As we emit more
CO2, over time the temperature will moderately increase, causing the
sea to warm and expand somewhat. Thus, the sea-level rise is expected
to pick up again. This is what the United Nations climate panel is
telling us; the best models indicate a sea-level rise over this
century of 18 to 59 centimeters (7-24 inches), with the typical
estimate at 30 centimeters (one foot). This is not terrifying or even
particularly scary 96% 30 centimeters is how much the sea rose over the
last 150 years.
