Global Warming


I have received a number of e-mail comments on global warming, some providing more links:

In any contentious issue there seems to be a number of strategies at play to sway opinion:

  • Play the facts: This approach credits or discredits the argument based on facts
  • Play the emotions: This approach credits or discredits the arguments based on emotional or political issues
  • Play credibility: This questions the credibility of those presenting in favour or against.

Sir David’s video would fall into the category of playing the facts; the post of the other day included links to a number of videos that fall into playing the emotions; the video above reporting a conspiracy by the Bush Administration would raise questions about the credibility of that group’s facts or position.

No one commented on my rant against hybrid vehicles.
