LearnOutLoud.com Review

This UCTV video presents the statistical evidence proving that Global Warming is a fact, not a fallacy. Dr. Oreskes speaks in a clear manner that makes the research pertaining to the topic understandable to the "average joe" and not only her scholarly peers. She presents the research of several respected researchers such as Gilbert Plass and Svante Arrhenius. Dr. Oreskes attempts to use facts to bring the nay-sayers into the light that global warming does exist.


Description

Polls show that between one-third and one-half of Americans still believe that there is "no solid" evidence of global warming, or that if warming is happening it can be attributed to natural variability. Others believe that scientists are still debating the point. Join scientist and renowned historian Naomi Oreskes as she describes her investigation into the reasons for such widespread mistrust and misunderstanding of scientific consensus and probes the history of organized campaigns designed to create public doubt and confusion about science.
