The ‘wonders’ of climate change

Do you ever wonder why many people of normal intelligence continue to question the science of climate change?

Do you ever wonder why many people of normal intelligence continue to question the science of climate change?

If you do, you need to watch Merchants of Doubt which is now available on Netflix.

Do you wonder who those people in the media are, who deny and profess to be experts on climate change?

Do you want to find out if they really are experts on climate (or anything else) and more importantly, learn what motivates them and where their money comes from?

Then you should look them up on the Desmog Blog Denier Data Base at www.desmogblog.com/global-warming-denier-database

Do you wonder what real scientists with above normal intelligence really think about climate change?

Then you must visit the NASA climate change website at http://climate.nasa.gov/

And you might wonder, what if all those real scientists are right, as they were about the earth being round, smoking causing cancer, acid rain, and ozone depletion etc.

Which could lead you to wonder what you can do about it? If so, The David Suzuki Foundation, 350.org, Sierra Club, Council of Canadians, local Green Community, Carbon Busters, Transition and stewardship groups, all offer hope and guidance and they all need your help. So stop wondering already! And don’t allow the fact that we are all part of the problem stand in the way of becoming part of the solution.
