We often hear strong opinions in the media about climate change. People cast themselves as "believers" or "sceptics" (although I prefer the term "deniers") -- often without a clear understanding of the evidence upon which scientists base their interpretations of how the climate is changing. As a scientist who is using ice core data to study climate change, I would like to explain this fundamental research technique that underlies our understanding of our modern climate. This is part of a larger body of research that provides a detailed context for understanding the climate changes that we are seeing and experiencing today.
The research in The Guardian headed as Ice cores: archives of past climate - How do ice cores provide glimpses into past climate just goes to show how bad things have become in climate science. There is PROOF that co2 FOLLOWS warming and yet this article is all about how CO2 drives climate, i.e. the "cause" has "become" the effect!!
Click source to read in FULL, and shame on The Guardian for supporting this view.
BTW: WHY IS IT OK TO SAY THE "D" WORD, when it is the "Climate Realists" who have the "Cause & Effect" the right way around?
