Global Warming Perspectives: Business, Government and Science Skeptics


Global warming is a complex problem that can only be solved by a worldwide effort involving individuals, businesses, and governments at all levels. Global warming affects everyone. Yet, our perspective on the issue—how we see it and how we choose to address it—may be very different from the views of people from other backgrounds, professions or communities around the world.

Global Warming: Politics, Government and the Courts
Governments play an important role in the effort to reduce global warming with public policies and tax incentives that help to promote constructive action by businesses and consumers, and through regulation that can prevent abuses that worsen the problem.

Business and industry are often cast as environmental villains, and while it is true that the business community produces more than its share of greenhouse gases and other pollutants, businesses also create many of the innovative technologies and strategies needed to address global warming and other serious environmental issues. Ultimately, businesses respond to the market, and the market is you and me. Global Warming and the Media
The environment has become a hot topic for the media, with global warming leading the list of subjects. One of the best examples is An Inconvenient Truth, which evolved from a slide show into a documentary film that won two Academy Awards. Global Warming: Science and Skepticism
Despite widespread scientific consensus about the reality and urgency of global warming and its anticipated effects, there are still people who swear that global warming is a hoax and others who argue that no scientific evidence exists. The arguments of most global warming skeptics are easy to refute if you know the facts. While there are some scientists who legitimately disagree with the majority of their colleagues about global warming, others are skeptics-for-hire, accepting money from companies or organizations that hire them to challenge the scientific consensus in order to create public uncertainty and stall political action that could slow global warming.
