Dickey Director: ‘No Doubt’ About Warming

Human-caused global warming is an incontrovertible fact, Dickey Center director Kenneth Yalowitz said. “The scientific facts are no longer in doubt,” he wrote in the institute’s Crossroads newsletter. “Global warming is happening in the Arctic and northern regions and humans play a role.”

Yalowitz himself doesn’t seem too certain of the facts. He qualifies his firm opening statement with the note that, “I am not a scientist, but the evidence seems clear” (emphasis added).

Considerable doubt does, in fact, exist. Bjorn Lomborg, for example, challenges the alarmist view of global warming in his widely-regarded Skeptical Environmentalist.
