The land of the free and the home of the brave under Donald Trump has become a fearsome place for outsiders. When the first tear gas canister was fired towards refugees at the San Ysidro, CA, border crossing, the administration lost whatever remaining moral authority it had. The action could be construed unfavorably under the U.N.’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights, ratified seventy years ago, in 1948, and the photos of barefoot children in diapers running from tear gas will accompany Trump’s history, forever.
Perhaps one of the most important scientific-political debates occuring globally is the issue of climate change and global warming. Is man-made global warming a hoax? If not, what might be causing the warming? Greenhouse gasses?
In a Bayoubuzz.com Facbook live interview, publisher Stephen Sabludowsky discussed the issue with Dr. Peter L. Ward who has written a book titled, What Really Causes Global Warming? Greenhouse Gases or Ozone Depletion?.
As recently reported, President Donald Trump is using the cold snap in the US to cast doubt on climate change. He tweeted that “In the East it could be the COLDEST New Year's Eve on record. Perhaps we could use a little bit of that good old Global Warming that our Country, but not other countries was going to pay TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS to protect against. Bundle up.”
Is man-made global warming a hoax or does it have some science that in the day and age of super storms like Hurricane Harvey, the nation needs to consider?
The Republican Party of Louisiana has rejected a former Democrat who just recently converted to be a Republican to a long-term Republican, who has been vilified in the national media as claiming that global warming is a hoax. Both candidates have served in the Louisiana House of Representatives.
Climate change, Global warming
Always a heated subject.
Is the earth heating up or cooling? If it is heating up, is it a force of nature or is man contributing to it? If it is not heating up at all, or man is not contributing to it, is either claim, quite frankly, a scientific error or worse, a hoax?
This was a hot topic of debate this morning as conservative radio talk show host Jeff Crouere and I discussed the issue on WGSO Radio 990 AM.
