The Ninth International Conference on Permafrost is scheduled June 29 through July 3.I'm sure this is going to be great. My students and I visited with UAF scientists and PolarTrec via webchat on the June 18 IPY day. UAF has done careful measurements of arctic sub-surface temperatures for 20+ years. And some studies go back 50 years to the IGY.
All peer-reviewed scientific journals tell us the same thing:
1. Humans produce greenhouse gases.
2. Greenhouse gases have increased the planet's temperature.
3. Increased temperature is seriously effing things up.
Take a look for yourself. Go visit your own State University.
You'll find out that there is no scientific debate on global warming. And, perhaps, you'll decide that it is time for action.
