|WILL THE BIG APPLE BE DROWNED?|
|"You know, Lulu, I'm still not satisfied! I've read what the eight organizations have to say! I've drawn conclusions about their reliability and consensus! And on that basis, I've come to a conclusion about the hypothesis of anthropogenic global warming! But I still feel uneasy! I still don't know what to believe! I wish we had some other way of looking at things! Another perspective!" |
|"I know what you mean, Lou! Well, you know, TIME seems to play an important role in the discussion of climate change. As we've seen, the IPCC and the EPA show graphs that illustrate climate change over the last hundred years or so!
But maybe we need to look at TIME in greater depth!
Geologists can provide that perspective! They specialize in looking at TIME! Let's see what their long-range look at things tells us!"
| AVERAGE TEMPERATURE OVER TIME|
What support and what questions do the 'Average Temperature Over Time' graphs raise with respect to the hypothesis of anthropogenic global warming?
|"So, Lou, what do you think?! Is the Big Apple facing a watery grave?!?"|
|"I guess it all depends...!"|
|"Depends on what?!!"|
- "On whether global warming is taking place!"
- "If it is taking place, what the results will be in terms of a rise in sea level!"
- "And if it is taking place, whether people are the cause - in which case maybe we can slow down, halt or reverse the warming - or at least seek other ways to protect the Big A.!!"
|"Well, now we've got some answers to those 'depends'! And we can talk about what we could or should do! Click on the red button to go to the Drowning the Big Apple Worksheet (DNY-1)!"|
|DROWNING THE BIG APPLE|
|"It's been quite an adventure, Lou!!"|
|"Yeh, right!! Now what do you say we go to the beach and get some swimming in, before the beach comes to us!? "|
