An addition to the SOCAN ‘General Science and Climate Change‘ page by Alan Journet.
For some two and a half centuries we have all enjoyed the benefits of advancing mechanization and technology born of the invention of the steam engine and the subsequent industrial revolution. Although early warnings about the climate consequences of our burning fossil fuels were sounded some 200 years ago, warnings from scientists persisted through the latter years of the 20th Century. More recently, during the last three to five decades our understanding of the science of global warming and its climate consequences has grown to a point where denial is no longer sane. Denying climate science constitutes as much of a threat to humanity as denying the medical science regarding SARS-CoV-2, the COVID-19 virus.
