How Hot Will the Greenhouse World Be?

Science magazine arrived in the mail with a special collection of articles on the most compelling puzzles and questions facing scientists today.

One of the 125 top science questions on page 100 was: How Hot Will the Greenhouse World Be? The answer is we do not know, much more work required on climate change models. For the past ten years, scientists have been trying to solve cloud sensitivity and the impact of aerosols on climate change. Problems that significantly increase uncertainty in current climate change models.

According to Science, we still do not know what is causing the warming, and how warm will it get. Yet legislators and the Governor are spending your tax dollars to solve a problem science cannot adequately define. Sounds like the kind of leadership we deserve for not demanding they abandon the use of junkscience in Sacramento.
