Global Warming Seminar With Nobel Laureates
Nobel Laureates Discuss Global Warming
Here are some quotes from a NYTimes article by Mark Landler which appeared October 11, 2007.
"The scientific findings are clear; climate is changing, and it is a response to human activities," said Mario Molina, a Mexican-American chemist who won the Nobel Prize in 1965 for being the first to posit that chlorofluorocarbons and similar chemicals could poke a hole in the ozone layer....
An Indian scientist, Dr. Rajendra Pachauri, who leads the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change...kicked things off with his panel's latest findings, which he said should end the debate about whether humans are making the planet dangerously warmer.
"People do raise this issue of what's happening with the science, and whether the science is on board. I think that argument really should be over."
"If you look at what's happened in the last year or so, it's been quite extraordinary," said Sir Nicholas Stern, a british economist who wrote a report last year on the potential costs of not confronting climate change.
