Seattle’s very own Discovery Institute is hosting a talk on global warming by a “scholar” from the right-wing Hudson Institute. And guess what? This scholar believesaccording to the press releasethat “global Warming is inevitable and it’s also natural.”
For years Americans have been told that human consumption of fossil fuels is the primary cause of global climate change. But what if this hypothesis is flawed or simplistic? What if human activity is not the primary cause of global warming? Hudson Institute agricultural economist Dennis Avery will present the other side of the climate change debate at Discovery Institute in Seattle on Tuesday, December 5, 2006 from 4:30 to 6 p.m…. Discovery Institute’s offices are located at 1511 Third Avenue Suite 808 in downtown Seattle. There is no cost to attend this event. To register, please contact Annelise Davis at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (206) 292-0401, ext. 153.
Yeah, what if the global warming hypothesis is flawed? What if we reduced our reliance on fossil fuels, developed alternative and clean sources of renewable energy, cleaned up our air, and cut back our carbon emissions all for nothing? Of course you could argue that the damage climate change will do to our world and our economy is so massive that we should err on the side of caution and side with the overwhelming majority of the science community on this one. And if it turns out they were all wrong and Avery and the creationists at the Discovery Institute were right? Well, then we’ll just have to live with the consequences of their error, I supposeyou know, cleaner air, cleaner water, less dependance on foreign oil. Won’t that be awful?
