Hey Ricochet! Help An Undergrad: Why Are You A Climate Change Skeptic?
I have a niece who is an undergraduate student at Rutgers University. Aside from offering her such intellectually stimulating fare as learning from Snooki and dodging bullets, there appears to be a professor at Rutgers who is interested in offering her something to learn.
My niece is an environmental studies major. Naturally I've had a few sleepless nights worrying about what the left might do to her fecund curiosity, not only by what they tell her, but by what they might withhold from her.
To my delight, her assignment this week is to ask "Climate Change Skeptics" why they are skeptical. I assume the assignment refers to "man-made climate change" since it is uncontroverted, even in Academia, that world climates went through many changes long before Henry Ford made his planet destroying machine masked as the Model T automobile.
On Thursday, her class will begin to discuss what the students found from interviewing skeptics. Rather than give her one man's view, I thought I'd enlist the services of the entire Ricochet noosphere on climate change skepticism, to give Rutgers a more complete image of it, posted right here to Al Gore's Internet.
I have my reservations about the assignment. I hope the challenges to claims of man-made climate change are presented in university classrooms by scientists who are skeptical, and not limited to opinions of lay people like me. But it's a start.
So post your best. There are young minds at stake!
