Excerpt from the PDF
In writing this essay my intent is neither to prove nor disprove global warming per se (a term that is problematic, as I argued in an earlier essay, but is used here anyway because of its common usage). I do, however, believe that global warming is occurring, and would refer the reader to Bill Henderson’s recent essay for a thorough discussion of the relevant literature, graced with numerous links to important articles on the subject.
This essay has a “people,” rather than “climate science,” orientation, in that its focus is on (a) identifying ways that people are reacting to the phenomenon of global warming, (b) describing how they are reacting, and (c) then identifying the actions (if any) that are motivated by their reactions.
