Episode Summary

EDIT
Is Global Warming a Cause for Alarm?
AIRED:
Richard Lindzen discusses Is Global Warming a Cause For Alarm?Our planet has become warmer in recent decades, and there is a growing chorus claiming that, unless we curb production of greenhouse gases, the consequences will be disastrous. However, some still remain unconvinced that economy-wide carbon caps and similar regulatory measures will help the situation, the President among them.Does the cost of regulation outweigh the damage of inaction? Should the United States government take dramatic public policy steps and become a party to international treaties, or continue to wait and see? Should we brace for stronger hurricanes, invasions of tropical diseases, and significant increases in sea levels, or is the danger overstated?Professor Richard Lindzen steps into the fray to offer his view that irrational alarm may be clouding our judgment - Ford Hall Forummoreless
