Scared Scientists Fear Global Warming

September 10, 2014 — Leave a comment

Great example of how the spoken word and a photograph can still make a difference in this world. By making it personal photographer Nick Bowers along with Celine Faledam and Rachel Guest interviewed and photographed a group of scientists about climate change. If the conversations don’t scare the hell out of you nothing will.  The web site, http://scaredscientists.com piece was picked up on Huffington Post as well.

Please share this with your friends.

As one scientist put it:

“One thing people need to remember, is that scientists are the biggest skeptics on Earth. We’re constantly trying to disprove each other. This is the one thing we agree on. The evidence is endless.”

SHAUNA MURRAY Biological Scientist University of Technology Sydney, University of Tokyo, University of New South Wales FEAR: REACHING THE FOUR DEGREES OF WARMING  We've recorded all sorts of climate change shifts in multiple areas. However, the scientific process is consistent. Every single individual study that has been done, has gone through the same rigorous process, data collection, research analysis, and qualified peer review. At the moment, we've at least 10 000 different papers, completed over 20 years, each using different data sets, and they are all coming to the same climate change conclusions. We've a weight of evidence that the average person is simply not aware of - and this frightens me.  I'd like to think that we're not going to reach the projected four degrees of warming this century; because I can't even imagine what that would look like. 80 years is not that long, and unless we act soon, my seven year old daughter will probably have to live through that.
