Global Warming: A Blessing in Disguise

Marsh, Gerald E.
November 2009
USA Today Magazine;Nov2009, Vol. 138 Issue 2774, p10
The author claims that the rising carbon dioxide concentrations may allow humanity to avert a real climate disaster. He offers an overview of the distinct findings of the proposal signed by the U.S. Environmental and Protection Agency (EPA) administrator, under section 202(a) of the Clean Air Act. He explores the uncertainties in science despite the claims that the rising concentration of carbon dioxide is actually the cause of small temperature rise responsible for all the activity to restrict emissions of the gas.
