First Things: A Monthly Journal of Religion & Public Life;Aug/Sep2007, Issue 175, p17
The article discusses the politics of global warming. The author profiles several scientists and scientific studies that suggest that climate change may not be caused by carbon dioxide emissions over the last century. The author states that such information is often demonized as unscientific or politically influenced, yet solid, credentialed scientists are putting forth these views.
