Separating Global Warming Facts and Myths

“Even smart humans will hold weird opinions.”
~Michael Oppenheimer, one of the world’s foremost global warming experts and a member of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) which won the Nobel Prize.

I had a conversation with a friend who is a climate change denier. He loves Fox News and believes every lying word. There is no conversation with him. Not a stupid man, he just refuses to accept that it is happening and clings to the mantra that it is all about redistribution of wealth. Facts are facts and real science cannot be denied but some people will refuse the facts no matter what the evidence shows. Below is a foremost expert and he makes a case for science.

He is also working on a special report on climate extremes and disasters."
