Target For Tonight.
10 July 2016 | by rmax304823See all my reviews

It's a nicely joined documentary illustrating the recent and not-so-recent progress of global warming and tying it convincingly to carbon emissions.

But it's a sad program too, because the people most in need of this information are the least likely to watch a program like this. Somehow the notion of anthropogenic global warming has been politicized. It shouldn't ever have become a "liberal" position because it's no more partisan than the solar system or Ebola or the Black Plague.

It's sad too because I'm tempted to argue in favor of recognizing AGW, as almost all respectable scientific organizations have, including the American Meteorological Association. I visited the Columbia Ice Fields in Canada as a child in 1953 and again in 1988, and the edge of this miniglacier had retreated the length of about two football fields in that period. It's irritating to feel that an observation like that still needs to be brought up.

It's sad too that America in general is so far behind the curve on the acceptance of scientific evidence, that we seem to be shackled to a faith-based and political perspective. AGW isn't such a critical problem elsewhere, as nations finally bind together in an attempt to dampen the effect.

Nope. The ultimate problem has to do with psychology, not atmospheric physics. How can anyone deny AGW and natural selection, yet believe that inoculations lead to mental retardation? Finding the psychological solution would ease the way for the solution to the atmospheric problem.
