Question:
Do you think we are really having global warming?



Replies:
The latest evidence supports global warming, although many scientists continue to argue about it. The latest evidence comes from measuring the "greenhouse gasses" that have been trapped in very old microbubbles deep in the ice cap over Antarctica. These ice cores are pulled out of deep wells drilled into the ice cap. Sorry I do not have a reference for you; I learned about this at a colloquium earlier this year.
