The matter of increased atmospheric carbon dioxide has even greater ramifications. Here we are dealing with the need for increased scientific knowledge to learn with greater accuracy how much carbon dioxide will actually accumulate in the atmosphere due to fossil fuel combustion and how much it will raise average global temperatures. We need to explore the implications of that temperature rise on our weather and climate and through it on agriculture, recreation, and many other aspects of life.
Hear the dire warnings of a leading climate scientist; visit an oil drillship in deep waters south of New Orleans; read a plea for a practical nuclear game plan; learn about bugs that make ethanol cheaply; find out why coal is a dirty secret.
