Yesterday’s Houston Chronicle had an article questioning the level of alarm over the dangers for global warming. The article quotes Kevin Vranes, a climate scientist at the University of Colorado, “Some of us are wondering if we have created a monster,” Vranes says.
Has the hype out stripped the science? Are the mainstream media companies pushing global warming as just another piece of meat to feed their vast marketing machine? Other prominent sources say no.
