Scientists Agree Human-induced Global Warming Is Real, Survey Says
July 11, 2013 – 10:32 am

A group of 3, 146 earth scientists surveyed around the world overwhelmingly agree that in the past 200-plus years, mean global temperatures have been rising, and that human activity is a significant contributing factor in changing mean global temperatures.

While the harsh winter pounding many areas of North America and Europe seemingly contradicts the fact that global warming continues unabated, a new survey finds consensus among scientists about the reality of climate change and its likely cause.

Peter Doran, University of Illinois at Chicago associate professor of earth and environmental sciences, along with former graduate student Maggie Kendall Zimmerman, conducted the survey late last year.

The findings appear January 19 in the publication Eos, Transactions, American Geophysical Union.

In trying to overcome criticism of earlier attempts to gauge the view of earth scientists on global warming and the human impact factor, Doran and Kendall Zimmerman sought the opinion of the most complete list of earth scientists they could find, contacting more than 10, 200 experts around the world listed in the 2007 edition of the American Geological Institute's Directory of Geoscience Departments.

I hang my clothes outside or around in my laundry room to preserve them and it also saves energy so I guess that is one small way I help out. I use "home remedies" for cleaning because they usually work better than most chemicals anyway, but I don't buy "green" products per say.…
