Bloomberg Business’ post What’s Really Warming the World? is an easy to read article that breaks down several of the factors (natural and man-made) that contribute to global warming: Earth’s orbit, the sun, volcanos, deforestation, ozone, aerosols, and greenhouse gases.
My challenge to you is to practice what you learned in ‘How to: Figuring out Figures’ to look closely at the graphics presented.
What is the data saying?
Do you believe it is accurate?
What may be another way to effectively present the data?
Based on what you see there come back an let me know… What do you think is really warming the world?
