Professor Scott Denning at Colorado State University is an atmospheric scientist and climate expert. Professor Denning does an excellent job of taking complex subjects and breaking them down to explain the science in an easy to understand manner – no small feat!
I recently asked Prof. Denning to address some of the basics of The Greenhouse Effect and Global Warming.
I address this topic at some peril! In many ways, the job description for the TV “Weathercaster” is to simply be the nice friendly person that tells you what the high was, how much rain will fall and what to expect next weekend.
I have found that, especially in recent years, broaching the topic of GLOBAL WARMING can stir up deep emotions within viewers and can bring some rather rough responses via e-mail and Facebook.
