U.S. prestige falling as world has ‘pretty well given up’ on any American leadership facing climate change.
Nature’s Edge Notebook #23
Observation, Analysis, Reflection, New Questions
One of the world’s most widely known and respected senior scientists
tells ABC News that current denial about the basic daunting realities of
manmade global warming is “just foolishness.”
He also reports that the rest of the world has now “pretty well given
up” on its hope for U.S. leadership in dealing with global climate
His assessment reinforces our findings at the recent global climate
summit in Durban, South Africa, that the vigorous anti-climate science
movement in the United States has significantly damaged American
prestige among European leaders who are struggling to deal with the
daunting impacts of global warming.
