Clima mundial: Mucho más complejo que medir gases de efecto invernadero y la huella de carbono

Wellington Wonsang Ureta
Resumen

Este artículo analiza la afirmación de que el 97% de los científicos climatólogos coinciden en que el ser humano es el principal impulsor del calentamiento global y el cambio climático con un importante contribuyente al aumento de las temperaturas. El estudio examina mitos comunes sobre el cambio climático, los argumentos estándar contra el cambio climático, y la perspectiva y soluciones ofrecidas por representantes de todos los lados del debate. Durante la investigación de este tema, se examinan fuentes primarias y secundarias analizando su contenido, incluyendo entrevistas y argumentos de profesionales encontrados dentro  de un amplio rango de fuentes que van desde defensores del cambio climático, negacionistas y catastrofistas del clima. Aunque la mayoría de los científicos del clima coinciden en que las actividades humanas contribuyen en algo al calentamiento global, muchos científicos y grupos de gran reputación cuestionan con razón este consenso y los datos propuestos. Entre estos prestigiosos profesionales se encuentran destacados académicos y personalidades empresariales, así como respetados Premios Nobel de la Paz y sus obras. La conclusión es que todas las perspectivas están apasionadas por su preocupación por el futuro y la supervivencia de la humanidad y de nuestro planeta.
