Shikha Dalmia thinks so. The issue has been politicized to the point that the zealots on both sides have conflated science with ideology. They speak as if the question of whether significant global warming will happen (or not) depends on who wins the ideological debate. In the end, of course, the earth will warm (or not) regardless of who makes the best speeches. The probability, and the evidence, that it will are not insignificant. Under the circumstances it seems foolhardy to continue the uncontrolled dumping of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.
