Global Warming: The Science, Politics and Philosophy

Keith Lockitch

Presented at: OCON 2008

Date: Jun 28, 2008

Decades of environmentalist activism have entrenched in the general public a widespread belief in global warming; it is now widely assumed to be a proven scientific fact that human activity is causing an unnatural, catastrophic warming of the earth that will have devastating consequences for human life. In this course, Dr. Lockitch examines the global warming phenomenon, including the scientific status of the theory, the demands for political action that are made on its basis, and the philosophical issues underlying the science and the politics.
