My friend Ryan's dad is a famous polar zoologist. Several years ago, I asked Ryan what his dad thought about “the whole global warming thing.”She goes on to give a detailed review well worth your time.
“Well, my dad's an optimist about global warming,” Ryan said.
I breathed an inward sigh of relief.
“He's not nearly as dark as a lot of his colleagues.”
I began to hope that the crisis had been exaggerated.
“My dad just thinks that global warming is going to kill off all the indigenous peoples and most of the wildlife in the arctic.”
