On Experts and Global Warming - Global warming is an increasingly common subject in our political realm, and the opposing sides seem to be farther apart and more contentious than ever. In his article at NYTimes.com, “On Experts and Global Warming”, Gary Gutting argues that given the nature of the arguments this should no longer be the case. The use of experts as evidence for each side’s belief, he suggests, takes the argument out of the hands of “nonexperts” and places it within the climate scientists’ domain. While this is the example he uses, Gutting, a professor of philosophy at the University of Notre Dame, makes it clear that this isn’t the only forum where his idea applies....   [tags: Political Science]

Another thing that can be easily done to protect the environment is driving less or car pooling. When we do that we can reduce the amount of CO2 we release into the atmosphere. Since CO2 is a greenhouse gas, the more of it in the atmosphere, the more heat will become trapped inside.
