A significant amount of people are not convinced about global warming. It's debatable as to how large a part of the population it is. But it is my belief that the amount of people who do not care what might happen are such a significant part of our population, that it will irrevocably affect the delicate balance of our global environment.
The problem is that the scientific evidence supposedly proving global warming is so complex that only a handful of scientists understand the intricacies the science behind main global warming.
In other words, I don't believe anything is wrong with the science or with the fact that global warming does exist, but there is no convincing language scientists use, that people understand; the science is so complex, who but the scientists can understand?
And so I think that scientists need to develop science for people we are not scientifically inclined. For example, let's say you're listening to the local weather report, and the weatherman starts speaking and uttering scientific weatherman terminology. We believe the weatherman because we know that they have been well-trained, but do we understand this terminology he is using? The weatherman's prediction was wrong, yet he held an argument the previous day that convinced us. This is the type of complex argument that scientists use to convinced us of the many tragedies, to include global warming.
Now when we go through elementary and high school we start learning science; but when we get out of school, most of us simply don't have the inclination to understand advanced science. What I suggest is that the scientists create a brand new science that will enable lay man to do his own experiments, analyze data given to him and come to his own conclusion. Do I think many people will be convinced that global warming is happening through this technique? Yes it will sway some opinions. And we will have the facts to understand and take action.
