Are We Alone - Skeptic Check: Climate Clamor

Arctic ice is melting, atmospheric temperatures are climbing – yet climate change science is under attack. Detractors claim that researchers are manipulating data and hoodwinking the public. And the public is increasingly skeptical about the science.

Find out what’s behind the surge of climate change skepticism… what the IPCC really does… and why snowstorms don’t refute global warming.

Plus a health report on the world’s coral reefs and what we’ll miss if they disappear.

It’s Skeptic Check… but don’t take our word for it!

Guests:
  • Stephen Schneider – Climate scientist, Stanford University
  • Phil Chapman – Apollo 14 Mission Scientist, now a geophysicist and consultant on energy and astronautics
  • Simon Donner – Geographer at the University of British Columbia
  • Sheila Jasanoff – Professor of Science and Public Policy at Harvard University
