Session J: AAPT Tutorial on Anthropogenic Global Warming - Data Supporting Anthropogenic Global Warming: Balancing Ecology with Economics

Paul H. Carr, University of Massachusetts - Lowell

Description

Data will be presented supporting the ecological APS National Policy Statement: “Emissions of greenhouse gases from human activities are changing the atmosphere in ways that affect the Earth’s climate. The evidence is incontrovertible. Global warming is occurring.” We must balance ecology with economics. Economically, the US is spending one billion dollars per day to import foreign oil. This money that is leaving our economy could be better spent creating jobs to develop energy from non-carbon-emitting nuclear, wind, and solar sources. Innovative energy technology will be described.
