Global Warming

Sometimes what’s most interesting about a 60 Minutes segment we publish is not the piece itself, but the reader comments (and conversation) that follow it. In the case of last Sunday’s global warming story on Yahoo! News 60 Minutes, the feature itself was exceptionally well reported, photographed, and written. So it was icing on the cake to read the comments left by readers in the past week.

What’s fascinating is how much the average American still doesn’t know about global climate science, how many myths still persist out there, and how confused people are about what’s happening and what to do about it. Policy makers, scientists and journalists all have their work cut out for them just to properly educate the public. The 60 Minutes segment from last Sunday goes a long way towards that goal.
