[Climate change] Thanks to records derived from ice core samples, geoscientists can identify, with considerable accuracy, the average temperatures at the Earth’s poles over the past 400,000 years. We know less about how those temperatures correlate to the rise and fall of global sea level. That is where researchers such as Andrea Dutton ’95 come in.

Amherst Debate slides of Harvey Sheldon

These are the slides I used at Amherst College on May 30, 2009 to debate and rebut Bob Knox' presentation on the subject of whether man's carbon emissions are significant causes of global warming. I never got through them all. Some of the sources are lost in the notes that are not shown on the PDF, and I apologize for that. My thanks in particular to Dr. Lindzen of MIT, Lord Monckton of Brenchley, and to a brilliant friend and scientist in California wishing to remain anonymous for their help in my explorations and preparations on this subject.
