[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.
This 2008 Report summarizes the work of qualified scientists who went through the U.N. IPCC data and other peer reviewed material. The body of their work is 800 pages in length. Their conclusion is that man has only an insignificant influence on Earth's climate.
