Dr. John Hollins, past CACOR Chair Board of Directors, stated:
French mathematician Joseph Fourier discovered in 1824 that the Earth’s atmosphere functions as a blanket. In 1896, Swedish scientist Svante Arrhenius explained how.
The need to reduce the emission of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases in order to avoid catastrophic global warming was understood and accepted by the Government of Canada in 1988. In 1992, Canada’s prime minister was the first to sign the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
Global warming is an existential issue. If a candidate for the Canadian Parliament denies the extraordinarily well-founded science, it is a reflection only on that candidate – probably thinks as well that the Earth is flat. Elections Canada should untie the knot in its knickers.
