Disputing global warming

Published on April 6, 2011

I read with dismay the President’s Page Feb. 9 on the Princeton Plasma Physics Lab. Our University president just does not get it. She states that “Earth’s demand for energy grows increasing voracious and as fossil fuels grow progressively scarcer while dangerously raising global temperatures [emphasis added] ...” There is no consensus on this issue, and some very smart Princeton graduates have disputed it with very good data and analysis. The weather this winter must cause some global-warming folks to squirm.

For the president of Princeton to state this as fact is very disappointing. She has been equally dogmatic on evolution as if there is no other alternative. I though Princeton was a place where critical thought was not only allowed, but encouraged. I am obviously mistaken.
