Quick Thoughts on Global Warming

Last week we had an exciting event at the La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club with Walter Munk, Harold Smith and his wife, Gil Binninger and his wife and son, and Betty and me. Walter Munk is a leading oceanographer with roots at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. He told us his views on global warming. Walter thinks it’s real.

I’m inclined to agree with him. I think there’s been mounting evidence over the years that this is a real effect, primarily from increased CO2 and other noxious gases (including SO2) in the atmosphere from coal-fired power plants. China is the main offender. The U.S. has done a lot to attenuate its emissions of CO2.
