Q4 2014 Poll opened October 28, 2014.
How strongly do you agree or disagree with the following statements?
Average global temperature is not a good indicator of planetary health.
Concentrations of CO2 and other greenhouse gases (or the change in radiative forcing caused by those gases) is a better indicator of climate-change risk than average global temperature.
Ocean heat content is a better indicator of climate-change risk than average global temperature.
Abundant natural gas does little to reduce GHGs, even assuming very low rates of methane leakage.
If governmental policies do not change, CO2-emitting infrastructure will continue to be built faster than it is retired.
A global goal for average CO2 concentrations in 2030 or 2050 must be agreed on and translated into specific emissions and policy efforts.
