CFAES’s outreach arm, OSU Extension, has published a new climate change fact sheet.
“(It) addresses many aspects of the topic that often confuse members of the public,” author Tom Blaine of Extension’s Community Development program wrote in an email. “Questions like the following are answered: Hasn’t Earth’s climate always changed? Hasn’t it been much warmer on Earth in the past? Could humans really be affecting Earth’s climate? What is the outlook for the future? The fact sheet is replete with graphs and a summary of Earth’s climate history over the past 600 million years, including discussions of the ice ages and their causes.”
