Some interesting questions

From Pat Sajak, of all people. I only know him from the game show. Anyhow, in this article, he puts forward 10 sensible questions in regards to global warming and climate change. These are his 10 questions, however go and visit his article to check out his comments for each question, too.

1. What is the perfect temperature?
2. Just what is the average temperature of the earth?
3. What factors have led to global warming in the past, and how do we know they aren’t the causes of the current warming trend?
4. Why is there such a strong effort to stifle discussion and dissent?
5. Why are there such dramatically different warnings about the effects of man-made global warming?
6. Are there potential benefits to global warming?
7. Should such drastic changes in public policy be based on a “what if?” proposition?
8. What will be the impact on the people of the world if we change the way we live based on man-made global warming concerns?
9. How will we measure our successes?
10. How has this movement gained such momentum?

I feel these are all very reasonable questions that we need answers to in order to make the right decisions.
