[Comments on] The Greenhouse Debate: Part 2


  • Anonymous


A four-part series of articles published in the December 31, 1991, issue of Eos under the title “The Greenhouse Debate: Time For Action?” analyzed the proposition that a 10-year delay in initiating reductions of greenhouse-gas emissions would have only a small effect on long-term climate change. We have received several responses to the series, most of which take issue with the proposition originally presented by Michael E. Schlesinger and Xingjian Jiang in their 1991 Nature paper. Three of those comments are presented below followed by a reply from Schlesinger.
