Global Warming: Is There Anything It Cannot Do?

The headline shouts...

Climate change to affect food safety

But, really, they are just mailing it in. The profession of one of the "experts" says all you need to know (highlighting mine) about the level of science involved.

EAST LANSING, Mich. — Climate change is already having an effect on the safety of the world’s food supplies and unless action is taken it’s only going to get worse, a Michigan State University professor told a symposium at this year’s meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
Ewen Todd, an MSU professor of advertising, public relations and retailing, organized a session titled “How Climate Change Affects the Safety of the World’s Food Supply” at which several nationally known experts warned that food safety is already an issue and will worsen unless climate change is confronted.
“Accelerating climate change is inevitable with implications for animal products and crops,” said Todd, who also is an AAAS Fellow...

In the Inhofe post below, I mention the online poll the AAAS took of its members (and only its members) to learn that "98% of scientists" believe in global warming. Mr. Todd (who I'm sure is sincere and a fine person), professor of advertising and public relations, is described as a "Fellow" of AAAS and would have been eligible to have participated in the poll. Yet, he is hardly a scientist.

So, when you see these claims, they are not talking about atmospheric scientists. Besides, even if there were, science is about what can be proven, not people's opinions.
