I dont know that it has that strong an effect, that much impact, on global warming. It could have an effect thats very small, even if it turns out to be a large effect on it, but I think it has more to do with economics,’ Mr Alford said.
I think it’s more the psychology of global warming than its the science itself. There have been other things in the past years, I mean, I think weve had things that have been small, especially in the past few years especially, but overall, the impact on the economy is that itll make the economy very fragile as you go out. If theres a recession in Germany, it can just cripple the global economy there are those sort of things, so if it happens, its very disruptive to the global economy.
In the next few decades, I think if theres a global crisis, and it’s a major crisis, and if its economically damaging, those are the sorts of things you worry about for those type of times, and if it happens, it may not be a small thing at all it may be a larger problem.’
Climatologists generally agree that climate change has already made major changes in weather worldwide, which could have drastic effects on farming and human health.
However, some experts argue that it is too soon to be alarmed by human caused climate change.
