ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the opinion of researchers on the issue of global warming. The recent book "State of Fear," by Michael Crichton, echoes the stance of climate skeptics, rubbishing predictions that global temperatures are set to rise. However, some climate researchers refused to take such talk lying down. The site, RealClimate, is the brainchild of a group of respected climate scientists who are determined to tackle what they see as poor media coverage of their field. Gavin Schmidt, a climate modeller at the U.S. NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York who helped to launch the site, concedes that it is "in some senses" a vehicle for advocacy, rather than science.
