Global Warming and Evolution—Two Decisive Dialogues from the World’s Top Minds Now Complete at TheBestSchools.org
PELLA, IOWA (Sept. 26, 2017) — They say two sides exist for every story. So, what happens when the world’s leading experts from opposite sides of a contentious topic come together in conversation?
To that end, TheBestSchools.org presents two Focused Civil Dialogues on the most pressing issues of our day, Global Warming and Evolution.
Is CO2-driven global warming good for the planet? Or does its rise spell doom for life on earth? University of Melbourne’s Dr. David Karoly and engineer & solar scientist Glenn Tamblyn dialogue with Princeton University’s William Happer on this hot issue.
Meanwhile, University of Oxford’s Dr. Denis Noble and Binghamton University’s David Sloan Wilson take conflicting positions on whether neo-Darwinism alone adequately explains the function, purpose, and goal-directedness found in the planet’s biology.
Which expert presents the most compelling case?
“We are delighted to have leaders in physiology, biology, physics, engineering, and climatology discuss these controversial issues,” says Dan Edelen, director of marketing services for TheBestSchools.org. “Bringing together these informative voices in a format that emphasizes genuine civil discourse helps readers get to the factual heart of difficult topics in a manageable and engaging way.”
The two Focused Civil Dialogues at TheBestSchools.org:
- Noble–Wilson Dialogue on Evolution: Is Neo-Darwinism Enough?
- Karoly/Tamblyn–Happer Dialogue on Global Warming
As added excitement, when Dr. Karoly was unable to continue in the Global Warming dialogue, TheBestSchools.org opened his position to the scientific community, sponsoring a worldwide $5,000 contest for the best refutation of Dr. Happer’s opening statement. Australian engineer Glenn Tamblyn won, and he concluded the discussion, providing an additional challenge to Dr. Happer.
“Focused Civil Dialogues represent the best kind of organized discussion,” says Edelen. “Through opening statements, refutations, and final replies, we can channel the conversation toward constructive, meaningful, and challenging ends. We think truthseekers will find the format and conversations enlightening and useful for achieving better understanding of both sides’ positions.”
