In 2006, Dr. Peter Doran wrote an op-ed for the New York Times about a research paper he and his colleagues published in Nature in 2002. The research presented in the paper showed that from 1986 to 2000, there had been climate cooling in one small area of Antarctica. The information in the paper was quickly mis-interpreted by a number of high-profile media personalities as proof that global warming was not happening, and Dr. Doran wrote the op-ed to set the record straight. Today I had the rare opportunity to interview him about this and his current research. Here is the interview:
