Mauricio Pena MBA 584 Junkscience Paper Freedman: Three Statistics for Climate Change On his article, “Three Statistics for Climate Change”, Andrew Freedman tells us how nations are getting concern about the climate changes and how they are using statistical results to indentify the problem and also to find a solution.

Every nation is just pointing fingers against each other and no one is taking responsibility for their actions. A good example is the Unites States asking China and India to reduce their emission of greenhouse houses, but at the same time these countries ask the United States to do it first since they signed the “U.N Framework Convention on Climate Change” in 1992. While this is happening the Maldives, a small island, could be affected by the climate change and be erased from the map if the sea level keeps increasing.

There are three statistics
