Global Climate

“Gore’s circumstantial arguments are so weak that they are pathetic. It is simply incredible that they, and his film, are commanding public attention.”

Professor Bob Carter
Marine Geophysical Laboratory
James Cook University, Australia

 

“The most recent survey of climate scientists, following the same methodology as a published study from 1996, found that while there had been a move toward acceptance of anthropogenic global warming, only 9.4% of respondents “strongly agree” that climate change is mostly the result of anthropogenic sources. A similar proportion “strongly disagree.” Furthermore, only 22.8% of respondents “strongly agree” that the IPCC reports accurately reflect a consensus within climate science.”

Professor Dennis Bray
GKSS Forschungsznetrum, Geesthacht, Germany

 
“The greenhouse effect may play some role. But those who are absolutely certain that the rise in temperature is due solely to carbon dioxide have no scientific justification. It’s pure guesswork.”

Henrik Svensmark
Director of the Centre for Sun-Climate Research
Danish National Space Center, 10/4/2006
 

“Alarm rather than genuine scientific curiosity, it appears, is essential to maintain funding. And only the most senior scientists today can stand up against this alarmist gale, and defy the iron triangle of climate scientists, advocates, and policy makers.”

Dr Richard Lindzen
MIT Sloan Professor of Meteorology

 

“With respect to science, the assumption behind the [alarmist] consensus is that science is the source of authority, and that authority increases with the number of scientists [who agree]. But science is not primarily a source of authority. It is a particularly effective approach of inquiry and analysis. Skepticism is essential to science – consensus is foreign.”

Dr Richard Lindzen
MIT Sloan Professor of Meteorology

 

“Why are the opinions of scientists sought [about global warming] regardless of their field of expertise? Biologists and physicians are rarely asked to endorse some theory in high energy physics. Apparently, when it comes to global warming, any scientist’s agreement will do.”

Dr Richard Lindzen
MIT Sloan Professor of Meteorology

 

 

“The degree to which you believe global warming is causing major hurricanes to increase is inversely proportional to your knowledge about these storms.”

Dr William Gray
Hurricane Research guru

 

 

“Q: I gather from this last discussion that it would be absurd to attribute the Katrina disaster to global warming?

“A: Yes, it would be absurd.”

Kerry Emanual, MIT

 

 

“If long-term trends are accepted as a valid measure of climate change, then the air temperature and ice data do not support the proposed polar amplification of [CO2-induced] global warming. The potential importance of large-amplitude variability and numerous feedbacks involved in Arctic atmosphere-ice-ocean interactions implies that the Arctic poses severe challenges to generating credible model-based projections of climate change.”

Polyakov, Akasofu
and seven other colleagues
International Arctic Research Center, 2002

 

 

“An analysis carried out by Citizens for a Sound Economy (CSE) shows that fully 90 percent of the ‘scientists’ who have signed a letter frequently cited by [Clinton-Gore] administration officials as evidence of scientific consensus on global warming are not qualified to be called experts on the issue. The letter, circulated by the environmental group Ozone Action, offers the names of some 2,600  alleged experts on climate change – only one of whom is, in fact, a climatologist. Among these so-called ‘experts on global warming are a plastic surgeon, two landscape architects, one hotel manager, a gynecologist, seven linguists and even one person whose background is traditional Chinese medicine.”

The Heartland Institute, 1997

 

 

“The continued rapid cooling of the earth since WWII is in accord with the increase in global air pollution associated with industrialization, mechanization and exploding urban population.”

Reid Bryson, 1971

 

 

“The advent of a new ice age, scientists say, appears to be guaranteed. The devastation will be astonishing.”

Gregg Easterbrook, Newsweek, 11/92

 

 

“The rapid cooling of the earth since WWII is also in accord with increased air pollution associated with industrialization and an exploding population.”

Reid Bryson, 1971

 

 

“The threat of a new ice age must now stand alongside nuclear war as a likely source of wholesale death and misery for mankind.”

Nigel Calder, 1975

 

 

“There is a problem with global warming – it stopped in 1998.”

The Telegraph [UK], 2006

About Alex Scipio

About Alex Scipio: Alex moved out of the People's Republic of California to the Free State of Arizona, finally tiring of the lack of the Bill of Rights, the overgrown idiocracy, and the catering to non-Americans & welfare recipients. He still wonders how America got from Truman, Eisenhower, and Daniel Patrick Moynihan to the Liberal and Conservative extremes so badly managing America today. And, yes, islam DOES need to be annihilated. And doing what he can to get folks away from the extremes of political life.
