REJOICE! The Good Guys have won!
There is now a consensus of 1,000 scientists worldwide who now agree there is no such thing as global warming caused by man’s activities on earth AND in fact, the earth is not warming.
Many of these “skeptical” scientists were previously involved the in the “global warming” body of thought. Because of the past year of revelations of falsified data, many scientists have to the conclusion that the global warming theory was “fabricated” for financial reasons by certain members of the science and corporate communities who stood to profit from research dollars or spin-off industries.
Here are a few comments by the scientific community about global warming fraud:
“We’re not scientifically there yet. Despite what you may have heard in the media, there is nothing like a consensus of scientific opinion that this is a problem. Because there is natural variability in the weather, you cannot statistically know for another 150 years.” — UN IPCC’s Tom Tripp, a member of the UN IPCC since 2004 and listed as one of the lead authors and serves as the Director of Technical Services & Development for U.S. Magnesium.
“Any reasonable scientific analysis must conclude the basic theory wrong!!” — NASA Scientist Dr. Leonard Weinstein who worked 35 years at the NASA Langley Research Center and finished his career there as a Senior Research Scientist. Weinstein is presently a Senior Research Fellow at the National Institute of Aerospace.
“Please remain calm: The Earth will heal itself — Climate is beyond our power to control…Earth doesn’t care about governments or their legislation. You can’t find much actual global warming in present-day weather observations. Climate change is a matter of geologic time, something that the earth routinely does on its own without asking anyone’s permission or explaining itself.” — Nobel Prize-Winning Stanford University Physicist Dr. Robert B. Laughlin, who won the Nobel Prize for physics in 1998, and was formerly a research scientist at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.
“In essence, the jig is up. The whole thing is a fraud. And even the fraudsters that fudged data are admitting to temperature history that they used to say didn’t happen…Perhaps what has doomed the Climategate fraudsters the most was their brazenness in fudging the data” — Dr. Christopher J. Kobus, Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Oakland University, specializes in alternative energy, thermal transport phenomena, two-phase flow and fluid and thermal energy systems.
“The energy mankind generates is so small compared to that overall energy budget that it simply cannot affect the climate…The planet’s climate is doing its own thing, but we cannot pinpoint significant trends in changes to it because it dates back millions of years while the study of it began only recently. We are children of the Sun; we simply lack data to draw the proper conclusions.” — Russian Scientist Dr. Anatoly Levitin, the head of geomagnetic variations laboratory at the Institute of Terrestrial Magnetism, Ionosphere and Radiowave Propagation of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
“Hundreds of billion dollars have been wasted with the attempt of imposing a Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) theory that is not supported by physical world evidences…AGW has been forcefully imposed by means of a barrage of scare stories and indoctrination that begins in the elementary school textbooks.” — Brazilian Geologist Geraldo Luís Lino, who authored the 2009 book “The Global Warming Fraud: How a Natural Phenomenon Was Converted into a False World Emergency.”
“I am an environmentalist,” but “I must disagree with Mr. Gore” — Chemistry Professor Dr. Mary Mumper, the chair of the Chemistry Department at Frostburg State University in Maryland, during her presentation titled “Anthropogenic Carbon Dioxide and Global Warming, the Skeptic’s View.”
“I am ashamed of what climate science has become today.” The science “community is relying on an inadequate model to blame CO2 and innocent citizens for global warming in order to generate funding and to gain attention. If this is what ‘science’ has become today, I, as a scientist, am ashamed.” — Research Chemist William C. Gilbert published a study in August 2010 in the journal Energy & Environment titled “The thermodynamic relationship between surface temperature and water vapor concentration in the troposphere” and he published a paper in August 2009 titled “Atmospheric Temperature Distribution in a Gravitational Field.” [Update December 9, 2010]
“The dysfunctional nature of the climate sciences is nothing short of a scandal. Science is too important for our society to be misused in the way it has been done within the Climate Science Community.” The global warming establishment “has actively suppressed research results presented by researchers that do not comply with the dogma of the IPCC.” — Swedish Climatologist Dr. Hans Jelbring, of the Paleogeophysics & Geodynamics Unit at Stockholm University. [Updated December 9, 2010. Corrects Jelbring's quote.]
“Those who call themselves ‘Green planet advocates’ should be arguing for a CO2- fertilized atmosphere, not a CO2-starved atmosphere…Diversity increases when the planet was warm AND had high CO2 atmospheric content…Al Gore’s personal behavior supports a green planet – his enormous energy use with his 4 homes and his bizjet, does indeed help make the planet greener. Kudos, Al for doing your part to save the planet.” — Renowned engineer and aviation/space pioneer Burt Rutan, who was named “100 most influential people in the world, 2004″ by Time Magazine and Newsweek called him “the man responsible for more innovations in modern aviation than any living engineer.”
“Global warming is the central tenet of this new belief system in much the same way that the Resurrection is the central tenet of Christianity. Al Gore has taken a role corresponding to that of St Paul in proselytizing the new faith…My skepticism about AGW arises from the fact that as a physicist who has worked in closely related areas, I know how poor the underlying science is. In effect the scientific method has been abandoned in this field.” — Atmospheric Physicist Dr. John Reid, who worked with Australia’s CSIRO’s (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization) Division of Oceanography and worked in surface gravity waves (ocean waves) research.
“We maintain there is no reason whatsoever to worry about man-made climate change, because there is no evidence whatsoever that such a thing is happening.” — Greek Earth scientists Antonis Christofides and Nikos Mamassis of the National Technical University of Athens’ Department of Water Resources and Environmental Engineering.
“There are clear cycles during which both temperature and salinity rise and fall. These cycles are related to solar activity…In my opinion and that of our institute, the problems connected to the current stage of warming are being exaggerated. What we are dealing with is not a global warming of the atmosphere or of the oceans.” — Biologist Pavel Makarevich of the Biological Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
“Because the greenhouse effect is temporary rather than permanent, predictions of significant global warming in the 21st century by IPCC are not supported by the data.” — Hebrew University Professor Dr. Michael Beenstock an honorary fellow with Institute for Economic Affairs who published a study challenging man-made global warming claims titled “Polynomial Cointegration Tests of the Anthropogenic Theory of Global Warming.”
“The whole idea of anthropogenic global warming is completely unfounded. There appears to have been money gained by Michael Mann, Al Gore and UN IPCC’s Rajendra Pachauri as a consequence of this deception, so it’s fraud.” — South African astrophysicist Hilton Ratcliffe, a member of the Astronomical Society of Southern Africa (ASSA) and the Astronomical Society of the Pacific and a Fellow of the British Institute of Physics.
Here is the final roundup report from Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT) on the conclusion of COP 16 in Cancun….which “picked some of the low-hanging fruit” but did not get a new treaty to replace the Kyoto treaty. (Thank goodness!)
CFACT’s “Meet the Skeptics” press conference draws international attention
As the climate treaty talks fizzled, CFACT ended its time in Cancun with a bang! On Thursday, December 9, CFACT held a press conference at the UN Climate Change Conference, showcasing two of the skeptical movement’s most prominent leaders, Dr. Roy Spencer and Lord Christopher Monckton. (Click here to watch)
At the press conference, Dr. Spencer released a statement debunking a paper by Dr. Andrew Dressler on cloud feedback in the climate system. Dressler’s paper had been released by Science just an hour earlier! Dr. Spencer said, “Andy Dessler’s study will not stand hard scrutiny. COP16 delegates worried about the ongoing credibility problems of climate modeling will find no solace in Dessler’s work.” The New York Times carried Dr. Spencer’s comments, saying Dressler’s paper triggered “a thunderstorm among skeptics in Cancun.”
Lord Christopher Monckton also released a statement on the politics of the global warming conference and how the negotiations threaten the national sovereignty of the United States and other Western countries. Entitled “Negotiating the abdication of the West at COP16,” Lord Monckton’s statement warned that the “governing class in what was once proudly known as the Free World is silently, casually letting go of liberty, prosperity, and even democracy itself.”
The technical staff in the room said CFACT’s press conference had more attendees than any other they had seen there! In addition to the New York Times article mentioned earlier, the UK’s Telegraph published an unflattering article about the press conference that ignored Dr. Spencer’s important scientific work.
Glenn Beck’s site picks up CFACT’s “Climate Kooks” video!
You saw it here first, but Glenn Beck’s The Blaze website carried a story on the mock petition drive our CFACT Collegians students passed around the UN conference.
In case you missed it, they created two mock-petitions to test UN delegates. The first asked participants to help destabilize the United States economy, the second to ban water. The resulting Climate Kooks video is on the verge of going viral, having already racked up nearly 50,000 views!
At the Cancun meeting, Sierra Clubbers and other nutso-crunchy environmentalists were involved in worthwhile events such as this one: making a video where they put their heads in the sand to mock people who don’t believe in their junk science. Nice work if you can get it. Hopefully, the funding for this folly will dry up soon…….oh and they actually stick their heads in the sand at 8:45 on the tape.
