Global Warming Takes a Shot in the Globes

Posted by Jeff Id on September 12, 2008

After a decade of wrecking Michael Mann’s preeminent papers which defined the hockey stick, Steve McIntyre and Ross McKitrick got a bit of help this week. After his first hockey stick paper was made famous, McIntyre and McKitrick diligently worked for years to discredit what was obviously a scientifically invalid paper. The hockey stick was made famous first by the UN IPCC and then more so by Al Gore. … with unintentional support from Wayne Gretsky and Steve Yzerman.

Ok, Mann is at it again. The hockey stick guy who created the graph used by Al Gore and the IPCC to create the widely discredited hockey stick graph. Already caught one time by Steve McIntyre cherry picking the data to create false statistical values has gone one step further. To read about how the scientifically corrupt IPCC brought the hockey stick back from the dead go HERE. I took the text below from an article HERE.

Global Warming is Here It is Real and It is Dangerous

Posted by Jeff Id on August 30, 2008

Global warming is a serious issue, we are facing the reality that the poles are melting, species are facing extinction, more powerful storms are possible, drought, famine with billions of dollars in cost expected. It can be helped though, we can stop it, we just need to reduce our CO2 by 30% in 25 years. The non-profit intergovernmental panel on climate change (IPCC) has determined that that we must act now to stop it before it reaches the tipping point.

Consensus? A Partial List of Experts Who Don’t Agree

From this link here.

Does this sound like consensus?

Believe global warming is primarily caused by natural processes

Individuals in this section conclude that the observed warming is more likely attributable to natural causes than to human activities.

  • Khabibullo Abdusamatov, mathematician and astronomer at Pulkovskaya Observatory of the Russian Academy of Sciences: “Global warming results not from the emission of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, but from an unusually high level of solar radiation and a lengthy – almost throughout the last century – growth in its intensity…Ascribing ‘greenhouse’ effect properties to the Earth’s atmosphere is not scientifically substantiated…Heated greenhouse gases, which become lighter as a result of expansion, ascend to the atmosphere only to give the absorbed heat away.”[14][15][16]
  • Sallie Baliunas, astronomer, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics: “[T]he recent warming trend in the surface temperature record cannot be caused by the increase of human-made greenhouse gases in the air.”[17] Read the rest of this entry »

Posted by Jeff Id on August 26, 2008

Global warming skeptics are people like me who have a real concern for the environment, yet we feel that the governments of the world are exaggerating even the worst case scenarios for political gain.

– A global warming skeptic believes that the main organization pressing global warming the IPCC (intergovernmental panel on climate control) formed in 1988 would cease to exist if global warming were not true.
