This is simply untrue – in fact, the IPCC climate predictions have been amongst the most accurate thus farmuch better than Lindzen and his fellow fake skeptics have done Figure 2. It kind of reminds me The 15 year-old Swede put world leaders to I was unaware that Rutan held those views.

While it’s true that in a controlled setting like a greenhouse, increased CO2 levels will generally improve plant growth, the global climate is not so simple. New research, NovemberArchives Climate Hustle. New York University survey results of economists with climate expertise when asked under what circumstances the USA should reduce its emissions.

The “concerned scientists” then follow with the myth that CO2 limits will harm the economy. T he liberal media and an overwhelming majority of scientists would have us believe that there is no real debate about climate change. Not a climate science reference, but a unique perspective – An engineering critique of the activist climate scientists and their process of data gathering, processing and presentation.

We must keep the debate open and listen to the voices of scientists and non-scientists alike. I have advocated a carbon tax for many years as the best way to attack the issue. Inhofe also sews doubt about climate change through creativity, imagination, and excellent use of props. That is true whether the product is an airplane or a Carbon Credit. However, recent research by Loeb et al.

I became a cynic; My conclusion – ‘if someone is aggressively selling a technical product who’s merits are dependent on complex experimental data, he is likely lying’. Dr Michaels is so passionate and committed to his work, he has a habit of deleting or distorting data. Gish Gallop of Fake Facts After making a number of unsubstantiated and false assertions about the “growing number” of climate “skeptics,” the letter then lays out what they see as the evidence supporting their fake skepticism.

Media Matters reported on the 16 scientists who signed the Op-Ed, and found that most of them have not published any research in the area of climate science.

Increasing CO2 in the climate also changes temperatures, precipitation, drought and flood frequencies, and a number of other factors which impact plant growth.

As they tend to do from time to time in an effort to distract from the climate science consensusa group of scientists who are also climate “skeptics” have published an opinion-editorial op-edtrying to make the case against taking action to address climate change. The fact that only 16 scientists and engineers signed this letter casts serious doubt on this assertion. It would not surprise me if it did. The Physical Science Basis.

Just when we thought the op-ed letter couldn’t get worse, these warjing skeptics have the gall to suggest that we “follow the money,” because climate “alarmism” supposedly brings bountiful research funding, “an excuse for governments to raise taxes”, “big donations” for environmental groups, and other similar tinfoil-hattery.

The global increase of CO2 is a grand biological experiment, with countless complications that make the net effect of this increase very difficult to predict with any appreciable level of detail. The op-ed then repeats the old “CO2 isn’t a pollutant” myth.

Brian Angliss does a superb job of trying to discuss science with Burt Glohal, Engineer to Engineer like, and Burt Rutan exposes himself as a ideologically driven demagogue he seems to have become – refusing to acknowledge anything other than his own shallow talking points.

Inhofe sees a lot of similarities between those who worry about the threat posed by climate change and those who worry about the threat posed by Jewish people: Not-So-Missing Heat The second myth is that Kevin Trenberth’s quote-mined comment ” The fact is that we can’t buurt for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can’t ” is an admission that global warming stopped.
