Global Warming? No!

Discussion of global warming data and issues is being suppressed. Leading scientific journals have taken strong editorial positions of the side of global warming. They have no business doing this. Under the circumstances, any scientist who has doubts about global warming knows they should keep quiet. One proof of this suppression is the fact that so many of the critics of global warming are retired professors. They are no longer seeking grants, and no longer have to face colleagues whose grant applications and career advancement may be harmed by their criticism. 

Temperatures are not rising. The HadCRUT3 index shows temperatures rising to 1878, cooling to 1911, warming to 1941, cooling to 1964, warming to 1998, then cooling through 2011. This recent cooling data is backed by by weather balloons, ground stations, and satellites. Two science teams showed that accounting for increased growth in urban areas reduces the warming trend in half.

Increased CO2 levels do not add to the Greenhouse Effect and do not warm the planet. In fact, there is solid evidence that increased carbon dioxide levels are the result of warming. As temperatures rise and fall cyclically due to various factors, more CO2 is expelled.

Global warming advocates use circular reasoning to prove their assumptions. Computer models make assumptions, but the model’s output cannot be verified because assumptions were used.

In 1996 the United Nations reported that CO2 caused global warming, but deleted two statements from the final draft: (1) “None of the studies cited above has shown clear evidence that we can attribute the odserved climate changes to increases in greenhouse gases.” (2) “No study to date has positively attributed all or part of the climate change to man-made causes.”

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reported that sea levels rose about 3.1 mm per year for 10 years. Three millimeters is about the thickness of two dimes. A change this small cannot be accurately measured, based on the current measuring devices (satellites) and variables such as weather, temperature, tides, icecaps, and shorelines. Scientists even use “fudge-factors” in their work, making it even more clear that this sea level increase number isn’t an actual number.
