October, 2014 I am A Global Warming Doubter and A Believer In Science, Part 2: More Scientists Become Doubters And Al Gore's Worst Nightmares

On a periodic basis, we revisit a continuing theme in this blog, “I am a global warming doubter AND a believer in science.” Several years ago we started investigating the viability of this position for a number of reasons:
  • It did not appear that global warming advocates were looking at all of the available global warming science, realities, and trends, just those select pieces of information that supported their position.
  • There seemed to be a growing sense of doubt among scientists about whether or not global warming was actually a real thing.
  • We were getting tired of Al Gore and others of his ilk who constantly were calling those that were undecided about global warming a whole litany of slurs including racists, homophobes, and other insulting terms.
After researching and writing about dozens of global warming information sources, we have proven over and over that it is perfectly logical to be a global warming doubter and a believer in science:
  • Realities show that global warming actually stopped about 18 years ago, causing global warming advocates to rebrand their position as “climate change” since “global warming” was no longer an emerging reality.
  •  Turns out the major global warming forecast models all turned out to be grossly inaccurate in predicting future climate and warming trends, throwing into doubt whether any man made global warming or climate change was actually happening.
  • Major and reputable scientists and science organizations (e.g. the renowned CERN Institute) were either originally determining that man made global warming and climate control never existed or changing their position to become doubters of what they may have original believed about global warming.
  • Important and prominent scientists around the world were caught manipulating climate data to verify their false claims and forecast models or were outed for at least contemplating changing real world data to match their ill performing analyses and forecasting models.
Previous exposes’ of global warming and climate change theories by using real world numbers, scientific experiments, and the simple act of observing can be accessed in this blog by typing “I am a global warming doubter” in the search box above. At that point, you will be provided many previous posts from this blog including dozens and dozens of information sources that more and more point to a repudiation of Al Gore and others, man made global warming, and man made climate change.

The latest proof that you can be a global warming doubter and a believer in sciences is discussed below:

1) Patrick Michaels is the director of the Cato Institute's Center for the Study of Science. He has a doctorate in ecological climatology so I guess you could consider him a scientist. Michaels spent three decades as a research professor of environmental sciences at the University of Virginia and was a contributing editor to the United Nations' Second Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report. 

In a recent interview he stated, as a scientist: "It has to be admitted eventually that too much warming was forecast too fast. This just has to happen. You can't go on and on and on. If the surface temperature resumed the warming rate that we observed from, say 1977 through 1998, we would still go close to a quarter of a century without significant net warming because there's such a long flat period built into the record now." 

“Without significant net warming.“ Sounds like maybe Al Gore and his limited set of scientists missed the boat on the global warming hysteria. Michaels went on within the interview to highlight the findings from the University of Illinois' Polar Ice Research Center. Those scientists found that the Antarctic ice cap "is at its highest extent measured by the current microwave satellite sounding system" since 1978: “And if you take a close look at the Arctic data, it appears the decline [in polar ice] stopped around 2005/2006, which means we've almost had 10 years without any net loss in Arctic ice." 

2) Talk about politicians being out of touch with what is important to Americans. A opinion survey earlier this year found that Americans ranked global warming 19th out of twenty issues that concerned them. Seems Americans have a lot more worries on their plate that rank far above the potential and weakening aspect of global warming.

Compare that reality to Secretary of State John Kerry's recent claim that climate change is "the biggest challenge of all that we face right now." Given all that we have discussed over the years relative to the science, realities, and numbers of climate and climate research, that increasingly show little if any relationship between mankind’s activities and global warming/climate change, how out of touch is Kerry and his boss in the White House relative to the needs of Americans?

3) Even some people who worked within the Obama administration are finally seeing the fallacy of Al Gore’s paranoia and ranting. Dr. Steven Koonin is a former high-ranking Obama administration official who served at the Energy Department as President Obama’s undersecretary for science in the Energy Department. He is currently the director of the Center for Urban Science and Progress at New York University. 

He recently stated that climate science and the implications of global warming are not "settled," going on to say that such claims are "misguided" and actually stifle debate on the matter. He laid out his position in a recent Wall Street Journal article.

Koonin proposed that “group think” among climate experts has been inhibiting "the scientific and policy discussions that we need to have about our climate future: "We often hear that there is a 'scientific consensus' about climate change, But as far as the computer models go, there isn't a useful consensus at the level of detail relevant to assessing human influences." 

Koonin claimed in the article that his extensive background as a computational physicist, including a 40-year career of scientific research and management, has given him an up-close knowledge of climate science: "Detailed technical discussions during the past year with leading climate scientists have given me an even better sense of what we know, and don't know, about climate." 

He concludes that whether the climate is changing is not disputed, as "the climate has always changed and always will." But for him, the primary unanswered question is how the climate will change under both natural and man-made influences, that is the only way to answer how mankind should react. He does believe, though in the picture of Mother Nature, "they [humans] are physically small in relation to the climate system as a whole," with additions to carbon dioxide to "directly shift the atmosphere's natural greenhouse effect by only 1% to 2%"no different, and no more certain" than it was 30 years ago.

4) Let’s finish today with some realities and facts as laid out in late October in the following NewsMax article:
  • Even though global warming stopped about 18 years ago, the Federal government still spends $22 billion a year to fight the global warming crisis. This is twice as much as it spends futilely trying to protect our southern border. (twice as much as it spends protecting our border). 
  •  According to Forbes columnist Larry Bell, , the ripple effect of global warming initiatives actually costs Americans $1.75 trillion every year. This comes out to over $15,000 a year for every U.S. household, $15,000 that cannot be spent productively to grow the economy or provide more personal satisfaction and freedom for every American.
  • The $1.75 trillion is about four times larger than this year’s Federal budget deficit.
  • This spending nonsense has been going on even though NASA’s own data, via Remote Sensing Systems (RSS), shows that the world has warmed a mere .36 degrees Fahrenheit over the last 35 years (they started measuring the data in 1979), with no warming in the past 18 years or so.
  • The global warming thesis weakens further when you consider that the North Polar ice cap is increasing in size, as measured by satellite images from NASA which actually reflect an increase of 43% to 63%.
  • Compare this reality to the historical delusion from Al Gore who boldly, and grossly incorrectly predicted: “The North Polar ice cap is falling off a cliff. It could be completely gone in summer in as little as seven years. Seven years from now.”
  • Even though the President of the United States clearly stated on twitter on May 16, 2014 that, “97% of scientists agree: climate change is real, man-made and dangerous,” the Wall Street Journal  found that, “The assertion that 97% of scientists believe that climate change is a man-made, urgent problem is a fiction.” and Forbes headlined an article with the title “Global Warming Alarmists Caught Doctoring ’97% Consensus’ Claims.”
  • Claude Allegre,the founding father of the man-made global warming ethos, recently renounced his position that man has caused warming. 
  • The NewsMax article also asserts that proof is emerging that Al Gore and even President Obama have financially benefited from fueling the global warming hysteria.

That will do it for this month’s review of the theme, “I am a global warming doubter and a believer in science.” As always when we finish these updates, I would like to tell Al Gore and his followers to shut up and sit down so that we can have an adult conversation on climate matters. 

No more name calling, no more slurs. Just adult conversation. Because the facts and realities are starting to pile up that show the doubters are right, the Al Gores are wrong. And that must really be an inconvenient truth for him.
