More Scientists say the Science is not settled–Part 3

October 28, 2011

  • Greek Earth scientists Antonis Christofides and Nikos Mamassis – “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.”
  • Pavel Makarevich of the Biological Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences – “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.”
  • Hebrew University Professor Dr. Michael Beenstock an honorary fellow with Institute for Economic Affairs – “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.”

  • South African astrophysicist Hilton Ratcliffe, a member of the Astronomical Society of Southern Africa – “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.”
  • Prominent physicist Hal Lewis resigned from American Physical Society, calling global warming the greatest and most successful pseudoscientific fraud I have seen in my long life.”
  • Climate Scientist at the UEA, Mike Hulme admits – “Claims such as ‘2,500 of the world’s leading scientists have reached a consensus that human activities are having a significant influence on the climate’ are disingenuous. That particular consensus judgement, as are many others in the IPCC reports, is reached by only a few dozen experts in the specific field of detection and attribution studies; other IPCC authors are experts in other fields.”
  • Award-winning Swedish Mathematics Professor Dr. Claes Johnson – “AGW alarmism is based on an idea of ‗back radiation‘ or ‗re-radiation‘ from an atmosphere with greenhouse gases, but the physics of this phenomenon remains unclear.” Johnson explained that backradiation from atmospheric greenhouse CO2 ―is unphysical and purely fictional.
  • Meteorologist Dave Epstein, who teaches at Framingham State College – “I am angered by climatologists, environmentalists, and politicians who purvey one of the biggest myths of modern time”
  • Dr Peter Bonk, a member of the American Chemical Society – ―When one realizes all the factors at play that define and shape climate, the idea of hanging all the changes (and saying that they are all bad) on CO2, an important but minor atmospheric component, seem beyond all reason”
  • Atmospheric Scientist Dr. Tim Coleman  rejected the ‘hysteria’ of global warming in 2009 – ‘It has now gotten to the point that almost any major weather event is blamed by someone on global climate change”
  • A survey of American Meteorological Society members revealed – “75% disagreed with IPCC claims”

Still think the science is settled? More tomorrow.
