The climate change unbelievers

Piers Corbyn, maverick weather forecaster and owner of Weather Action

By Tim Walker

From The Independent, October 12, 2008

Global warming is happening and we’re to blame, right? That’s certainly the view of almost every expert in the field. But a die-hard band of naysayers continues to rail against the consensus. Are they completely mad? Judge for yourself…

The caption calls him the “high priest of deceit and global destruction”. The picture has him belching fire like a dragon. And who is the subject of this highly personal attack? None other than Al Gore, who last year won the Nobel Peace Prize, along with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), for their success in bringing the climate-change crisis to global public attention.

Not everybody likes Gore and his beliefs about the future of our planet – and especially not Hans Schreuder, the 62-year-old former chemist who runs the Gore-baiting website Ilovemycarbondioxide.com (see page 29). Schreuder is one of the climate-change sceptics who continue to make their case despite the mounting evidence of climate change that we, the public, are presented with every day; despite the unanimous endorsement of climate-change theory by every national academy of science in the industrialised world.

Prime Minister Kevin Rudd lashes climate change skeptics



By the blogowner, honestclimate, September 21, 2008

Prime Minister or Prime Tourist?

Kevin Rudd: Australian Prime Minister or Prime Tourist?

Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has lashed climate change sceptics as “reckless and irresponsible”.

Mr Rudd said:

We must prepare for a low-carbon economy.

To delay any longer, to stay in denial as the climate change sceptics and some members opposite would have us do, is reckless and irresponsible.

For our generation, for our kids and future generations, we must act now.

Meanwhile, for a man so concerned about man-made global warming, he sure does love to travel around the world a lot. Is the Jettsetter Prime Minister losing votes because of his jettsetting ways?

With a “carbon footprint” that size when does he have time to look his children in the eye?

The ugly side of Science



By the blogowner, honestclimate

When I was in primary school we were told to always question everything, my class teacher used to tell us not to believe everything we read and she introduced us to a rather big word at the time, called propaganda.

A few years later my science teacher told us that the best scientists in the world were the ones who questioned the norm and were skeptical by nature. She likened it to people who touch the sign that says “wet paint” just to check for sure that the paint was indeed wet.

Scientists who dare question the man-made global warming theory are called amongst other things, deniers, being on par with Holocaust deniers, are accused of being in the pay of big oil companies, are accused of believing that smoking doesn’t cause cancer, are called flat earth scientists etc and usually their funding gets taken or they get threatened with dismissal.

So why is it that when scientists question the man-made global warming theory, they get treated with such disdain? And why do climate scientists refuse to debate the skeptics?

I can only believe that the man-made global warming theory is full of holes and that the only way for the alarmist climate scientists to defend their weak science is to attack the man, rather than debate the facts…
