UK Geological Society Releases New Statement on Climate Change It is not possible to relate the Earth’s warming since 1970 to anything recognisable as having a geological cause (such as volcanic activity, continental displacement, or changes in the energy received from the sun). – Geological Society of London, November 1, 2010 The Geological Society of … Continue reading
American Physical Society Reaffirms That Human Activities Affect Earth’s Climate. There is a substantial body of peer reviewed scientific research to support the technical aspects of the 2007 APS statement….Greenhouse gas emissions are changing the Earth’s energy balance on a planetary scale in ways that affect the climate over long periods of time (~100 years)….While … Continue reading
Why won’t scientists debate the issue of climate change? There is a problem with debates. It’s called sweat. Vice President Richard Nixon lost the first ever televised Presidential debate to his opponent, Senator John F. Kennedy. At least that’s the conclusion the television audience reached, and it very well may have cost Nixon the Presidency.
NOTE: A separate page is now available for the latest updates to this information. Below is a list of scientific organizations around the world that acknowledge the global impact of rising atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations from human activities. While many more organizations could likely be added, the list is limited to organizations that have either … Continue reading
Moreover, why are the opinions of scientists sought regardless of their field of expertise? Biologists and physicians are rarely asked to endorse some theory in high energy physics. Apparently, when one comes to “global warming,” any scientist’s agreement will do. The answer almost certainly lies in politics. Dr. Richard S. Lindzen, M.I.T. Alfred P. Sloan … Continue reading
Science is not by popular vote. It is a refrain heard often in debates concerning climate change. A charge levied at supporters of the theory of anthropogenic global warming when the existence of a scientific “consensus” creeps into the discussion. The implication being that a simple survey was distributed to scientists with but a single … Continue reading
How often have you heard a skeptic of man-made global warming dismiss current scientific conclusions regarding climate change by referencing a supposed consensus in the 1970s that the Earth was experiencing “global cooling”. The argument generally goes something like… “Thirty years ago, they were telling us we were going to freeze. Now they’re telling us … Continue reading
