Anthropogenic Global Warming: Myth or Reality?

Published by under Meetings

At our next meeting, on Friday 13 August, Hugh Thorpe will present a brief review of James Hansen’s recently published book: “Storms of my Grandchildren, the truth about the coming climate catastrophe and our last chance to save humanity.”

Ian Crumpton will outline the objections to this argument, raising sound scientific reasons that show “global warming” is a myth propagated by those, among others,  who seek a change in the power structures of our culture.

One response so far

    Climategate was forecast…

    I am absolutely certain of one thing. People in a position of trust have violated the principles of the scientific method. The minute you believe your own hypothesis, you are a dead duck as a scientist.

    “What is the current scientific consensus on the conclusions reached by Drs. Mann, Bradley and Hughes? [Referring to the hockey stick propagated in UN IPCC 2001 by Michael Mann and debunked by McIntyre and McKitrick in 2003.]

    Ans: Based on the literature we have reviewed, there is no overarching consensus on MBH98/99. As analyzed in our social network, there is a tightly knit group of individuals who passionately believe in their thesis. However, our perception is that this group has a self-reinforcing feedback mechanism and, moreover, the work has been sufficiently politicized that they can hardly reassess their public positions without losing credibility.”

    AD HOC COMMITTEE REPORT ON THE ‘HOCKEY STICK’ GLOBAL CLIMATE RECONSTRUCTION, also known as The Wegman report was authored by Edward J. Wegman, George Mason University, David W. Scott, Rice University, and Yasmin H. Said, The Johns Hopkins University with the contributions of John T. Rigsby, III, Naval Surface Warfare Center, and Denise M. Reeves, MITRE Corporation.
