He introduces his article by pointing out that certain parts of the United States had a warm summer.
John Coleman, the founder of The Weather Channel, and various other critics have called the theory that human use of carbon-based fossil fuels will lead to catastrophic global warming or climate change a “hoax.” It is, but it’s more than that, it’s criminal.Dr Hendrickson then details the core scientific questions:
- Is the climate changing?
- Is the earth getting warmer?
- Is the earth getting dangerously warm?
- Are we humans causing the warming by our carbon emissions?
- Who would lose if governments gain the power to order a significant reduction in CO2 emissions?
As discussed previously by this blog, the climate has always changed.
IS the Earth getting Warmer? Dr Hendrickson writes:
We should hope so for at least two reasons: First, the world emerged from the Little Ice Age in the 19th century, so it would be worrisome if it weren’t getting warmer. Second, all the history indicates that humans thrive more during warmer periods than colder ones.He then discusses whether the official records are correct and the effect of urban heat islands.
The most accurate measures of temperature come from satellites. Since the start of these measurements in 1979, they show minor fluctuations and an insignificant net change in global temperature.IS the earth getting dangerously warm?
Who would lose if governments gain the power to order a significant reduction in CO2 emissions?
