Who are the Deniers?

Who are the Deniers?

by Dr Gordon J Fulks

Global Warmers are forever calling those of us who disagree with them 'Deniers.' This thinly veiled reference to the Holocaust and the murder of six million people is far from appropriate. Do Skeptics deny the Holocaust and the science? Of course not, but it brings up an interesting question:

Who denies natural climate change?
  • Who denies the importance of variable solar irradiance and the possible importance of solar modulation of galactic cosmic rays?
  • Who denies that our Sun is a variable star?
  • Who denies that our oceans contain the vast majority of mobile heat on this planet and therefore dominate our climate, year to year and decade to decade?
  • Who denies the importance of natural ocean cycles like the Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO), discovered by researchers studying salmon?
  • Who denies clear cyclical variations in our climate, easily traceable to ocean cycles?
  • Who denies that our recent warming commenced about 1830, long before significant burning of fossil fuels?
  • Who denies that ice core data clearly show that recent warming is consistent with previous warm periods, like the Medieval, Roman, and Minoan?
  • Who denies that CO2 lags temperature in the ice core data by as much as 800 years and hence is a product of climate change not a cause?
  • Who denies 150 years of chemical measurements of atmospheric CO2 that suggest that ice core reconstructions of past CO2 concentrations are low by 60 ppm?
  • Who denies that the global temperature went down for three decades after World War II, despite significant increases in human emissions of CO2 due to industrialization?
  • Who denies that water vapor is the primary greenhouse gas and by far the dominant climate gas, not CO2?
  • Who denies that increasing CO2 is a substantial benefit to plants and therefore helps us feed the seven billion people on this planet?
  • Who denies that our oceans are alkaline not acidic and can never turn acidic because of buffering?
  • Who denies that the EPA's three "Lines of Evidence" supporting their Endangerment Finding on CO2 are all fatally flawed?
  • Who denies the leveling off of the Global Temperature for the past 15 years?
  • Who denies that the 'Hotspot' (required by Global Warming theory) does not exist in the tropical troposphere?
  • Who denies that all 73 computerized climate models are epic failures?
  • Who denies that theories which fail validation tests are dead?
  • Who denies the supremacy of evidence over theory?
  • Who denies the supremacy of logic and evidence over authority and consensus?
  • Who denies that Extreme Weather has always been with us and cannot be traced to CO2? 
  • Who denies that the Climategate e-mails showed fundamental cheating by those scientists promoting Global Warming?
  • Who denies that many prominent scientists oppose climate hysteria?
In short, who denies both the science and the scientific method?

  1. very well said. we have climate scientists in New Zealand who are pushing co2 warming who deny that the medieval warming period ever happened and are saying that the deniers have made it up refer to jim salinger

  2. Who denies, or rather completely ignores, the role of benthic volcanism in driving ocean circulation. 4 of 5 volcanoes occur underwater. It follows that, on average we would expect 8 eruptions of the scale of Tombora and Krakatoa to have occurred in the last 200 years, i.e. roughly one every 25 years. Such eruptions would be capable of overturning entire ocean basins. No-one is modeling this or even discussing this. Central American drought which wiped out the Maya has been attributed to meridional overturning of the North Atlantic. Could this in turn be due to increased energy flux from the TAG hydrothermal vent field at 26N which currently puts out 1.6 Gigawatt? Could the Galapagos upwelling, which is pumping CO2 into the atmosphere, be due to the formation of a new volcano at this well known hot-spot? The conventional Ekman pumping explanation cannot account for the extra iron found in these upwelled waters. I would like to write up a paper on this topic but where would I get it published?

  3. Who denies that our system on earth is so complex and self-correcting that a model of a singular nature has only luck as a chance of being correct. What is the amount of sedimentary material that has been discharged into the oceans by erosion mechansisms and how much should the oceans have risen over the last 1000 years by simple displacement if it is assumed as a constant? The simple minded will propose that they have the answer regardless of facts against such an assertion.

  4. this post is very nice and I am very happy to visit at this blog
    Jual Obat Bius say many thanks to you who have shared quality articles Greetings and good luck and good health

  5. Who denies that - after around 20 years of hearing that skeptic climate scientists are paid by the fossil fuel industry to lie about global warming - the collective group of people pushing this accusation have not yet produced a shred of evidence proving a quid pro quo arrangement exists between those skeptics and industry officials?
