The Global Warming Alarmists and the Damage They Are Causing

A list of links to information questioning and debunking alledged manmade global warming (climate change)

------------------

Below are links critisizing this hysteria and the science behind it.

The Climate Science Isn't Settled
Confident predictions of catastrophe are unwarranted.

Global Warming: The Origin and Nature of the Alleged Scientific Consensus by Richard S. Lindzen

------------------

Lars Kamel believes that rising temperatures cause increased levels of CO2 in the atmosphere. Global warming alarmists believe the cause and effect relationship is the other way around, ie. increased levels of CO2 cause a rise in the earth's temperature due to a greenhouse effect. CO2 becomes less soluble in water as the water temperature rises and may be released from the oceans as the earth's temperature rises.

Here's a quote from Lars Kamel's page noworry.htm

quote:
One argument which the alarmists use to back their claims, is that data from boreholes in the Antarctic ice show that temperature and CO2 correlate very well. What they don't tell the public, however, is that correlation does not prove causation. And, in fact, the cause is precisely the opposite of what the alarmist would like you to believe. In the past couple of years, new and better analysis of the Antarctic ice data, giving a better time resolution, have shown that first temperature rises, and then carbon dioxide levels increase. It is the temperature increase which causes the increase in carbon dioxide and not the other way around. The extra CO2 could at most add a little extra warming to what is going on, but not even that is certain.

Water Vapor Rules the Greenhouse System

Just how much of the "Greenhouse Effect" is caused by human activity?
It is about 0.28%, if water vapor is taken into account-- about 5.53%, if not.
This point is so crucial to the debate over global warming that how water vapor is or isn't factored into an analysis of Earth's greenhouse gases makes the difference between describing a significant human contribution to the greenhouse effect, or a negligible one.
Water vapor constitutes Earth's most significant greenhouse gas, accounting for about 95% of Earth's greenhouse effect (4). Interestingly, many "facts and figures' regarding global warming completely ignore the powerful effects of water vapor in the greenhouse system, carelessly (perhaps, deliberately) overstating human impacts as much as 20-fold.
Water vapor is 99.999% of natural origin. Other atmospheric greenhouse gases, carbon dioxide (CO2), methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), and miscellaneous other gases (CFC's, etc.), are also mostly of natural origin (except for the latter, which is mostly anthropogenic).
Human activites contribute slightly to greenhouse gas concentrations through farming, manufacturing, power generation, and transportation. However, these emissions are so dwarfed in comparison to emissions from natural sources we can do nothing about, that even the most costly efforts to limit human emissions would have a very small-- perhaps undetectable-- effect on global climate.

Senator James Inhofe's web blog has numerous articles debunking man made global warming

------------------
What we find now is the fleecing of the American public's pocketbooks by the environmental movement for their political gain. We also find exhausting litigation, instigation of false claims, misleading science, and scare tactics to fool Americans into believing disastrous environmental scenarios that are untrue. Especially in this election year, the American voter should see these groups and their many affiliate organizations as they are: the newest insidious conspiracy of political action committees and perhaps the newest multi-million dollar manipulation of federal election laws.

Testimony of Roy W. Spencer before the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee on 22 July 2008 (pdf format)

quote:
"during the Clinton-Gore Administration I was told what I could and could not say during congressional testimony. Since it was well known that I am skeptical of the view that mankind�s greenhouse gas emissions are mostly responsible for global warming, I assumed that this advice was to help protect Vice President Gore�s agenda on the subject."

IPCC Caught Producing False Data To Push Global Warming
------------------

"The common enemy of humanity is man. In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy then, is humanity itself." - Club of Rome, premier environmental think-tank consultants to the United Nations

Global Warming Petition Project

31,072 American scientists have signed this petition, including 9,021 with PhDs

We urge the United States government to reject the global warming agreement that was written in Kyoto, Japan in December, 1997, and any other similar proposals. The proposed limits on greenhouse gases would harm the environment, hinder the advance of science and technology, and damage the health and welfare of mankind.

There is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth's atmosphere and disruption of the Earth's climate. Moreover, there is substantial scientific evidence that increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide produce many benficial effects upon the natural plant and animal environments of the Earth.
