Hmmmm, the link to the study doesn't work. It took a while but I found it on
the UAB website. |
It turns out
that these are the three guys left who don't believe that humans are causing
global warming and that it will have disastrous consequences for the planet.
They say other scientists agree with them, but they can't seem to remember any of
The author from UAB, John Christy, does appear to actually have the chops to
comment on this.
The study concludes that predictions
of the effects global warming are overstated.
"If these results continue to be
future projections of temperature change, as depicted in
the present suite of climate models, are likely too high."
used data from 1979 forward.
There was nothing in the study resembling the
following statement: "The report dismisses attempts to reverse global warming by
reducing carbon emissions as ineffective and pointless."
However, Christy did say the following in a recent interview:
scientifically inconceivable that after changing forests into
cities, turning millions of acres into irrigated farmland, putting
massive quantities of soot and dust into the air, and putting extra
greenhouse gases into the air, that the natural course of climate has
not changed in some way."
He is considered a lonely holdout among respected
scientists in doubting predictions of catastrophic consequences due to global
I suspect his background as a preacher might influence this, what with
man's god-given dominion over the planet and all that.
The publication is from an old club of amateur weather watchers, and even
then, no evidence they agree with the study.
Here's another one of the
authors, whose resume includes being a paid toadie for the tobacco industry
(wonder how he got that job at
U.Va.?) and apologist for other polluters:
BTW, couldn't find any evidence he is still actually associated with U.
David Douglass appears to come to conclusions before embarking on his
studies, and has long been a skeptic dedicated to debunking claims of man's
contribution to global
Neither of these guys
are specialists in this area. They are both physicists, both with undergrad
degrees in electrical engineering. Neither have particularly distinguished
themselves, other than in their ability to get press coverage.
Prison Planet is hardly an objective resource, and their link to the original
UPI story was invalid. I did find find variations on the story at a few other
right-wing propaganda websites.
But, I know you
want to believe them.

"The Hell", you say.
Study Says Global Warming Is Natural Diligo ergo sum
Attempts to reduce CO2
emissions "pointless" as sun is cited as climate change culprit
The so-called scientific consensus that global warming is man-made has
been shattered with the release of a major new study backed by three universities
which concludes that climate change over the past thirty years
is explained by natural factors and that attempts to reduce carbon dioxide
emissions are irrelevant.
Climate scientists at the University of Rochester,
the University of Alabama, and the University of Virginia report that temperature
fluctuations over the past three decades are not consistent with greenhouse model
predictions and more closely correlate with solar activity.
The report dismisses attempts to reverse global warming by reducing carbon
emissions as ineffective and pointless.
