Scientists respond to Gore's warnings of climate catastrophe
"The Inconvenient Truth" is indeed inconvenient to alarmists
"Scientists have an independent obligation to respect and present the truth as they see it," Al Gore sensibly asserts in his film "An Inconvenient Truth", showing at Cumberland 4 Cinemas in Toronto since Jun 2. With that outlook in mind, what do world climate experts actually think about the science of his movie?
Professor Bob Carter of the Marine Geophysical Laboratory at James Cook University, in Australia gives what, for many Canadians, is a surprising assessment: "Gore's circumstantial arguments are so weak that they are pathetic. It is simply incredible that they, and his film, are commanding public attention." But surely Carter is merely part of what most people regard as a tiny cadre of "climate change skeptics" who disagree with the "vast majority of scientists" Gore cites? No; Carter is one of hundreds of highly qualified non-governmental, non-industry, non-lobby group climate experts who contest the hypothesis that human emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) are causing significant global climate change.
"Climate experts" is the operative term here. Why? Because what Gore's "majority of scientists" think is immaterial when only a very small fraction of them actually work in the climate field... (click link above to read on)

Indeed he is.
Kudos for posting this graphic. It will help readers visualize what a colossal blunder ALGORE is propagating!
Once again, I'm reminded of the disaster we barely escaped in the 2000 Presidential election.
Jack Bull and Boot Hill... I just like the sound of those screen names, that's all... Of course my favorite is tubularbender person!!!
It won't work in that respect, but it will unfortunately help continue to charade of human-caused catastrophic climate change.
You mean you didn't die in the great swine fle epidemic of 1975?
I thought this was the best line in the article. How do you like my highlighted bold text?
Al, go to the bathroom. You've had too much iced tea.
My favourite too.
Someone recently gave me a pointer to a website that discusses the non-circular orbit of the earth around the sun. Apparently it is not only elliptical, but the shape of the ellipse changes from roundish to longish on a period that is coincidental with the global warming periods. The rounder, the warmer, the more elliptical, the cooler. I will try to find that link and add it to my postings on GW in the future.
THAT makes more sense to me.
Ironically, I think C02 production could be our *salvation* in the next cooling cycle if we can actually affect global C02 enough to stabilize the temperature.
The length of the year is now measured to very small error. If the radius of the orbit were changing to that extent it would be glaringly obvious. I find all these wobbles to be mysterious, although the precession of the nodes can be calculated from either Newtonian mechanics or relativistic mechanics. There should be an obvious cause of the various wobbles, especially ones that affect the characteristics of earth's orbit itself.
