Posted on 09/12/2007 2:42:07 PM PDT by Cardhu
A new analysis of peer-reviewed literature reveals that more than 500 scientists have published evidence refuting at least one element of current man-made global warming scares. More than 300 of the scientists found evidence that 1) a natural moderate 1,500-year climate cycle has produced more than a dozen global warmings similar to ours since the last Ice Age and/or that 2) our Modern Warming is linked strongly to variations in the sun's irradiance. "This data and the list of scientists make a mockery of recent claims that a scientific consensus blames humans as the primary cause of global temperature increases since 1850," said Hudson Institute Senior Fellow Dennis Avery.
Other researchers found evidence that 3) sea levels are failing to rise importantly; 4) that our storms and droughts are becoming fewer and milder with this warming as they did during previous global warmings; 5) that human deaths will be reduced with warming because cold kills twice as many people as heat; and 6) that corals, trees, birds, mammals, and butterflies are adapting well to the routine reality of changing climate.
Despite being published in such journals such as Science, Nature and Geophysical Review Letters, these scientists have gotten little media attention. "Not all of these researchers would describe themselves as global warming skeptics," said Avery, "but the evidence in their studies is there for all to see."
The names were compiled by Avery and climate physicist S. Fred Singer, the co-authors of the new book Unstoppable Global Warming: Every 1,500 Years, mainly from the peer-reviewed studies cited in their book. The researchers' specialties include tree rings, sea levels, stalagmites, lichens, pollen, plankton, insects, public health, Chinese history and astrophysics.
"We have had a Greenhouse Theory with no evidence to support it-except a moderate warming turned into a scare by computer models whose results have never been verified with real-world events," said co-author Singer. "On the other hand, we have compelling evidence of a real-world climate cycle averaging 1470 years (plus or minus 500) running through the last million years of history. The climate cycle has above all been moderate, and the trees, bears, birds, and humans have quietly adapted."
"Two thousand years of published human histories say that the warm periods were good for people," says Avery. "It was the harsh, unstable Dark Ages and Little Ice Age that brought bigger storms, untimely frost, widespread famine and plagues of disease." "There may have been a consensus of guesses among climate model-builders," says Singer. "However, the models only reflect the warming, not its cause." He noted that about 70 percent of the earth's post-1850 warming came before 1940, and thus was probably not caused by human-emitted greenhouse gases. The net post-1940 warming totals only a tiny 0.2 degrees C.
The historic evidence of the natural cycle includes the 5000-year record of Nile floods, 1st-century Roman wine production in Britain, and thousands of museum paintings that portrayed sunnier skies during the Medieval Warming and more cloudiness during the Little Ice Age. The physical evidence comes from oxygen isotopes, beryllium ions, tiny sea and pollen fossils, and ancient tree rings. The evidence recovered from ice cores, sea and lake sediments, cave stalagmites and glaciers has been analyzed by electron microscopes, satellites, and computers. Temperatures during the Medieval Warming Period on California's Whitewing Mountain must have been 3.2 degrees warmer than today, says Constance Millar of the U.S. Forest Service, based on her study of seven species of relict trees that grew above today's tree line.
Singer emphasized, "Humans have known since the invention of the telescope that the earth's climate variations were linked to the sunspot cycle, but we had not understood how. Recent experiments have demonstrated that more or fewer cosmic rays hitting the earth create more or fewer of the low, cooling clouds that deflect solar heat back into space-amplifying small variations in the intensity of the sun.
Avery and Singer noted that there are hundreds of additional peer-reviewed studies that have found cycle evidence, and that they will publish additional researchers' names and studies. They also noted that their book was funded by Wallace O. Sellers, a Hudson board member, without any corporate contributions.

I do and it just proves that fat Al is in it for the money.
But, but, there is a consensus!
This needs a BTTT.
uh oh. don’t make AlGore get his slideshow going.
I.E. a paper on the population of a skunk-fish being improved by nutrient change x expected to be caused by GW, rather than inhibited, will include a statement that verbally endorses that GW is man-made and serious, without anything studied in the paper that is relevant to whether or not AGW exists.
lol, what happened to the 19th century?
The Gaia-worshippers said that there was scientific consensus. They just didn’t disclose that it was in favor of the other side....
Nearly every day now there are stories like this.
The fear mongering is failing.
....there is a consensus, that cannot be disputed....
Just ask what's her yap on the Weather Channel, she'll tell ya!
A new study is just in. There is now a consenus that Al Gore is a boob.
Ya mean this clown?
we see stories like this, but the MSM ignores anything that could arm the AGW fanatics. AGW is the evil left's scam to impose a totalitarian dictatorship and destroy capitalism. The left is winning with their lies about Global Warming. I am sure the evil anti-human freaks at realclimate are probably disputing this today. AGW will likely turn out to be the greatest fraud in human history. If Gore and his ilk have their way, civilization will be destroyed (to their happiness)
since learning of this freaks fraudulent claims, the Weather channel has not been viewed in my household. She is another evil leftist.
Thanks for the name refresh....I'll have to work on my GIGO filter.
Oh of course the MSM will not cover it.
That is our job to point out the FACTS and scream them to high heaven everywhere we can.
Scientific process includes rigorously challenging theorys, the “warm mongerers” cannot avoid that no matter how hard they try. It will find them.
blasphemers!!! to the pyre!!!
But your pic left out year 2000. That would be a “G” string, I think.
Global Warming is a reality, the only thing up for debate is the cause.
Most likely the true answer is it is a combination of several different factors.
Yup, the sun, the sun, and ummmmmm...let's see...oh...the sun.
The last year of the 19th century was 1900.
But . . . but . . . . but . . . according to Fat Albert (Goreon) and the UN’s IPCC, there is a CONSENSUS of scientists agreeing that global warming is caused by (North American) human activity!!!!!
How is it possible for the likes of the goreon and the IPCC to be wrong!!??
HERETICS! BURN THEM AT THE STEAK!
Global Warming Ping...
DOH! That’s “stake” not steak.
Thanks for the ping.
New!!: Dr. John Ray's
Ping me if you find one I've missed.
No there are other factors that help increase the problem, but my definition without the sun - it would be -200 below zero or less here on the earth.
SCENARIO: The United States and other “industralized” nations are suffering through an industry-hostile era, wherein producing widgets and gadgets is virtually punishable by law, to the point all widgets and gadgets are made in developing and rogue states.
QUESTION: What do the profit-oriented do to survive?
ANSWERS: Create a crisis (AGW). Invent a convenient solution (Tax carbon emission via carbon credits). Profer the solution. Lobby the solution into writ. Profit from the solution.
Could the clan AGW believers be determined financially exploit each pore on every carbon-based creature in the world?
Al Gore allegedly owns a carbon credit trading brokerage, or has some strange influence over it. Mary Nichols , an alleged progenitor of emission credits and California bureaucrat, has a vested interest is more than a dozen energy companies, and she’s married to a lawyer who does work for Exxon-Mobil.
Oil companies, public utilities and the largest manufacturers love the AGW idea. They now have a way to profit from on a global scale. And you and I will be forced to pay for it.
The AGW context is, indeed, the greatest fraud in modern human history.
