Posted on 12/27/2007 3:26:02 PM PST by CedarDave
New scientists have come forth and been added to list of scientists who say global warming and cooling is a cycle of nature and cannot legitimately be connected to mans activities. In addition, there is a whole new section on inconvenenient studies for promoters of man-made climate fears.
The expanded list includes Dr. Klaus P. Heiss formerly of Princeton University and Mathematica, and a space engineer who has worked with NASA, the US Atomic Energy Commission and the Office of Naval Research. Heiss received the NASA Public Service award for unique contributions to the US Space Program and is a member of the International Astronautics Academy. Heiss dissented from what he termed the alleged climate catastrophe in 2007.
Physical chemist Dr. Peter Stilbs, who chairs the Department of Physical Chemistry at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm has authored more than 165 scientific publications in refereed journals since 1970. Stilbs coordinated a meeting of international scientists and declared his skepticism about man-made climate fears. Stilbs wrote on December 21, 2006, By the final panel discussion stage of the conference, there appeared to be wide agreement about several key points regarding man-made climate fears. Stilbs announced that the scientists, concluded: There is no strong evidence to prove significant human influence on climate on a global basis. The global cooling trend from 1940 to 1970 is inconsistent with models based on anthropogenic carbon dioxide emissions. Actual claims put forward are that an observed global temperature increase of about 0.3 degrees C since 1970 exceeds what could be expected from natural variation. However, recent temperature data do not indicate any continued global warming since 1998. Stilbs also noted, There is no reliable evidence to support that the 20th century was the warmest in the last 1000 years. Previous claims based on the Mann hockey-stick curve are by now totally discredited. Stilbs concluded by noting that the team of international scientists concluded: There is no doubt that the science behind the climate issue is far from settled.
Meteorologist Thomas B. Gray is the former head of the Space Services branch at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and a researcher in NOAAs Space Environment Laboratory and Environmental Research Laboratories. Gray also served as a meteorologist for the United States Air Force. Gray asserted that climate change is a natural occurrence and dissented from the view that mankind faces a climate crisis in 2007. Nothing that is occurring in weather or in climate research at this time can be shown to be abnormal in the light of our knowledge of climate variations over geologic time, Gray explained. I am sure that the concept of a Global Temperature is nonsense, he added. The claims of those convinced that AGW (anthropogenic global warming) is real and dangerous are not supported by reliable data, Gray concluded.

Another good one...
New!!: Dr. John Ray's
Ping me if you find one I've missed.
Just out of curiosity, is there any reputable scientist (other than Al Gore) who believes that global warming IS caused by man?
Al Gore is not a scientist, let alone reputable.
But what about the "consensus?" Maybe Al Gore and his band of lunatics forgot to contact some real scientists to find out what is going on. We will eventually see the real "inconvenient truth" published by some very reluctant media writers.
Algore and the Global Warming(TM) zealots are truly a fascinating study of modern propaganda.
Also, Algore and the Global Warming(TM) Zealots seems like a good name for a garage band. Just putting it out there.
Just remember - only idiots believe in global warming.
If al bore would spend as much time and effort with his family as he does promoting himself maybe his son would not have as much trouble as he has now.
Oh well, I suppose al has his own ideas which is more important. So sad.
Al Gore’s education consists of dropping out of divinity school and Yale.
More scientists and a whole new section have been added to the Senate report on global warming. Fun!
I thought he washed out of Divinity School. Something about funny cigarettes?
