Skip to comments.Engineer and aviation pioneer Burt Rutan on why he doubts global warming

This aired on WUWT.TV on November 14th in response to Al Gores dirty weather report. Engineer and aviation pioneer Burt Rutan gives his presentation on why he doesnt think global warming/climate change is a problem, by presenting the data that convinced him it is a non-issue from and engineering standpoint. Burt gets a bit fired up in this presentation, saying to me afterwards by email that it was fun!.

But aerospace engineer/climate expert Debbie Stabenow feels global warming when she flies. What does Rutan know. LOL
On what? Her broom?..............
The Amerimoron public is stupid beyond my ability to describe them. The Amerimorons have decided that “Climate change” is man made, it’s a religion, and requires faith.
Forget Christianity, we now have the church of liberalism.
There ain’t a broom built than can carry her fat ass. She rides a shop vac.
Sure there’s global warming. Ten thousand years ago there was a mile of ice on top of Central Park, now it’s gone. It melted due to global warming. That’s happened countless times before and will again. It’s called glaciation and it’s a normal part of this planets climate cycle. People are observers, not causes.
Once Debbie Stabacow has said it, what’s left to be said?
I’d put more faith in what Burt says, about anything than what Debbie says period.
...and besides, when was the last time you heard straight talk from a democrat?
...and why is that?
So many questions. So few answers.
There’s a thin skin of ice on the lake this morning.
There’s always Jesse Ventura who says he knows global warming is real because it gets hot in his car when he’s sitting in traffic.
Don’t argue with the geniuses!
I thought that Rutan died in a crash in the White Mountains?
>> “She rides a shop vac.” <<
How many engines?
Evidently he doesn’t know it yet.
Burt’s the best. Thanks for this post.
“Liberalism” is simply the political expression of the religion of Humanism, which began with the lie “you will be as gods”.
The earth has warmed and cooled hundreds of times in the 4.3 billion years it has been around. What’s new ?
Belief in God is one thing, and belief in religion is another.
The same folks who spend extra to buy organic because it’s “natural” can’t quite come to terms with the notion that the same glaciation process that brought us countless ice ages before is completely natural. If it’s going to freeze and then thaw, we will have to be in either a warming phase of the cycle or a cooling phase. Given a choice, I’d pick warming so no complaints from me.
Don’t let them weasel by changing Global Warming into Global Climate Change.
Burt Rutan is alive and well.
The above website address is a report in pdf form that suggests large man-made bodies of fresh water (dam reservoirs)around the World are a major cause of changing weather patterns, temperatures and rainfall rates. From what I understand, climatologists are not involved in or support this study, probably because it doesn't fit with their political agenda of taxing the population for carbon use. This work was performed by hydrologists aka...real scientists. When you look at lists of the largest dams in the world and add up their water capacities of volume and surface areas, the totals are incredible when compared to something like the Great Lakes which have been affected by reduced rainfall and water runoff from the Great Lakes Basin in the past several years. The only problem with reservoirs causing changes in weather patterns is that it would take another world war to fix it...nobody wants to give up their dams, reservoirs or water without a huge fight. Most of us here, including myself believe that the weather patterns of today are part of multi-year cycle, like what caused the weather patterns during the Dust Bowl days. This concept of displaced fresh water(measured in cubic kilometers) being the cause of climate change is so much more believable than carbon emissions (measured in parts per million.
I believe you are thinking of Steve Fossett who crashed in 2007.
The wannabee masters of the world want the peons to behave and live in a certain way so they make up a Boogeyman to scare the ignorant into compliance.
It's all about power, absolute power.
Since it is all a farce to begin with they can come back 20 years from now and claim that they saved the Earth.
Then, they can come up with the next Boogeyman!
U R right!
Fossett was who I was thinking of.
Hopefully he won’t find out for a long time :o)
Yet another reason why Burt is one of my biggest heroes.
