Physics professor and climate change expert Dr. Christopher Keating is offering a $30,000 reward to anyone who can disprove that man-made climate change is real.
Keating, a professor of two decades at the University of South Dakota and U.S. Naval Academy, has challenged climate change skeptics to prove that man-made global warming is not real. Keating is prepared to offer $30,000 of his own money for the Global Warming Skeptic Challenge, which has an application deadline of July 31.
I have heard global warming skeptics make all sorts of statements about how the science doesnt support claims of man-made climate change, Keating announced on his blog. I have found all of those statements to be empty and without any kind of supporting evidence. I have, in turn, stated that it is not possible for the skeptics to prove their claims. And, Im willing to put my money where my mouth is.

$30grand to argue with a fencepost. The fencepost will tell you when you have won.
Proving a negative!
What an ass.
He should have to prove his hypothesis. Their data has already been taken apart like LEGO. An empty and cheap trick designed to get media coverage. The ‘judge’ for this will be global warming zealots who are hysterically convinced of their own manipulated data.
Funny - that's exactly the case with Dr. Keating's position.
I think dr Keating should look up logical fallacies.
look to other planets. has their temperature changed? have their ice caps melted (ie: mars)
if yes, the source of any increased surface temperature is the sun
and since mars ice caps have been melting since the 70s... QED
where’s my money?
“Keating himself will be the sole judge of submissions “
What would be interesting is if Congress would mandate that no US-paid weather station could not be within half-a-mile of any concrete or asphalt structure. This would force the relocation of almost every single site put up since the 1940s. It would also change overnight the data collected once the new sites were put up and everyone would asking if there was some correlation between urbanization and heat....which the heat-sink-collection concept would finally dawn on folks.
They install these stations on the tops of buildings, etc. where the HVAC blower systems are located. No wonder their data are skewed.
I’ll take that $30k in cash please, -— Mr Coleman will get his share, I promise.... Yeah, yeah, that’s the ticket!
Not to mention the heat generated by most dark-colored roofing material.
‘Climate change’ is true because it hasn’t been proven false? Argument ad ignoratio, or ‘arguing from ignorance.’ Disproving a negative.
Our star burns more fuel in one second than has been burned on Earth since we swung down from the trees. It’s an impossible bet and he knows it.
Can someone offer, say, $31,000 for prof Keating to disprove the existence of God?
hello Mr. Physicist, it doesn’t work that way. you are supposed to prove, everyone is aware there are problems proving a negative
I offer a 200 reward for Keating to prove he has never molested children when no one was watching.
He’s using rising utility bills as proof of man made global warming? That’s not just plain stupid, it’s elaborately stupid.
Yes to what you both said. The huge elephant in the room. Cities with row after row of homes with asphalt roofs and concrete roads and driveways. OF COURSE that will collect heat and discharge it.
Maybe we start a project here at FR to show this.
Go out say 5 miles or so into areas that are grass and trees. I would say being 5 miles away from an urban heat sink would be fair. This would be close to the conditions of how temps would have been measured 100 years ago or so.
Set up temperature measuring stations.
Then just compare those readings to what is officially being reported.
A difference could then be calculated. That difference would then need to subtracted from any “warming” the yahoos are calculating when comparing to conditions 100 years ago.
Can I have my Nobel Prize now?
