Not happening. I have been asked, ‘Are you arguing with science?” Well, here is some science.
This article by Mike van Biezen, a physics professor at Loyola Marymount University, full of facts and data, blows holes in the anthropogenic theory.
I can’t copy the whole article, but here are his major points:
Before we begin, let’s establish what we know to be correct. The global average temperature has increased since the 1980’s. Since the 1980’s glaciers around the world are receding and the ice cap of the Arctic Ocean has lost ice since the 1980’s, especially during the summer months. The average global temperature for the last 10 years is approximately 0.35 degrees centigrade higher than it was during the 1980’s. The global warming community has exploited these facts to “prove” that human activity (aka burning of fossil fuels) is the cause of these increasing temperatures. But no direct scientific proof or data has been shown that link the current observations to human activity. The link is assumed to be simply a fact, with no need to investigate or discuss any scientific data.
1. Temperature records from around the world do not support the assumption that today’s temperatures are unusual.
2. Satellite temperature data does not support the assumption that temperatures are rising rapidly.
3. Current temperatures are always compared to the temperatures of the 1980’s, but for many parts of the world the 1980’s was the coldest decade of the last 100+ years.
4. The world experienced a significant cooling trend between 1940 and 1980.
5. Urban heat island effect skews the temperature data of a significant number of weather stations.
6. There is a natural inverse relationship between global temperatures and atmospheric CO2 levels. [Not the other way around]
7. The CO2 cannot, from a scientific perspective, be the cause of significant global temperature changes.
8. There have been many periods during our recent history that a warmer climate was prevalent long before the industrial revolution.
9. Glaciers have been melting for more than 150 years. [The Exit Glacier, visited by President Obama this summer, has been receding for 200 years]
10. “Data adjustment” is used to continue the perception of global warming.
Please read his discussion of each of these points, and take a look at the charts at the end. I especially like the discussion of point number 7.
