The Truth Steps Forward

There are many articles like this one finally giving us the other voices concerning man made climate change. He quotes from this British paper’s (it seems that British reporters are the only ones following the story) story. Here is a quote:

Now, though, we’re wondering if this was too charitable a view. London’s Sunday Times reports that scientists are "casting doubt" on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s "claim that global temperatures are rising inexorably because of human pollution," a claim the IPCC describes as "unequivocal":

"The temperature records cannot be relied on as indicators of global change," said John Christy, professor of atmospheric science at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, a former lead author on the IPCC.

The doubts of Christy and a number of other researchers focus on the thousands of weather stations around the world, which have been used to collect temperature data over the past 150 years.

These stations, they believe, have been seriously compromised by factors such as urbanisation, changes in land use and, in many cases, being moved from site to site.

Christy has published research papers looking at these effects in three different regions: east Africa, and the American states of California and Alabama.

"The story is the same for each one," he said. "The popular data sets show a lot of warming but the apparent temperature rise was actually caused by local factors affecting the weather stations, such as land development."

 

Many articles are now referencing the interview with Phil Jones the highest voice of authority now changing voices. Here are a few questions and answers:

B – Do you agree that from 1995 to the present there has been no statistically-significant global warming

Yes, but only just.

N – When scientists say "the debate on climate change is over", what exactly do they mean – and what don’t they mean?

It would be supposition on my behalf to know whether all scientists who say the debate is over are saying that for the same reason. I don’t believe the vast majority of climate scientists think this. This is not my view.

Those that bought into man made global warming are not willing to entertain the notion of buyer’s remorse. On any given day you will find articles written affirming the truth of man made global warming with no evidence given and some reference to “all the experts”. The reason I have been following this debate is because I think it parallels what we will begin to see in the on going scientific debate about Darwinism and common descent. The ability to hide behind “all the experts agree” is becoming more and more difficult in the world we live in. The truth is out there if you are willing to look for it.
