New Survey Finds Majority of Scientists Global Warming Skeptics

Forbes:  “It is becoming clear that not only do many scientists dispute the asserted global warming crisis, but these skeptical scientists may indeed form a scientific consensus.  Don’t look now, but maybe a scientific consensus exists concerning global warming after all. Only 36 percent of geoscientists and engineers believe that humans are creating a global warming crisis, according to a survey reported in the peer-reviewed Organization Studies. By contrast, a strong majority of the 1,077 respondents believe that nature is the primary cause of recent global warming and/or that future global warming will not be a very serious problem.

NASA Says Burning Fossil Fuels Cools Earth

Express:  “BURNING fossil fuels and cutting down trees causes global COOLING, a shock new NASA study has found.  Major theories about what causes temperatures to rise have been thrown into doubt after NASA found the Earth has cooled in areas of heavy industrialization where more trees have been lost and more fossil fuel burning takes place.”

Georgia Tech Prof Expelled from Global Warming Fraternity for Asking Questions

The Spectator:  “For engaging with skeptics, and discussing uncertainties in projections frankly, this Georgia professor [Judith Curry] is branded a heretic. It is safe to predict that when 20,000 world leaders, officials, green activists and hangers-on convene in Paris next week for the 21st United Nations climate conference, one person you will not see much quoted is Professor Judith Curry. This is a pity. Her record of peer-reviewed publication in the best climate-science journals is second to none, and in America she has become a public intellectual. But on this side of the Atlantic, apparently, she is too ‘challenging’. What is troubling about her pariah status is that her trenchant critique of the supposed consensus on global warming is not derived from warped ideology, let alone funding by fossil-fuel firms, but from solid data and analysis.  Some consider her a heretic. According to Professor Michael Mann of Pennsylvania State University, a vociferous advocate of extreme measures to prevent a climatic Armageddon, she is ‘anti-science’. Curry isn’t fazed by the slur.”

Climate Change Will Not Be Dangerous for a Long Time

Scientific American: “The climate change debate has been polarized into a simple dichotomy. Either global warming is ‘real, man-made and dangerous,’ as Pres. Barack Obama thinks, or it’s a ‘hoax,’ as Oklahoma Sen. James Inhofe thinks. But there is a third possibility: that it is real, man-made and not dangerous, at least not for a long time.  This ‘lukewarm’ option has been boosted by recent climate research, and if it is right, current policies may do more harm than good.”

97% of Americans Aren’t Worried about Global Warming

The Daily Caller:  “While 97 percent of scientists may agree mankind is driving global warming, 97 percent of Americans don’t seem to care about the issue when stacked up against other concerns such as terrorism or the economy, according to a recent Fox News poll.  A November Fox News poll of more than 1,000 registered voters found that only 3 percent listed “climate change” as the most important issue facing the country today, down from 5 percent in August. Americans were much more worried about terrorism, the economy and immigration than global warming.”

Top Scientists Demolish Alarmism Behind UN Climate Summit

The Daily Caller: “A panel of prominent scientists debunked one of the most popular global warming arguments ahead of a major United Nations climate summit to take place in Paris later this month.  The scientists slammed policies to reduce carbon dioxide emissions as “nonsense,” and they criticized politicians and activists for claiming the world was on the path for catastrophic global warming.”

Nonsense: Top Scientists Demolish Alarmism Behind UN Climate Summit

The Daily Caller:  “A panel of prominent scientists debunked one of the most popular global warming arguments ahead of a major United Nations climate summit to take place in Paris later this month.  The scientists slammed policies to reduce carbon dioxide emissions as ‘nonsense,‘ and they criticized politicians and activists for claiming the world was on the path for catastrophic global warming.  ‘The most important thing to keep in mind is — when you ask ‘is it warming, is it cooling’, etc.  — is that we are talking about something tiny (temperature changes) and that is the crucial point,’ Dr. Richard Lindzen, a veteran climate scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.”

ABC Predicts NY City Under Water by June 2015

ABC News:  “NYC Under Water from Climate Change By June 2015.  New York City underwater? Gas over $9 a gallon? A carton of milk costs almost $13? Welcome to June 12, 2015. Or at least that was the wildly-inaccurate version of 2015 predicted by ABC News exactly seven years ago. The segment included supposedly prophetic videos, such as a teenager declaring, “It’s June 8th, 2015. One carton of milk is $12.99.” (On the actual June 8, 2015, a gallon of milk cost, on average, $3.39.) Another clip featured this prediction for the current year: “Gas reached over $9 a gallon.” (In reality, gas costs an average of $2.75.)”

NOAA Fiddles with Climate Data to Erase 15-Year Global Warming ‘Hiatus’

The Daily Caller:  “National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration scientists have found a solution to the 15-year ‘pause’ in global warming: They ‘adjusted’ the hiatus in warming out of the temperature record.  New climate data by NOAA scientists doubles the warming trend since the late 1990s by adjusting pre-hiatus temperatures downward and inflating temperatures in more recent years.  Newly corrected and updated global surface temperature data from NOAA’s [National Centers for Environmental Information] do not support the notion of a global warming ‘hiatus,’ wrote NOAA scientists in their study presenting newly adjusted climate data.  To increase the rate in warming, NOAA scientists put more weight on certain ocean buoy arrays, adjusted ship-based temperature readings upward, and slightly raised land-based temperatures as well.”

Record Ice in Antartic

The Guardian:  “Antarctica’s increasing sea ice restricting access to research stations.  Scientists are in Tasmania for workshops on how to accurately forecast sea ice levels in the polar region, aiming to ease access and reduce shipping costs.  Sea ice around Antarctica is currently at record levels for May, part of a trend of increasing ice around the frozen continent making it harder to resupply and refuel research stations.”
