Dr. Patrick Moore explains why AGW/CC is not merely nonsense, but dangerous, anti-human nonsense:
I am skeptical humans are the main cause of climate change and that
it will be catastrophic in the near future. There is no scientific proof
of this hypothesis, yet we are told “the debate is over” and “the
science is settled.”
My skepticism begins with the believers’ certainty they can predict
the global climate with a computer model. The entire basis for the
doomsday climate change scenario is the hypothesis increased atmospheric
carbon dioxide due to fossil fuel emissions will heat the Earth to
In fact, the Earth has been warming very gradually for 300 years,
since the Little Ice Age ended, long before heavy use of fossil fuels.
Prior to the Little Ice Age, during the Medieval Warm Period, Vikings
colonized Greenland and Newfoundland, when it was warmer there than
today. And during Roman times, it was warmer, long before fossil fuels
revolutionized civilization. The idea it would be catastrophic if carbon dioxide were to increase
and average global temperature were to rise a few degrees is
Recently, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)
announced for the umpteenth time we are doomed unless we reduce
carbon-dioxide emissions to zero. Effectively this means either reducing
the population to zero, or going back 10,000 years before humans began
clearing forests for agriculture. This proposed cure is far worse than
adapting to a warmer world, if it actually comes about.
No one who buys into the AGW/CC scam should be taken any more seriously than an economist who “invests” in a Ponzi scheme. AGW/CC is scientific fraud, it is historical ignorance, and it is political ideology. I’ve been saying this for years now, and every single piece of information that has come out since has strongly supported that contention.
