Scientists respond to Gore’s warnings of climate catastrophe

“Scientists have an independent obligation to respect and present the truth as they see it,” Al Gore sensibly asserts in his film “An Inconvenient Truth”. With that outlook in mind, what do world climate experts actually think about the science of his movie?

Professor Bob Carter of the Marine Geophysical Laboratory at James Cook University, in Australia gives what, for many, is a surprising assessment: “Gore’s circumstantial arguments are so weak that they are pathetic. It is simply incredible that they, and his film, are commanding public attention.”

But surely Carter is merely part of what most people regard as a tiny cadre of “climate change skeptics” who disagree with the “vast majority of scientists” Gore cites?

No; Carter is one of hundreds of highly qualified non-governmental, non-industry, non-lobby group climate experts who contest the hypothesis that human emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) are causing significant global climate change.

“Climate experts” is the operative term here.

Why? Because what Gore’s “majority of scientists” think is immaterial when only a very small fraction of them actually work in the climate field.

  1. Hey Bob, just thought I’d point you to this as well. It is a study of the Global Warming of Mars.

    What? Mars? Global Warming? Yes, minus the SUVs and Big Oil!

    Where’s Al Gore? How in the [world] can he explain that Mars is also undergoing global climate change, despite the lack of a single human being ever setting foot on the planet? Perhaps this gives us a strong indication that planets with atmospheres naturally change, due to chemical changes, as well as changes in relation to the Sun.

    I was laughing so hard when I stumbled across that interesting piece from NASA scientists!

  2. Yes! That’s It!

    Quick, how do we get a hold of Al Gore? We have to make sure that he includes this in his anti-capitalist propaganda.

    Down with America!“, said Gore, in his best impression of an Al Sharpton sermon.
