In , astrophysicist S. Fred Singer probes the literature on climate change and lays out the scientific case against the likelihood of an imminent, catastrophic global warming. Theoretical computer models to the contrary, man-made global warming has not been documented. But even if it were to occur, the evidence suggests that it would largely be benign and may even improve human well-being, Singer argues.
The IPCC also claimed its referenced studies were all peer-reviewed by experts. In reality, at least 30% were not; many were prepared by graduate students or activist groups; and some of its most attention-getting claims (of rapidly melting Himalayan glaciers, for example) were nothing more than brief email messages noting that these were “possible” outcomes. Moreover, most IPCC peer reviewers were scientists who fervently promote catastrophic manmade climate change perspectives, receive government and other grants for writing reports confirming this thesis, and take turns reviewing one another’s papers.
Natural and Man-Made Causes of Global Warming - …
But despite the man-made global warming fear movement’s clarion call of alarm, many scientists are dismissing the 400ppm level of carbon dioxide as a non-event. Scientists point out that there are literally that govern Earth’s climate and temperature – not just CO2. Renowned or even would not have major impacts on the Earth’s climate or temperature.
For instance, after storm surges from caused extensive damage to New York City, NY (USA) in October 2012, it convinced the Mayor of New York City, Mike Bloomberg that man-made global warming is real and that we should immediately reduce our carbon dioxide emissions:As another example, U.K. Prime Minister, David Cameron, has claimed that the November 2013 , which caused catastrophic destruction to the central Philippines was related to man-made global warming:In 2000, a group of meteorologists concluded, on the basis of computer weather modeling, that there is less than 2 percent chance that the observed changes in sea ice across the entire Arctic could be the result of natural causes alone (Rizzuto 2001). For a long time, it had been debated how much of the warming trends being observed in the Arctic region are attributable to industrialization. But in the recent years there has been mounting evidence indicating that global warming is indeed happening for man-made reasons. Global warming presents us with a scenario of gradually escalating crisis, which can eventually, and literally, sink our world — through the melting of polar ice caps. The arctic polar ice cap is melting and has thinned by over an astounding 45 percent in the last four decades (Jacobsen and Riebel 2002).The preponderance of global climate change is not manmade. While there are certainly manmade contributions to climate change that must be reckoned with, the fact remains that climate change is an inevitable and natural part of the atmosphere's existence. There are things about the earth that we still know very little about. We have barely begun to scratch the surface of understanding the incalculable natural atmospheric transitions of the earth over millions of years between major ice-age, mini-ice age, and back to warming trends. Yet, in spite of our fundamental dearth in explaining even this much, we would rather jump to conclusions about the earth's overall environmental destiny. The earth will change regardless of what we choose to do about it. We may be able to slightly slow down its pace, or slightly - very slightly - quicken its pace; but we are not - no matter how good our science - ever completely going to arrest the pace of a sequence of events that from time immemorial has marched in lockstep with a natural atmospheric authority much higher than the one human beings can ever hope to emulate. Dan JBAs a result, the claim that man-made global warming was causing an increase in hurricane activity was very controversial, and it led to a bitter divide amongst scientists studying cyclones. Two camps formed, with one arguing that the 1995-2005 period of high cyclone activity was just part of natural variability, and the other arguing that it was due to man-made global warming.
