Dr. Glenn A. Marsch is a professor of physics at Grove City College where he teaches physics: 'What if they’re wrong and we’re actually about to embark on a period of global cooling? What if, in fact, the carbon dioxide we’re emitting is truly as potent a greenhouse gas as people say it is; and what if it’s keeping our temperatures relatively safer now and preventing them from plummeting? In that case, trying to eviscerate our economy so that we can’t combat the much greater threat of cooling is one of the worst things we can do. The problem with the precautionary principle is that on the basis of ignorance, it says that we must do something that could be deleterious. Rather than helping, we could be hurting when we can least afford it.'
Curry, the climate 'heretic' who converted from warmist to challenging the 'consensus' speaks at National Press Club in DC: 'The main problem is we are putting the policy cart before the scientific horse'
Curry on Eve of NYC UN Summit: 'Relying on global international treaty to solve the problem -- which I do not think would really solve the problem even if it was implemented -- is politically unviable and economically unviable.'
Curry on CO2 control knob: 'Even on the timescale of decade or two, we could end up be very surprised on how the climate plays out and it might not be getting warmer like the UN IPCC says. We don’t know what's going to happen. All other things being equal – yes -- more carbon dioxide means warmer, but all other things are never equal. We just don’t know. I think we are fooling ourselves to think that CO2 control knob really influences climate on these decadal or even century time scales.'
Curry on intimidation: 'If I were nontenured scientist, I would fear for my job! But I am a senior scientist with retirement in my sight, so I can afford to do what I want, say what I think.'
DiCaprio: 'It’s an honor to accept the role of UN Messenger of Peace on Climate Change and to support the Secretary General in his efforts to address one of the most important issues we face as a global community,” said DiCaprio in a statement. 'I feel a moral obligation to speak out at this key moment in human history - it is a moment for action. How we respond to the climate crisis in the coming years will likely determine the fate of humanity and our planet.'
Carter & Tom Harris: 'Al Gore was right in one respect: Climate change is a moral issue — but that’s because there is nothing quite so immoral as well-fed, well-housed Westerners assuaging their consciences by wasting huge amounts of money on futile anti-global-warming policies'
'CO2 is said to be responsible for global warming that is not occurring, for accelerated sea-level rise that is not occurring, for net glacial and sea ice melt that is not occurring . . . and for increasing extreme weather that is not occurring.'
Producer 'Robert Kenner’s polished and deftly argued film finds compelling subjects on both sides of the fence, from the proudly sleazy Marc Morano, who boasts of his underhanded tactics to discredit the science.'
Two Democratic lawmakers held a briefing Thursday to argue that climate change skeptics use similar arguments and tactics to those who believed that tobacco and lead are not harmful. Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) and Rep. Henry Waxman (R-Calif.) said similar conservative interests have been behind many of movements that have been discredited,
'Klein argued that North America and Europe need to pay reparations to poorer nations for causing climate change. Her new book, “This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. The Climate,” used flawed facts, exaggerations and misrepresentations to promote her brand of climate-change alarmism.'
