Climatologist Dr. Judith Curry: 'On balance, I don’t see any particular dangers from greenhouse warming. [Humans do] influence climate to some extent, what we do with land-use changes and what we put into the atmosphere. But I don’t think it’s a large enough impact to dominate over natural climate variability.'
Kids in video exposed to dire climate claims to promote Gore's sequel and then "inspired" to fix problem. Climate activist Prince EA goes tells kids: "Storms are stronger than ever before...or more drought, wildfires, hurricanes than ever before."
“This is like, making me feel sad,” one kids says.
Alex Epstein on Fox News July 9, 2017: 'Sometimes in the world there are very destructive fads that many world leaders accept. In the 20th century we had socialism. Today we have climate catastrophism which sacrifices billions of peoples' access to affordable energy to this ideal of some perfect mythical unchanged climate.'
'I think Trump had an obligation to stand up both for Americans, but also for 3 billion energy poor people throughout the world...I think it should be called the Paris Poverty Plan, because all it really does is it makes energy more expensive.'
'If you look throughout history, a lot of movements like control over the individual. In the 20th Century it was collectivism, particularly socialism, and today there is this idea that human beings left free are going to ruin the planet. So a lot of people like the idea that their power is somehow necessary for the planet and for humanity'
'In general you have this tendency to only look at the negatives of things that people don't like, like fossil fuels. And then to only look at the positives that they do like solar and wind which are called renewables but should be called unreliables.'
A study published June 27 by two scientists and a veteran statistician. The peer-reviewed study tried to validate current surface temperature datasets managed by NASA, NOAA and the UK’s Met Office, all of which make adjustments to raw thermometer readings. Skeptics of man-made global warming have criticized the adjustments. Climate scientists often apply adjustments to surface temperature thermometers to account for “biases” in the data. The new study doesn’t question the adjustments themselves but notes nearly all of them increase the warming trend. Basically, “cyclical pattern in the earlier reported data has very nearly been ‘adjusted’ out” of temperature readings taken from weather stations, buoys, ships and other sources. In fact, almost all the surface temperature warming adjustments cool past temperatures and warm more current records, increasing the warming trend, according to the study’s authors.
