Happer on NYT: The article ends with the silly claim that the “six warmest years on record occurred after 2010.” The alleged record warmings are tenths of a degree or less, comparable to the statistical error. Thermometers have only existed for a few centuries and there are still no reliable networks of thermometers to measure global surface temperatures, although satellite measurements do provide a pretty good global average for the lower atmosphere since the year 1979. There is excellent proxy evidence that Earth’s temperature was warmer than today on several occasions since the end of the last ice age, about 12,000 years ago.
Moore: 'CO2 is lower in the atmosphere today than it has been through nearly all the history of life and that global temperature during the ongoing 2.5 million-year-long Pleistocene Ice Age is colder than it has been for the past 250 million years'
'During the past 150 million years CO2 had steadily declined to such a low level that plants were seriously threatened with starvation during the peak of the last few glacial cycles. Thankfully, our CO2 emissions have inadvertently reversed that trend, bringing some balance back to the global carbon cycle. All of this can be verified yet the narrative of “climate catastrophe”, which has no basis in science, is hollered from rooftops around the world.'
'Morano documents the false use of statistics behind the fraudulent claim 97 percent of scientists agree humans are causing catastrophic climate change'
Richard Lindzen of MIT concurs, saying in Senate testimony in 2007 “controlling carbon is a bureaucrat’s dream. If you control carbon, you control life.”
'Funding from governments and billionaire donors dwarfs the financial support for real science in the climate change debate.'
“It’s just the most recent in a long chain of eco-scares—overpopulation, deforestation, the ozone hole, resource scarcity, and so forth—for which the solution is always the same: global regulation by central planners,” Morano writes.
Morano also uses the centuries of existing data to expose pseudo-scientists’ attempts to scare the public about rising seas.
