I often post about global warming here and it is fair to say that I am a fully paid up member of the climate sceptics.
Part of the reason I feel passionately about this is that I feel that I was conned as a student, both secondary school and University, into believing all this stuff.
I trusted the teachers and lecturers that they knew what they were talking about. As scientists and engineers, I assumed that they had picked up the theory from known and reputable sources and, if necessary, performed their own literature search to verify the claims that were made.
Now, more and more, it seems that they were wrong in what they taught me.
This recent outburst from a top meteorologist and founder of the weather channel is pretty damning;
“The ocean is not rising significantly. The polar ice is increasing, not melting away. Polar Bears are increasing in number. Heat waves have actually diminished, not increased. There is not an uptick in the number or strength of storms (in fact storms are diminishing).”
The article points out too that;
The United State’s energy-related carbon pollution rose 2.5 per cent despite the President’s pledges to decrease it.
Even if you are still of a Warmist frame of mind, you have to admit that the EU’s continuing rush to commit to more, massive reductions in CO2 at a time with the main contributors – USA, Russia, China, India – are increasing is suicidal for business and crippling to ordinary people.
