Ed Berry, Physicist and Patric Moore, Environmentalist: They both consider that CO2 from human emissions is not causing serious man-made global warming, serious other climate change effects, nor serious rise in ocean levels. In this discussion, they debate which view, logic, reasons are correct for the conclusion that they share about CO2 from human emissions.
Ed Berry, physicist: Here we are on January 26, 2016. Do you feel the heat? Do you see the clouds are gone and the sky is glowing red? Ten years ago, on January 25, 2006, Al Gore stood before his Sundance audience at the screening of his “An Inconvenient Truth.” Al Gore waved his quivering finger in the air and told his audience that unless the world takes drastic measures to reduce greenhouse gases within the next 10 years, we will reach a point of no return.
Thorpe Watson, Ph.D. in Physical Metallurgy & Science of Materials. Thirty five year career covering wide range of science disciplines plus 10 year investigation of the climate controversy: We have been told that the carbon dioxide (“CO2”) generated by the consumption of hydrocarbon fuels will cause runaway warming. Our only salvation is to embrace a carbon-free economy or pay indulgences (aka “carbon tax”). How a tax will ward off such a serious threat defies any rational explanation. It is absurd to believe that a carbon-free economy will stabilize the planet's ever-changing climate. However, a carbon-free economy will devastate modern lifestyles.
O.R. Adams, Jr., Jennifer Marohasy: O.R. Adams, a lawyer and serious student of science, presents his case about carbon dioxide from fossil fuels not being an important factor in claims of man global warming. His key scientist witness is Dr. Jennifer Marohasy in Australia. The main data are CO2 and temperature records of the Mauna Loa, Hawaii Observatory, both measured night and day. The temperature data is not well known and is key to this article. What do you students, teachers, scientists, the public and political leaders around the world think?
Michael Hart book author, Michael Kelly book reviewer: Let us be clear at the outset: the global climate is changing, and has always been changing. The earth has warmed by 1C over the last 150 years. That is not the issue. The issue is whether the human emissions of carbon dioxide since 1850 are heralding an imminent and certain global climate catastrophe that could be averted by engineering projects.
O.R. Adams Jr. is a retired lawyer. He prepared this paper about carbon dioxide cooling the Earth thoroughly as when he presented cases before the Supreme Court. This is a combination of having the facts, references and presenting it well.
O.R. Adams Jr. is a retired lawyer. He prepared this paper in 2011 about CO2 from fossil fuels and man-made global warming. He did it as thoroughly as a lawyer would to present a case before the U.S. Supreme Court. It is a combination of knowing the facts, having references and presenting it well. See comments dated December, 2016 by geologist, Robert (Robin) Richards, in South Africa on page 29.
“I would rather have questions that can't be answered than answers that can't be questioned.” - Richard Feynman, Physicist, Nobel laureate
Ed Berry, Atmospheric Physicist presents arguments why CO2 from fossil fuels is not causing serious global warming.
Uli Weber: Kohlendioxid (CO2) hat also eine Klimasensitivität von deutlich weniger als 1,0 [°C/2xCO2] und kann damit weder aktuell noch für die geologische Vergangenheit der bestimmende Klimaantrieb für die Temperaturschwankungen auf unserer Erde sein.
Bill Mundhausen: The controversy among scientists doesn't stop at mere observation, but extends to recommendations about what actions we humans might take. Unfortunately, as long as money and power are in the equation, we may not get to good science for a time. We must therefore remain reasonably skeptical of climate-change claims. As both scientists and consumers of scientific reporting, we must recognize that the overall picture is unsettled and that we must not allow political advocacy to censor any views or steer our judgment.
