Dennis Hedke, geophysicist: Are the world's coastal cities destined to be inundated as ice melts at the top and bottom of the planet, causing the oceans to rise? Climate alarmists argue this will be the case if policymakers do not adopt draconian measures to eliminate fossil fuels, especially coal, which produce carbon dioxide emissions that, they allege, cause harmful global warming.
Calvin Beisner, Cornwall Alliance: From all appearances, the data-adjusters at PSMSL are attempting to “correct” the sea level rise data that do not support the conceptualization of a rapidly-rising sea level trend in response to rising human CO2 emissions. “It is always highly questionable to shift data collected in the far past without any proven new supporting material.” Apparently not even tide gauge measurements can be spared from those who tendentiously fiddle with raw data to satisfy an agenda. Alas, “A lie can travel halfway around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes,” as Mark Twain is (almost surely mistakenly) alleged to have said. Give this truth a little shove, and maybe it’ll catch and slay the lie.
Howard Cork Hayden, Emeritus Physics Professor, University of Connecticut: Part 1: Some Climate History, Part 2: IPCC et al, Part 3: Adding Heat to the Atmosphere. There is no evidence from a half-billion years that CO2 has ever controlled the climate. 40% of the world's 7 billion people have no access to clean drinking water. Three billion people cook over open fires - with deadly consequences. This was presented in a debate about man-made global warming at Colorado State University - Pueblo on December 2, 2017. The other person in the debate was Professor Scott Denning of CSU - Fort Collins. Use search box with Denning to find his presentation.
Bryan Leyland, power systems design, mechanical engineer: What is remarkable is that a retired engineer with access to the Internet has been able to make reasonably accurate predictions of future climate. Yet, to my knowledge, no computer-based climate model nor any mainstream “climate scientist” predicted the 2011 cooling or the timing and magnitude of the 2015/2016 El Niño/La Nina. To me, this is truly remarkable We could be returning to the conditions in the little ice age. This is confirmed by the very weak solar cycle with no sunspots for significant periods. History tells us that cooling causes crop failures, famine, disease and, often, war. We must not forget that the climate changes naturally and we need to be prepared for climate change–be it cooling or warming.
Harold Doiron, Ph.D. Chairman, The Right Climate Stuff Research Team (Retired NASA scientists and engineers): Since America’s national security depends in part on energy security, unsubstantiated claims about global warming that prevent policymakers from making “rational decisions” with regard to the development of U.S. energy resources have become a national security threat. “At NASA, we have a policy: You can’t make a design decision on a spacecraft or rocket that is not validated,” he said. “You don’t make critical decisions based on ‘garbage in, garbage out.’ Yet our government has been doing that with respect to climate alarm.”
John Robson: For the past 2.5 million years the Earth has been unusually cold, with repeated glaciations whose periodic advances and retreats science cannot model or predict. In fact we are still in an “ice age” today, with significant polar ice, though in a relatively warmer “interglacial”. Fortunately. Civilization would be impossible without the warming that started suddenly 12,000 years ago, and would become very difficult if the glaciers began another sudden advance. If the Earth actually is now warming, relative to 15,000 years ago or indeed the “Little Ice Age” from the end of the Middle Ages into the mid-19th century, it would be neither surprising nor man-made.
Vijay Jayaraj, M.Sc. Environmental Science. Research Associate for Developing Countries for the Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation: In the Middle Ages, many people created and handed down fairy tales. Today, fairy tales of catastrophic man-made doom are created by a cabal of people with scientific degrees and political and religious leaders. Modern fairy tales won't endure as long as the ones from the Middle Ages. Today's fairy tales about the catastrophes man is causing to the environment, especially with carbon dioxide from fossil fuels will be put in proper light by Mother Nature in due time.
Rick McKee, John Shanahan: This article presents ten catastrophic man-made global warming, man-made global cooling, man-made climate change, man-made climate disruptions, man-made sea level rise predictions, gives research and references to their origin. Lots of photos are presented of beautiful parts of the natural world in response to these catastrophic predictions about our planet. We encourage people to come together to work on realistic solutions of genuine problems affecting humanity and nature.
Chris Bischof, Bakken Oil Business Journal: At the beginning of December 2015, leaders from almost every nation in the world met in Paris to discuss Climate Change and to create plans aimed at reducing the amount of carbon released into the atmosphere. They believe the failure to cut back on carbon emissions – greenhouse gases – will lead to a global temperature increase that would unleash an existential crisis upon humanity. The total for all NASA piloted programs from 1959 to 2015 adds up to $275 billion, or about $500 billion in today’s dollars. The $44 Trillion estimate (and it is open ended, not a cap or maximum) for putting the brakes on climate change is almost 100 times the cost of our expeditions into space. Do we have any way of knowing if this huge outlay would save the world, as the representative from Tuvalu has declared it would? We do not.
James Lovelock, PhD in Medicine, Chemist, Independent Scientist, Environmentalist. Bruno Comby, President of Environmentalists for Nuclear - International in France describes the discovery of very tiny amounts of neonicotinoids in honey. This was made possible by the 1958 invention of the electron capture detector by Professor James Lovelock in the UK. Dr. Lovelock has been a leading figure in the environmental movement along with Stewart Brand and many others. Tiny amounts of all elements may be found throughout the universe. Tiny amounts of man-made chemicals may be found in most places on Earth. At what point does a tiny amount of something become pollution or toxic? Paracelsus, the Father of Toxicology answered that question in the 1500s, "All things are poison and nothing is without poison; only the dose makes a thing not a poison."
