Wow. As if this is breaking news. Think a minute. The worlds population has tripled since WW2. People exhale carbon dioxide. Trees convert carbon dioxide in photosynthesis and releases Oxygen. Decrease the forest and vegetation and increase the carbon dioxide emission from people, and Global Warming becomes chicken little. Global Warming may be the result of major climatic changes or the result of the above. I disagree with the conclusions interated by Al Gore and the environmentalists that it is caused by industrial carbon dioxide emissions from industry. Along with the advances in the industrial age there has come about many lateral advances; among them medicine, thus increasing life span and increased population. A higher standard of living throughout the world has consumed more products and deforestation due wood related products. Should the US bring its economy down by enacting conservation measures in attempts to reduce carbon dioxide emissions to appease the rest of the world that refuses to act responsibly? Can mankind at this stage of so called Global warming even stop or delay the process, if the deforestation and population increase? Somehow, my logic tells me no to all the questions above. What is the answer? One thing is for sure; if the doom and gloomers are correct, the population and products consumed will be substantially reduced, thus reducing emissions into the atmosphere and eventual balance between O2 and CO2.

Claims that there is a consensus among scientists on man-made global warming have been denied by over 400 prominent members of the scientific community and published in a report issued by the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee under Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla.


This new “consensus busters” report, Inhofe’s office says, “ is poised to redefine the debate.”


Many of the scientists questioning the consensus are from the very U.N. panel making the claims.

Here is the latest regarding Global Warming. It seems that there are many more scientists skeptical of man made global warming, its effects, and effective solutions, if any. This report lists the names of the scientists in their own words the doubts about global warming. Very impressive list.

NY Times: Global Warming Claims Bogus
Tuesday, January 1, 2008 4:38 PM

Critics are calling it clear evidence that the climate of opinion on alleged global warming is shifting in favor of skeptics, especially since it comes from the New York Times, until now a fervent acolyte of climate change guru Al Gore and his doctrine of ongoing and disastrous climate change.

It now appears the world was taken in by Chicken Little. With so many meteorological skeptics now who refute the conclusions expounded by environmental doom and gloomers, how many currently honestly believe Global Warming is man made or if it truly exists at all?

I liked the response of one of the real climate scientists (as opposed to Gore's cosmetologist, landscape architects,
psychologists, lawyers, a philosopher, and a dermatologist) when asked if global warming is real. He said yes it has been warming up since the last ice age, but disagreed on the cause. In fact Dr. Schneider (one of only 5 of Gore's "scientist's" with training in climate, weather or other atmospheric sciences) in the 1970's was advocating global cooling and warning of a coming ice age.

The increases in green house gases in my life time is more due to the increase in people than industrial causes. When you consider each additional person generates as much CO2 as a hummer being driven 18,000 miles a year. However, more trees would help reduce the CO2 levels. The debate I have read though was if the old growth forests are doing as much good as a similar amount of new growth. IIRC there was some talk about the old growth being more static and not requiring as much CO2.

I do not know if new growth uses more CO2 than old growth, but if your statement is correct in that humans produce or exhale more CO2 than autos, I too agree. However, more and more scientists are skeptical of even CO2 levels influence climate as much as previously assumed based upon models. One thing is for sure is that the Amazon basin is becoming more depleted of forests and its beneficial potential in reductions of atmospheric CO2 levels. I'm hesitant to believe Global Warming is mostly caused by man and industrial by products consumption. I've been writing in this post to dispel the common outlook that Global warming even exists as caused by man.

Analysis Disputes U.N. Panel on Warming Culprit
Monday, October 6, 2008 4:12 PM

By: Phil Brennan


A new scientific analysis disputes a United Nations panel’s contention that rising atmospheric levels of carbon dioxide are the culprit for increasing global temperatures.


Researchers David Douglass and John Christy, writing in a paper recently accepted for publication in a scientific journal and already available on the Internet, have come to a different conclusion, as reported on the jennifermarohasy.com/blog.



The U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change attributed rising temperatures to increases in atmospheric levels of carbon dioxide.

But Douglass and Christy considered other observations, and at different latitude bands, than the computer models the U.N. panel used. They concluded that:



The consequences of El Ninos and La Ninas in the tropics have a more significant effect on global temperature anomalies than carbon dioxide does. In particular, an El Nino event drove the 1998 global temperature maximum.



Variations in global temperatures since 1978 have resulted mostly from climate effects in the northern hemisphere (northern extratropics) and these effects cannot be attributed to carbon dioxide.



Carbon dioxide has contributed a small amount to an increase in global temperatures but without what is commonly referred to as feedback.


Douglass is in the Physics and Astronomy Department at the University of Rochester, N.Y., while Christy is with the Department of Atmospheric Science and Earth System Science Center at the University of Alabama. Their paper, “Limits on CO2 Climate Forcing from Recent Temperature Data of Earth,” was accepted recently for publication in “Energy and Environment.”


Despite continuing increases in atmospheric levels of carbon dioxide since temperatures peaked in 1998, the global climate has entered a cooling trend many researchers insist will last for as long as another 30 years.


For example, Don J. Easterbrook, a geology professor at Western Washington University, says global cooling began in 2002, was interrupted by the El Nino of 2005 and will continue, until 2040.


For the whole time period from 2002-2040, Easterbrook expects a drop in temperature of about a half-degree Celsius (nine-tenths of a degree Fahrenheit). Recent studies and observations have shown a lack of (or at least not as many) sunspots, he said.

That might be part of a bigger trend of lower sunspot activity (possibly similar to what happened from 1600 to 1700, when there were almost no sunspots), he said. Lower sunspot activity signifies that the sun is putting out slightly less energy, so the Earth receives less.

It seems as if the UN politicians have bought into the global warming scare by liberals world wide. Yet again, we have evidence from eminent geophysicists that refute the conclusions just today. More real climate experts are denouncing the man made causes of global warming or climate change than previously reported.
