  • The Freedom Our Forefathers fought for must be protected.

    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." - Ronald Reagan

Global Cooling

Posted by rightwinger on July 29, 2008

WASHINGTON (Map, News) – It’s been unusually chilly in Anchorage this summer. In fact, temperatures in the Alaskan city have reached 70 degrees only twice this year, compared with 49 times in 2004. A National Weather Service meteorologist predicted that 2008 will likely go down “as the summer with the least number of 65-degree days” on record.

Last week, the scientist who wrote the computer model that monitors Australia’s compliance with the Kyoto Protocol cast serious doubts on whether the Earth is getting warmer at all. David Evans was a consultant to the Australian Greenhouse Office from 1999 to 2005, so he’s no ordinary global warming “denier.” But Evans now says the scientific evidence compiled since 1999 has convinced him that he — and what he calls other global warming “alarmists” — were wrong.

What evidence? The telltale greenhouse signature — a hot spot about 10 kilometers up that would confirm carbon emissions’ role in global warming — has simply not been found, even by hundreds of instruments (radiosondes) that have been monitoring atmospheric temperatures for decades. In fact, Evans says, satellites all say the warming trend ended in 2001, and that the Earth’s temperature actually dropped 0.6 degrees Celsius last year — to what it was back in 1980.

Furthermore, new ice cores dating back a half million years show that temperature rises an average 800 years before there is an accompanying rise in atmospheric carbon, which, Evans says, “says something important about which was cause and which was effect.”

Despite $50 billion spent worldwide since 1990 to avert a man-made climate catastrophe, Evans maintains there is still no scientific evidence that carbon emissions cause significant temperature changes.

    Oops. Check your facts. Please.

    David Evans is not a scientist.
    He’s just a Phd in Electrical Engineering who worked for a government department.
    Big deal.
    He doesn’t actually do any science on climate.
    Go ahead. Check him out.
    Have a good hard look at his peer-reviewed research record.
    You won’t find anything interesting.
