Top 10 climate myth-busters for 2007

Steven Milloy has published a list of the top 10 climate myth-busters...here are the top 3...

1. Cracked crystal balls. Observed temperature changes measured over the last 30 years don’t match well with temperatures predicted by the mathematical climate models relied on by the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), researchers reported.

The models predict significantly warmer atmospheric temperatures than actually occurred, despite the availability of more and better quality data and improved modeling efforts since the late-1970s.

“We suggest, therefore, that projections of future climate based on these models be viewed with much caution,” the researchers concluded.

2. The big yellow ball in the sky. The Sun may have contributed 50 percent or more of the global warming thought to have occurred since 1900, according to a new historical temperature reconstruction showing more variation in pre-industrial temperatures than previously thought.

The researchers found that “the climate is very sensitive to solar changes and a significant fraction of the global warming that occurred during the last century should be solar induced.”

3. Pre-SUV warming. Another new temperature reconstruction for the past 2,000 years indicates that globally averaged temperature 1,000 years ago was about 0.3 degrees Celsius warmer than the current temperature. Since that climatic "heat wave" obviously wasn’t caused by coal-fired power plants and SUVs, the current temperature is quite within natural variability, deflating alarmists’ rash conclusions about the warming of the past 50 years.

You need to read some literature by scientists. Steven Milloy politician.

He argued that second hand smoke is not dangerous (while being paid by tobacco companies - which he did not disclose). He let the worlds biggest tobacco company edit his "junk science" website".

He questions human evolution.

He receives money from Exxon.

He has argued against banning asbestos.

There are woman standing on street corners who have pimped themselves out less than this guy

First of all, I don't know how true all of your allegations are. However, I don't care if he takes money from Exxon. many scientists take money from the canadian government. many people argue about asbestos. And, the evidence on second-hand smoke was very inconclusive for quite some time.

While anon accuses Steven Milloy of not observing science, he gleans over Al Gore's own contributions to the science. Yet Al remains the poster child of global warming.

And what is Maurice Strong's role in all of this?

Anonymous needs to pay attention to facts, not simply regurgitate the tired line "he's funded by Exxon". So is my kids schools environmental sciences faculty. Does that make them Exxon drones? Hardly.
