Climate Change is natural: 100 reasons why

From article:

Here are the 100 reasons, released in a dossier issued by the European Foundation, why climate change is natural and not man-made:

1.) There is “no real scientific proof” that the current warming is caused by the rise of greenhouse gases from man’s activity.

2.) Man-made carbon dioxide emissions throughout human history constitute less than 0.00022 percent of the total naturally emitted from the mantle of the earth during geological history.

3.) Warmer periods of the Earth’s history came around 800 years before rises in CO2 levels.

4.) After World War II, there was a huge surge in recorded CO2 emissions but global temperatures fell for four decades after 1940.

5.) Throughout the Earth’s history, temperatures have often been warmer than now and CO2 levels have often been higher – more than ten times as high.

6.) Significant changes in climate have continually occurred throughout geologic time.

7.) The 0.7C increase in the average global temperature over the last hundred years is entirely consistent with well-established, long-term, natural climate trends.

8.) The IPCC theory is driven by just 60 scientists and favourable reviewers not the 4,000 usually cited.

9.) Leaked e-mails from British climate scientists – in a scandal known as “Climate-gate” – suggest that that has been manipulated to exaggerate global warming

10.) A large body of scientific research suggests that the sun is responsible for the greater share of climate change during the past hundred years.

11.) Politicians and activists claim rising sea levels are a direct cause of global warming but sea levels rates have been increasing steadily since the last ice age 10,000 ago

12.) Philip Stott, Emeritus Professor of Biogeography at the School of Oriental and African Studies in London says climate change is too complicated to be caused by just one factor, whether CO2 or clouds

13.) Peter Lilley MP said last month that “fewer people in Britain than in any other country believe in the importance of global warming. That is despite the fact that our Government and our political class—predominantly—are more committed to it than their counterparts in any other country in the world”.

14.) In pursuit of the global warming rhetoric, wind farms will do very little to nothing to reduce CO2 emissions

15.) Professor Plimer, Professor of Geology and Earth Sciences at the University of Adelaide, stated that the idea of taking a single trace gas in the atmosphere, accusing it and finding it guilty of total responsibility for climate change, is an “absurdity”

16.) A Harvard University astrophysicist and geophysicist, Willie Soon, said he is “embarrassed and puzzled” by the shallow science in papers that support the proposition that the earth faces a climate crisis caused by global warming.

17.) The science of what determines the earth’s temperature is in fact far from settled or understood.

18.) Despite activist concerns over CO2 levels, CO2 is a minor greenhouse gas, unlike water vapour which is tied to climate concerns, and which we can’t even pretend to control

19.) A petition by scientists trying to tell the world that the political and media portrayal of global warming is false was put forward in the Heidelberg Appeal in 1992. Today, more than 4,000 signatories, including 72 Nobel Prize winners, from 106 countries have signed it.

20.) It is claimed the average global temperature increased at a dangerously fast rate in the 20th century but the recent rate of average global temperature rise has been between 1 and 2 degrees C per century – within natural rates

21.) Professor Zbigniew Jaworowski, Chairman of the Scientific Council of the Central Laboratory for Radiological Protection in Warsaw, Poland says the earth’s temperature has more to do with cloud cover and water vapour than CO2 concentration in the atmosphere.

22.) There is strong evidence from solar studies which suggests that the Earth’s current temperature stasis will be followed by climatic cooling over the next few decades

23.) It is myth that receding glaciers are proof of global warming as glaciers have been receding and growing cyclically for many centuries

24.) It is a falsehood that the earth’s poles are warming because that is natural variation and while the western Arctic may be getting somewhat warmer we also see that the Eastern Arctic and Greenland are getting colder

25.) The IPCC claims climate driven “impacts on biodiversity are significant and of key relevance” but those claims are simply not supported by scientific research

This really shows that the Man-made Global Warming science is not settled.

And a little debunking of the so called settled science is always good. The list goes on at the original site link.
