You are calling something a pollutant that we all produce. And it’s a good thing since it is at very low levels in the atmosphere. Happer then showed a picture of polluted air in China with the caption: “Real pollution in Shanghai.” “If you can see it, it’s not CO2,” Happer said. “We know for absolute certain that carbon dioxide is the stuff of life, the foundation for life on earth,” Moore said.
“If plants could vote, they would vote for coal,” Happer declared. “97% of scientists have often been wrong on many things,” he said. Patrick Moore discussed the benefits of rising carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. “We are dealing with pure political propaganda that has nothing to do with science,” he continued.
It was described by British scientist Nick Butterfield in 1990.
Lindzen cautioned: “The most important thing to keep in mind is – when you ask ‘is it warming, is it cooling’, etc. “I urge you when looking at a graph, check the scales! And they are arguing over hundredths of a degree when it is uncertain in tenths of a degree,” Lindzen said.
— is that we are talking about something tiny (temperature changes) and that is the crucial point.” Lindzen also challenged the oft-repeated UN IPCC claim that most of warming over past 50 years was due to mankind. The uncertainty here is tenths of a degree,” he noted. “And the proof that the uncertainty is tenths of a degree are the adjustments that are being made.
The fossil organism identified as a red algae called , found in rocks on Somerset Island and Baffin Island in Nunavut, was discovered more than two decades ago and estimated to be between 720 million and 1.2 billion years old.
But the fact that its age could have been anywhere in a 500-million year span led to some controversy.
To state that climate change will be ‘catastrophic’ hides a cascade of value-laden assumptions which do not emerge from empirical or theoretical science,” Hulme wrote.
Lindzen singled out Secretary of State John Kerry for his ‘ignorance’ on science. “Kerry expresses his ignorance of what science is,” he added.
“The deserts are greening from rising CO2,” he added.
“Co2 has provided the basis of life for at least 3.5 billion years,” Moore said.
Ralph Cicerone has even admitted that there is no evidence for catastrophic claims of man-made global warming. Miike Hulme, Professor of Environmental Sciences at the University of East Anglia, and Director of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, admitting that claims of a climate catastrophe were not the “language of science.” “The discourse of catastrophe is a campaigning device,” Hulme wrote to the BBC in 2006.
“The language of catastrophe is not the language of science.
Some scientists' calculations based on DNA evidence suggested red algae couldn't have existed 1.2 billion years ago.
