Al Gore - eat your heart out.
Professor Jones also conceded the possibility that the world was warmer in medieval times than now - suggesting global warming may not be a man-made phenomenon.So let's see just how dishonest the anthropogenic global warming "science" has been. Two graphs, via SonicFrog:
And he said that for the past 15 years there has been no 'statistically significant' warming.
Q: Is the earth warming?
Q: Is it man's fault?
A: Probably not.
Q: Does anyone know enough about this now to be able to predict what's going to happen?
A: Absolutely not.
Q: And if they can't predict with any reliability, should we trust politicians to arrive at a solution?
A: Only fools go there...
ETC: More - from the London Times:
"The temperature records cannot be relied on as indicators of global change," said John Christy, professor of atmospheric science at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, a former lead author on the IPCC.Local factors? The article cites another researcher who published "photographs of weather stations in locations where their readings are distorted by heat-generating equipment. Some are next to air-conditioning units or are on waste treatment plants. One of the most infamous shows a weather station next to a waste incinerator."
These stations, they believe, have been seriously compromised by factors such as urbanisation, changes in land use and, in many cases, being moved from site to site.
Christy has published research papers looking at these effects in three different regions: east Africa, and the American states of California and Alabama.
"The story is the same for each one," he said. "The popular data sets show a lot of warming but the apparent temperature rise was actually caused by local factors affecting the weather stations, such as land development."
Moving the data collection equipment next to a waste incinerator - wow, I guess anthropogenic warming does exist.
