I agree with this view outlined on COAST TO COAST AM last night (28 Oct 2014). What do you think?
Retired TV weatherman John Coleman, who studied and reported the weather for decades, and co-founded The Weather Channel, shared his assertion that man-made climate change is no longer scientifically credible. He recently presented this view at a UCLA forum on climate change, and in an open letter attacking the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which got picked up by international media (see related article). The issue became politicized after Al Gore helped promote the idea of scientist Dr. Roger Revelle that carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas causing climate change.
Climate change is natural and constantly occurring and is not affected by the actions of mankind, Coleman stated. We’ve had a half dozen dramatic climate shifts between ice ages and interglacial periods. Just 15,000 years ago there was a huge ice sheet covering parts of North America which was naturally caused, and then it was warmed up by natural causes and began melting, he noted, adding that the Earth is always varied in its climate. While carbon dioxide has increased in the atmosphere due to the burning of fossil fuels, it’s still less than ½ of 1% of the total atmospheric carbon dioxide, and this increase causes insignificant warming if any, he commented. The Earth is actually 20% greener than it was, and there’s been no scientific validation that the increase in CO2 is bringing about a climate crisis, he added.
