Scientific Opinion on Climate Change

The Climate Conspiracy

If you do not believe that man is contributing to climate change below is a partial list of people who think you are an idiot. 97.4% (and rising) of the scientific community agree that global warming is taking place and over 90% (conservatively) are by way of research, evidence,  microscopes, historical data, and core samples taken from places like Antarctica certain that humans are causing it.

While skepticism is always healthy, public opinion on MMGW in the United States has actually in recent years moved to the contrary of scientific opinion … something that can only be attributed to false influence of corporate interests, the ignorance of the religious who believe a gods divine plan supersedes consequence and those who simply choose their beliefs based on personal convenience. What is most alarming about the later is the lack of concession and unwillingness to at least error on the side of caution when considering what is at stake.

Counter arguments:

“While 97.4% agree in global warming only 52% attribute it to man” … this is not correct. As of 2007 there are no accredited scientific organizations on the planet who reject the likelihood of human influence on climate. This lie is perpetuated on the lack of understanding of the scientific method … whereas skeptics expose peer review as a means of disproving the entire premise.

“Volcanoes contribute more to greenhouse gasses than humans” … Per reviewed and published scientific opinions, Volcanic eruptions yield only 65-319 million metric tons of CO2 per year. Human contribution including the burning of fossil fuels and changes to land yield 30 billion tons of CO2 per year. Furthermore, Volcanic eruptions only inject gas, ash and aerosols as high as the stratosphere, which typically falls and is washed out by rain before creating any adverse effects in the atmosphere. It is also argued that because volcanic ash clouds block sunlight and reduce surface temperatures, that the cooling effect or eruptions neutralize any contribution they have to global warming.

“Climate on Mars is also rising which confirms warming is not a man-made phenomenon” … There is not enough evidence and measurement of Mars climate to model any long term patterns. Climate on mars is also controlled by dust and albedo, not solar activity.

 

 

“Al Gore just did it for money” … as if Al Gore, the already wealthy and socially connected white man couldn’t think of a better way to make a few extra $$$ than by perpetuating a hoax (which he donated all proceeds of to climate research). While many aspects of evidence presented in Al Gore documentary An Inconvenient Truth have been subjected to further scrutiny (again how science works), none have discredited the premise of the video which is that man is in fact contributing to climate change by way of CO2 production and that measures need to be taken before irreversible effects on our environment occur.
