Scientists proclaim climate change is natural

As the Rudd government geared up its push for a CO2 cap-and-trade emissions trading scheme (ETS), which would annihilate what’s left of Australia’s collapsing physical economy, a public symposium last Sunday heard evidence from several leading Australian scientists that climate change is a natural phenomenon.

The symposium, ignored by the lying mainstream media, was held at Monash University and convened by Emeritus Professor Lance Endersbee. Several scientists identified hard evidence that severe cooling is the biggest climate challenge that we face—and its cause is entirely natural.

  1. The most respected scientific bodies have stated unequivocally that global warming is occurring, and people are causing it by burning fossil fuels (like coal, oil and natural gas) and cutting down forests. The U.S. National Academy of Sciences, which in 2005 the White House called “the gold standard of objective scientific assessment,” issued a joint statement with 10 other National Academies of Science saying “the scientific understanding of climate change is now sufficiently clear to justify nations taking prompt action. It is vital that all nations identify cost-effective steps that they can take now, to contribute to substantial and long-term reduction in net global greenhouse gas emissions.”

    Average temperatures have climbed 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit (0.8 degree Celsius) around the world since 1880, much of this in recent decades, according to NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies.

    The United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports that 11 of the past 12 years are among the dozen warmest since 1850.

    A press release from the National Academy of Sciences (you’d expect them to know their stuff, right?):
    “We urge all nations, in the line with the UNFCCC principles, to take prompt action to reduce the causes of climate change, adapt to its impacts and ensure that the issue is included in all relevant national and international strategies.”
    This statement was signed by:
    National Academy of Sciences, United States of America
    Chinese Academy of Sciences, China
    Royal Society, United Kingdom
    Russian Academy of Sciences, Russia
    Academia Brasiliera de Ciências, Brazil
    Royal Society of Canada, Canada
    Academié des Sciences, France
    Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher, Germany
    Indian National Science Academy, India
    Accademia dei Lincei, Italy
    Science Council of Japan, Japan

    The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC):
    “Even the minimum predicted shifts in climate for the 21st century are likely to be significant and disruptive.”

    American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS):
    “The scientific evidence is clear: global climate change caused by human activities is occurring now, and it is a growing threat to society [snip]The conclusions in this statement reflect the scientific consensus”

    National Research Council:
    “Greenhouse gases are accumulating in Earth’s atmosphere as a result of human activities, causing surface air temperatures and subsurface ocean temperatures to rise. Temperatures are, in fact, rising. ”

    Canadian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society (CMOS):
    “CMOS endorses the process of periodic climate science assessment carried out by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and supports the conclusion, in its Third Assessment Report, which states that the balance of evidence suggests a discernible human influence on global climate.”

    Geological Society of America:
    “The Geological Society of America (GSA) supports the scientific conclusions that Earth’s climate is changing; the climate changes are due in part to human activities; and the probable consequences of the climate changes will be significant and blind to geopolitical boundaries.”

    I swear, short of New York turning into an icy Narnia, Conservatives are never going to listen to the facts, sticking instead to the very very few “experts” and Sean Hannity, and the rest of those who refute the evidence.
    On this basis, you’re entirely wrong.

    According to you, there are only a few “experts” refuting AGW. I think there are quite a bit more than a few experts that disagree with the man-made global warming hypothesis. I’m certainly no scientist but it is hard to understand how something that is about 0.038% of the Earth’s atmosphere can have such a strong impact on climate. And of that 0.038%, how much is contributed by man and how much impact are we going to have on lower global temps by reducing our Co2 output. Very very little, if at all. But we will all pay dearly for it in a wallets and other ways.
