27% does not make a concensus
Contributing? No doubt. But an insignificant contribution..John Coleman wants to sue Al Gore for fraud. Coleman, who founded the Weather Channel in 1982, thinks taking legal action against Al Gore would be a great "vehicle to finally put some light on the fraud of global warming." Coleman rejects the notion that people must take drastic actions to reduce their energy use.
Speaking at the 2008 International Conference on Climate Change on Monday, Coleman sharply chastised those who further global warming alarmism. Coleman believes that the station he founded has been captured by alarmists, such as the Weather Channel?s Heidi Cullen, who has advocated revoking the license of meteorologists that believe global warming can be explained by cyclical weather patterns and not human activity.
The majority of the scientific community seems to agree that humans are contributing to climate change.
27% does not make a concensus
And lastly, regarding this fringe group of denier scientists..A 2003 survey of 530 climate scientists in 27 countries, conducted by Dennis Bray and Hans von Storch at the GKSS Institute of Coastal Research in Germany, found
82 percent said global warming is happening, but only
56 percent said it?s mostly the result of human causes, and only
35 percent said models can accurately predict future climate conditions.
Only 27 percent believed ?the current state of scientific knowledge is able to provide reasonable predictions of climate variability on time scales of 100 years.?
:thumbsup: to this fringe group of climate scientists who stand up against political correctness, ask the hard questions the IPCC won't ask, and deliver unbiased scientific data.Former Vice President Al Gore has said repeatedly that there is a ?consensus? in favor of his alarmist views on global warming. And of course, he?s not alone.
Two weeks ago, Jim Martin, executive director of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, when told of our conference, said, ?You could have a convention of all the scientists who dispute climate change in a relatively small phone booth.? (Denver Post, February 12, 2008).
RealClimate.org predicted that no real scientists would show up at this conference.
We have with us, tonight and tomorrow, more than 200 scientists and other experts on climate change, from Australia, Canada, England, France, Hungary, New Zealand, Poland, Russia, Sweden, and of course the United States.
They come from the University of Alabama, Arizona State, Carleton, Central Queensland, Delaware, Durham, and Florida State University.
From George Mason, Harvard, The Institute Pasteur in Paris, James Cook, John Moores, Johns Hopkins, and the London School of Economics.
From The University of Mississippi, Monash, Nottingham, Ohio State, Oregon State, Oslo, Ottawa, Rochester, Rockefeller, and the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm.
And from the Russian Academy of Sciences, Suffolk University, the University of Virginia, Westminster School of Business (in London), and the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.
