Global Warming - Experts View


Here is the experts view... some 150 climate experts from around 16 or 17 countries have discredited efforts by the Copenhagen climate change summit to put various curbs on human beings on the 'misconception' that human beings were responsible for climate change and global warming and other changes that are being experienced.
The experts asked them to produce convincing evidence to show that human being are the cause of global warming.
These experts have in a joint statement released by the International Climate Science Coalition, an association of scientists, economists and energy and policy experts working to promote better public understanding of climate change debunked the claim.




The experts challenged and demanded on the Internet that the United Nations should make public and substantiate each of ten fundamental assertions with regard to the current climate concerns to be debated at the Copenhagen meet.
"With revelations that critical temperature data used by the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change appear to have been intentionally distorted to increase warming trends, national representatives to the Copenhagen Climate Change Conference must demand a thorough re-examination of the scientific evidence supporting proposed mitigation actions," said Tim Patterson, ICSC chair and professor of earth sciences at Carleton University in Ottawa, Canada.
"This should not be limited to simple temperature data auditing but must also include a re-evaluation of many of the climate-related assertions accepted by politicians and media worldwide," he affirmed.
The most significant among the scientists' challenges is to comprehensively substantiate claims that:
  • The recent climate change phenomenon is unusual in comparison with historical records.
  • Human emissions of carbon dioxide and other 'greenhouse gases' (GHG) are dangerously affecting global climate.
  • Computer-based models are reliable indicators of future climatic conditions.




"While policies designed to conserve energy, reduce pollution and help vulnerable peoples adapt to climate changes are important to pursue, proposals to severely curtail GHG emissions in an effort to control climate make no sense, given the current state of scientific knowledge," said Wibjorn Karlen, Professor Emeritus, physical geography, Stockholm University, Sweden.
"Instead, we need to focus on environmental issues we know we can positively impact -- air, land and water pollution being primary examples," Karlen added.
"The science of climate change is not settled; it is evolving rapidly with critically important discoveries, many of which contradict IPCC findings that come out every month," asserted ICSC science advisor Robert M Carter and professor marine geophysical laboratory, James Cook University, Australia.
"The already weak case for dangerous man-made global warming is getting weaker still as our understandings advance. So governments need a several-decade-long time out while the science matures before even considering the possibility of GHG emission restrictions," they said.
Thus, we see the experts have virtually attacked the politicians and the government to take some positive steps in bringing out clean air, avoid land and water pollution etc. that are the primary cause of Global warming.
It is something difficult to understand how the experts feel that human beings are not responsible for Global Warming. A man takes a car instead of taking a bicycle or a bus. We see in Bangalore, India, how day in and day out traffic jams are taking the toll. Cars on road are on the rise. And by traffic jams, more Co2 is emitted by the static car. A recent survey has said that a person travelling in bicycle reaches some 10 minutes earlier to a car for a 15 km distance.
We are thus are also responsible for the climate change and Global warming. It may be argued that it is necessity to travel in a car etc. If that is so it is better that, they buy Carbon Credits to offset their Co2 footprints. I have found a website, which is offering these services.
Hope the Copenhagen summit comes out with some good solutions in order to bring about a sweet world for the people to live in.
