Scientists Publish Letter Blasting Global Warming 'Alarmists'

Wednesday, 09 Feb 2011 02:10 PM

Taking a group of fellow scientists to task for alarmism and flawed analysis, a leading group of scientists published an open letter to Congress this week refuting much of the data indicating that the earth is warming. The latest back and forth between scientists comes as Democrats and the Obama administration continue to push for cap-and-trade taxes and environmental regulations on the amount of carbon emissions being created by business.

Gray, who teaches at Colorado State University, creates a predication of hurricanes every year that generally has tremendous accuracy.

Specifically, the group was responding a letter written Jan. 28 by 18 scientists to members of the U.S. House stating that global warming is a fact, and that the earth is heading toward calamity if carbon emissions are not curbed. But Gray and the others warned that there is ample evidence on the record refuting these alarmist conjectures.

“A lengthy review of their claims and others that climate alarmists frequently make can be found on the Web site of the Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide and Global Change (see Carbon Dioxide and Earth's Future: Pursuing the Prudent Path),” the new letter states. “That report offers a point-by-point rebuttal of all of the claims of the "group of eighteen," citing in every case peer-reviewed scientific research on the actual effects of climate change during the past several decades.”

The letter asks if recent reports “provide any real-world evidence of Earth's seas inundating coastal lowlands around the globe? No. Increased human mortality? No. Plant and animal extinctions? No. Declining vegetative productivity? No. More frequent and deadly coral bleaching? No. Marine life dissolving away in acidified oceans? No.

“Quite to the contrary, in fact, these reports provide extensive empirical evidence that these things are not happening. And in many of these areas, the referenced papers report finding just the opposite response to global warming, i.e., biosphere-friendly effects of rising temperatures and rising CO2 levels.”
