Large numbers of scientists have unabashedly provided panicked, urgent statements in their quest to define global warming. But not all academics within the profession are on board with the theory such scenarios as greenhouse gas emissions are directly contributing to a consistent rise in the Earth’s temperature.

Judith Curry, an American climatologist and former chair of Georgia Institute of Technology’s School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, is among the scientists who have expressed skepticism in the assorted theories associated with global warming.

Curry and fellow climatologist academic Nicholas Lewis published a study of climate change and global warming. In her research alongside Lewis, Curry has asserted the findings she and Lewis derived at differ greatly from the information gleaned by members of the International Panel on Climate Change.

“Our estimates of sensitivity, both over a 70-year timeframe and long term, are far lower than the average values of sensitivity determined from global models that are used for warming projections,” Curry wrote in a Wall Street Journal op-ed.

In stark contrast to the large-scale temperature increases projected by members of the IPCC, Curry wrote, “Our ranges are narrower, with far lower upper limits than reported by the IPCC’s latest report. Even our upper limits lie below the average values of climate models.”

Curry initially spoke in favor of the popular scientific beliefs surrounding global warming and climate change. As recently as 2005, she asserted hurricanes could become more commonplace because of climate change. But in a 2013 interview with NPR, she changed her tune and plainly said, “We just don’t know.”

As more information has surfaced in her own independent research, Curry said she believes there is great uncertainty about variations in climate change and global warming. While Curry has not ruled out the possibility of greenhouse gas emissions and other such circumstances causing for the earth’s temperature to rise, she has asserted many of her peers’ conclusions are premature.

“I’ve been trying to understand how there can be such a strong consensus, given these uncertainties,” Curry said in 2013 as she came before a House of Representatives subcommittee.
