Validity of global warming questioned
By James H. Shott
Proponents of man-made global warming say that burning fossil fuels to produce electricity, power manufacturing processes and fuel motor vehicles is seriously harming the environment. However recent evidence shows that to be a flawed theory.
Data shows that the earth cooled last year rather than warmed, following a trend that began in 2000, and in light of this evidence much of the doomsday talk has quieted down. However, while activists still cling to their flawed theory, they have replaced the term â€œglobal warmingâ€ with â€œclimate change,â€ using the same theory to now account for any change that occurs, warming or cooling.
Scientists do not speak with one voice on this issue. Ivar Giaever is a Nobel Laureate in physics, and is one of 650 dissenting scientists who argued against this theory at the United Nations global warming conference in Poland last December. â€œI am a skeptic,â€ he said. â€œGlobal warming has become a new religion.â€
Other opponents have made similar comments, like former NASA official, atmospheric scientist Dr. Joanne Simpson, who declared, â€œSince I am no longer affiliated with any organization nor receiving any funding, I can speak quite frankly … As a scientist I remain skeptical.â€
