Three brief notes.
Lord Monckton was invited by Rep. Joe Barton, the senior Republican on the US Energy & Commerce Committee, to speak alongside Al Gore at a global warming policy meeting in Washington.
Democrat members decided this was not such a good idea, and Monckton’s invitation was rescinded. Cowards.
Also from Climate Depot:
Al Gore has claimed that climate sceptics are akin to people who believe the moon landings were faked.
Inconvenient truth alert: Moonwalker and Award-Winning NASA Astronaut/Geologist Jack Schmitt is a global warming skeptic.
“The ‘global warming scare’ is being used as a political tool to increase government control over American lives, incomes and decision making. It has no place in the (Geological) Society’s activities,” Schmitt, who flew on the Apollo 17 mission, said in 2008.
“As a geologist, I love Earth observations. But it is ridiculous to tie this objective to a “consensus” that humans are causing global warming when human experience, geologic data and history, and current cooling can argue otherwise. ‘Consensus,’ as many have said, merely represents the absence of definitive science,” Schmitt explained.
And finally: I think my ‘Profits of Doom’ is the best simple introduction to global warming science.
But Joanne Nova’s Skeptics’ Handbook is entertaining reading, and a very useful guide to debate with Chicken Littles.
The key question to keep asking is, ‘What is the evidence of any correlation between human activity and changes in global climate?’
There isn’t any. Computer games (sorry, climate models) do not count as evidence.
