Re: Global warming

Lord Lawson lies on global cooling

BBC defends Lord Lawson climate change interview - BBC News

Global temperatures
Lord Lawson also said that "official figures" showed that "during this past 10 years, if anything... average world temperature has slightly declined".
However, this is contradicted by all the major global temperature datasets. The leading agencies, such as the UK Met Office and Nasa, all recognise a clear warming trend over this period, with 2016, 2015 and 2014 being the hottest years ever measured.

Lord Lawson, who was energy secretary in Margaret Thatcher's government before becoming chancellor, is a critic of government policies on renewable energy.
He now chairs the Global Warming Policy Foundation, a think tank which describes itself as "open-minded on the contested science of global warming".



David Aaronovitch noted the GWPF's launch in The Times, writing "Lord Lawson’s acceptance of the science turns out, on close scrutiny, to be considerably less than half-hearted. Thus he speaks of 'the (present) majority scientific view', hinting rather slyly at the near possibility of a future, entirely different scientific view. (...) 'Sceptic' (...) is simply a misnomer. People such as Lord Lawson are not sceptical, for if one major peer-reviewed piece of scientific research were ever to be published casting doubt on climate change theory, you just know they’d have it up in neon at Piccadilly Circus. They are only sceptical about what they don’t want to be true."[38]

The Guardian quoted Bob Ward as saying "some of those names are straight from the Who's Who of current climate change sceptics ... It's just going to be a way of pumping material into the debate that hasn't been through scrutiny". The Guardian article cast doubt on the idea that an upsurge in scepticism was underway, noting that "in (the US) Congress, even the most determined opponents of climate change legislation now frame their arguments in economic terms rather than on the science".[39]

Fred Pearce wrote in The Guardian that the three inquiries GWPF looked into were all badly flawed, and that The Climategate Inquiries report ably dissects their failures. He writes that the report, "for all its sharp—and in many cases justified—rejoinders to the official inquiries ... is likely to be ignored in some quarters for its brazen hypocrisy." Pearce argues that one of the criticisms of the three inquiries was that no climate sceptics were on the inquiry teams, and now the critics themselves have produced a review of the reviews that included no one not already supportive of the sceptical position. But, Pearce wrote, Montford "has landed some good blows here." [40]

In 2014 The Independent described the foundation as "the UK's most prominent source of climate-change denial".[5]




Lawson is employed by the " charity " Because it is registered as a charity, the GWPF is not legally required to report its sources of funding,[15] and Peiser has declined to reveal its funding sources, citing privacy concerns.

Wonder where the money comes from to buy someone like Lawson , the architect of Britains disastrous exchange rate mechanism gamble that cost the UK Billions in a losing bet ?

If I were to produce incontrovertible evidence that conclusively shows that:

a) The theory that man-made CO2 is solely responsible for climate change and/or global warming cannot be correct, and;

b) Sea level rise cannot also be as a result of mankind...

...will you be willing to keep an open mind?

If you believe that the facts I will present are scientifically wrong, will you produce data in support of your position to counter mine?

Re: Global warming

Not many people subscribe to the belief that Global warming is soley due to man's carbon dioxide emissions. All living things respire CO2, all decaying things, including landfill sites emit CH4 which is much more dangerous as a greenhouse gas than CO2

Really?

Then why all the fuss (and billions upon billions being spent) to try and reduce (man-made) CO2?

Re: Global warming

man made CO2 emissions ARE A CONTRIBUTOR to global warming, one that we can cut down. It does not have to be all black or all white.

If true then those volcanos have been there for millions of years so why the acceleration in ice melt now?
