Interview with Dr. S. Fred Singer

PBS

”...there’s no question in my mind that humanity is able to affect climate on a local scale. We all know that cities are warmer than the suburbs or surrounding countryside. So there’s clear indication that human beings, in producing energy, in just living, generate heat. We’re not going to go back to living without energy. Whether or not human beings can produce a global climate change is an important question. This question is not at all settled...”

Climate Science Must Reads - Two Op Eds, a Proposed Litmus Test and A Water Vapor Challenge

Roger Pielke Sr Climate Science Weblog

In Roger Pielke’s excellent Climate Science weblog, there were two guest op ed blogs worth a read. One by Hendrik Tennekes (actually third in a series) and another by Ben Herman.

Also Roger proposes a much needed Litmus Test to track model forecast global warming and Proposes Evaporation Is Equal To Precipitation On The Global Scale - Implications To the Conclusion On A Claimed Increase of Atmospheric Water Vapor

Just a sampling of great posts.

Controversy Down Under

The Global Warming Debate

David Legates, WGMD 92.7 News Radio--Delmarva

"There are two sides in the global warming debate—those who think the earth is doomed and those who do not believe anything is happening. There is also the question as to whether or not any global warming might be human-induced as opposed to a natural cycle. State Climatologist David Legates told WGMD’s Randy Nelson show that the arguments on both sides concerning global warming-- really don’t solve anything. Legates adds that rather than focusing on the climate issue, there are a lot of things than can be done on a prudent basis, such as conserving energy.”

Not that simple

Roy Spencer, New York Post

"Contrary to popular accounts, very few scientists in the world - possibly none - have a sufficiently thorough, “big picture” understanding of the climate system to be relied upon for a prediction of the magnitude of global warming. To the public, we all might seem like experts, but the vast majority of us work on only a small portion of the problem.”

No Consensus on Hurricanes and Global Warming

CO2 Science

As a result of data and reasoning described in their paper, Klotzbach and Gray say they “attribute the heightened Atlantic major hurricane activity of the 2004 season as well as the increased Atlantic major hurricane activity of the previous nine years to be a consequence of multidecadal fluctuations in the strength of the Atlantic multidecadal mode and strength of the Atlantic Ocean thermohaline circulation.”

Inconvenient Truths: Novel science fiction on global warming

Patrick J. Michaels, National Review Online

Mendacity on global warming is bipartisan. President Bush proposes that we replace 20 percent of our current gasoline consumption with ethanol over the next decade. But it’s well-known that even if we turned every kernel of American corn into ethanol, it would displace only 12 percent of our annual gasoline consumption. The effect on global warming, like Kyoto, would be too small to measure, though the U.S. would become the first nation in history to burn up its food supply to please a political mob.

Global-warming skeptics cite being ‘treated like a pariah’

Eric Pfeiffer, The Washington Times

Scientists skeptical of climate-change theories say they are increasingly coming under attack—treatment that may make other analysts less likely to present contrarian views about global warming.
