Global Warming: The Fallacy of predictions

There have been a lot of predictions and numbers about the future activity and consequences of global warming. — Joe Bastardi, of AccuWeather.com is an expert on a growing lists of skeptical scientists that do not buy into the “doomsday” global warming hypothesis. In the interview he speaks about the fallacy of predictions of the weather.

Part 1

Part 2

Joe Bastardi, in an online article entitled “Putting Global Warming in Context” says,

Nothing that is happening today is new or different. I have yet to have a global warming “true believer” tell me why over the past hundreds and thousands of years, before any significant or even detectable human influence, there were periods where carbon dioxide and temperature levels were well above those of recent experience. There are also places in our northern plains that have been covered with glaciers at one time and tropical rain forest at others, all without man’s influence. There is no reason to think that this can’t happen again no matter what we do. Anyone with a true understanding of climate history knows that the relatively small changes experienced over the last 100 years could easily be “natural.”


Also, when Al Gore in a 60 minutes interview said that there are only a very few scientific skeptics of global warming and that they were like people who thought the moon landing was staged, Joe Bastardi responded saying,

I am absolutely astounded that someone who refuses to publicly debate anyone on this matter and has no training in the field narrated a movie where frames of nuclear explosions were interspersed in a subliminal way in scenes of droughts and flood, among other major gaffes, can say these things and then have them accepted… by anyone.

The list of degreed meteorologists, climatologists, scientists, that signed the Manhatten declaration stating their disagreement with Mssr. Gore’s premises grows by the day.

What gets me most is he goes on unchallenged one-on-one on this. Never in all my years of competition have I seen someone elevated to a level that he is, in any thing, without any face-to-face competition to establish credibility.

Also, I’ve already shown in another post called “Global Warming Consensus? I see none” which shows that the number of skeptical scientists is much longer than Gore thinks. And it seems it’s still growing.
