Ladies and Gentleman scientists claim yet again global warming is not a product of man. It’s all part of the plan — the planet is really following it’s own gig of hot and cold. Are our worm bins, hybrids and recycling all for not? Should we continue to burn, waste and pillage? If global warming isn’t our fault, should we change our ways? The bigger question may be: should it matter if it exists or not…
Climate change is much more likely to be part of a cycle of warming and cooling that has happened regularly every 1,500 years for the last million years, they say.
And the doom and gloom merchants, who point to the threat to the polar bear from the melting North Pole, are wrong, the authors say.
Mr Singer said: “We have a greenhouse theory with no evidence to support it, except a moderate warming turned into a scare by computer models whose results have never been verified with real-world events.
“The models only reflect the warming, not its cause.”
The most recent global warming was between 1850 and 1940, the authors say, and was therefore probably not caused by man-made greenhouse gases.
Historical evidence of the natural cycle includes a record of floods on the Nile going back 5,000 years; Roman wine production in Britain in the first century AD; and thousands of museum paintings that portray sunnier skies during what is called the Medieval Warming, and more clouds during the Little Ice Age.
The authors looked at a raft of studies which, they claim, undermine the “scare-mongering” by those blaming man for destroying the planet.
