Climate Change Science Essay

Technical Rating: star
A Comprehensive Essay on Climate Change Science. This is a graphically intensive essay on most aspects of climate change with links to supporting data. Compiled by Ken Gregory. The sun is the main driver of climate change. Water vapor and clouds reduce the initial warming effect of CO2 missions.

NIPCC: Climate Change Reconsidered II - 2013-2015

Technical Rating: star
The reports by the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC) provides the scientific balance that is missing from the overly alarmists reports of the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which are highly selective in their review of climate science. The report "Physical Science" shows that the warming due to CO2 emission will be modest and cause no net harm to the global environment or to human well-being. Negative feedbacks in the climate system reduce the model derived temperature sensitivity to values an order of magnitude smaller. Earth's surface temperature are largely driven by variations in solar activity, which may have contributed as much as 66% of the observed 20th century warming. - The report "Biological Impacts" shows that higher CO2 levels and warming enhances crop yields and has resulted in the greening of the earth.

A Skeptic's Submission to the Alberta Climate Change Advisory Panel

The climate has always changed and will continue to change regardless of any action taken by Albertans or the world to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Natural forces have caused dramatic climate change in the past. Climate model simulation of temperature do not match the observations indicating that the models are not suitable for making policy decisions. The climate is relatively insensitive to carbon dioxide emissions. Models used to calculate the social costs of carbon dioxide ignore many benefits, most notably, CO2 fertilization, and exaggerates the costs.

Views on the Influence of CO2 on Climate

Dr. Thoenes of the Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands, presents his views on the influence of CO2 on global climate change for the Friends of Science Society. His commentary concludes that "it is impossible that a significant climate change can take place due to rising CO2-emissions. This means then that all measures to reduce CO2-emissions are useless. This would have enormous financial consequences for society."

Better to Have Global Warming than Global Cooling

Dr. Patrick Moore is a co-founder of Greenpeace. He says "there is no conclusive proof that human emissions of carbon dioxide are the dominant cause of the minor warming of the Earth’s atmosphere over the past 100 years." Looking at the geological record, he writes, "Then an ice age occurred 450 million years ago when CO2 was still about 10 times higher than today." He notes that we are a "tropical species" and that warming would be far better than cooling.
