I Thought All Scientists Agreed About Global Warming?

Maybe the world isn't ending after all. More skeptics in the scientific community are emerging. Now hopefully the hysteria will die down.

Here is a US Senate Minority Report on the subject:

“I am a skeptic…Global warming has become a new religion.” - Nobel Prize Winner for Physics, Ivar Giaever.

“Since I am no longer affiliated with any organization nor receiving any funding, I can speak quite frankly….As a scientist I remain skeptical. “The main basis of the claim that man’s release of greenhouse gases is the cause of the warming is based almost entirely upon climate models. We all know the frailty of models concerning the air-surface system” - Atmospheric Scientist Dr. Joanne Simpson, the first woman in the world to receive a PhD in meteorology, and formerly of NASA, who has authored more than 190 studies and has been called “among the most preeminent scientists of the last 100 years.”

Warming fears are the “worst scientific scandal in the history…When people come to know what the truth is, they will feel deceived by science and scientists.”
- UN IPCC Japanese Scientist Dr. Kiminori Itoh, an award-winning PhD environmental physical chemist.

“The IPCC has actually become a closed circuit; it doesn’t listen to others. It doesn’t have open minds… I am really amazed that the Nobel Peace Prize has been given on scientifically incorrect conclusions by people who are not geologists,”
- Indian geologist Dr. Arun D. Ahluwalia at Punjab University and a board member of the UN-supported International Year of the Planet.

I'm curious how green militants read this type of thing? Do they even consider the possibility that there might be more to this issue than they think? I wonder what David Suzuki would say about this?

  1. The first Earth Day was in 1970. At the time there was a prediction that the Earth would quickly return to an ice age. Human beings will always have a need for an end of the world scenario. Armageddon, I have heard them all, ice age, meteor crashes, alien invasion, oil running out,the list is endless.
