The Official AGW skeptics thread
I want a blog on CAPS where I can easily reference and find all of the many blogs written recently regarding Climategate and AGW skepticism in general. Like a good individualist, I'm going to go ahead and do that myself right now.
This is really a hat tip to ChrisGraley, nzsvz9, IIcx, and the many CAPS members who have come forward to present skeptical analysis of the Anthropogenic Global Warming theory, have commented on my blogs or ChrisGraley's. Recently, I've wanted to reference pieces of information here and there for discussion with friends and co-workers, most of whom have only vaguely been introduced to the vast amount of information contradicting AGW theory and exposing rampant dishonesty and corruption in the IPCC/AGW process. Centralizing all that info seemed a good idea. So let's give it a shot. If you can work your way through all of these posts and comments, you'd be..... old by the time you're done. But they are a great source of information and I hope you find them useful.
Global Warming: Are 31,000 Skeptical Scientists Wrong? by Goldminingxpert
I'm starting with this one for a couple of reasons. First, it's the first time I started looking at AGW theory with personal skepticism. Second, after placing in context the recent revelations against the IPCC and its crew of merry bunglers, the comments section of Goldminingxpert's blog is quite hilarious. Take for example:
If you want to know if global warming is good science, look at the actual research being published on it, where that research is published and how strongly reviewed it is. - rofgile
LOL, now that's funny!
We Can't Stop Global Warming by Goldminingxpert
The third article of a three part presentation by GMX. Like his previous ones, the comments section provids a good laugh (that's a running theme it turns out.)
Why Cap and Trade is Good for Everyone!!! by ChrisGraley
An introduction to the humorous implications of AGW illogic.
My 4th Grade Level Science Class on Global Warming by ChrisGraley
Chock full of great information, more than I could have handled in the 4th grade.... or the 12th grade for that matter.
60 years and 0.5 deg C how and how data and public perception can be manipulated! by ChrisGraley
Chris takes a closer look at tree ring data and satellite readings. Ugh, he doesn't like what he finds.
30 Years of Global Cooling Are Coming, Leading Scientist Says by ChrisGraley
I have an idea. Maybe the planet will warm, then cool, then warm a little, then cool some more, and then do something else. Problem is, there's no money in researching that theory.
Physicist Howard Hayden's one-letter disproof of global warming claims by whereaminow
My first foray into the AGW debate. Ah, the nostalgia!
Hacked AGW Scientists Emails Paint Ugly Picture by whereaminow
Introducing Climategate to the Fool community. It's a been a wild ride ever since (unless you are an AGW supporter. Burying your head in the sand isn't fun at all.)
The Inconvenient Emails by whereaminow
A closer look at the CRU emails and a skeptical scientist's response.
The Inconvenient Leak by whereaminow
Climategate evolves. Was it an inside job? Did a disgruntled programmer named Harry help the Ruskies get inside? We may never know.
The $22.6 Million Dollar Scientist and a Scandal in New Zealand by whereaminow
Turns out one of our leading AGW scientists makes quite a killing researching this farce. I wonder if this little socialist wannabe uses the Labor Theory of Value to calculate how much his flunkies should be paid for their cut of the loot?
Meet Harry the Programmer by whereaminow
Harry, our hero, has a problem. He needs to make these climate change models workable. Trouble is, he's in a little over his head.
HIde the Decline Put in Context by Steven McIntrye
Hockey Stick debunker extraordinaire Steven McIntyre responds to critics claiming that "hide the decline" is a phrase taken out of context. Steve obliges, putting it back in context, only to find out it paints an even worse picture for the AGW theorists.
Aviation pioneer and master engineer Burt Rutan on Global Warming
Burt Rutan, the second most celebrated aviation engineer behind Hugo Junkers, is bored. So he spends the summer analyzing various aspects of AGW theory. Then he gives a 60 minute video presentation debunking just about every piece of nonsense he came across. Poor quality videos. Fantastic quality presentation.
Glacier scientist: I knew data hadn't been verified
Hot off the presses. What do you get when you mix a megalomaniacal environmentalist, a Nobel prize committee, and the IPCC? Two words: peer review. This story is classic.
Save the planet and pass the Kool-Aid by Lienbuster
Lienbuster breaks the Himalayan glacier fiasco to the Fool community.
So this is the start of a collection of Global Warming skepticism. I hope you'll add any that I've missed to the comments section and continue to do so in the future.
