A Growing Number of Scientists Are Reconsidering Climate Change

Written by 

The SunThe past couple of years have seen many prominent scientists, including former leading global-warming alarmists, converting to the climate “skeptic” or “realist” camp. However, most Americans are unaware of these defections, since the major media censor these stories, while continuing to hype unfounded predictions of impending climate catastrophe.

One of the most recent scientists to switch sides is Dr. Kerry Emanuel, professor of Atmospheric Science at M.I.T. and the most famous proponent of the claim that man-made global warming is causing more frequent and intense hurricanes. But in March Dr. Emanuel and two associates pulled a great reversal, publishing an article in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Association reporting on their new computer modeling that suggests hurricane frequency and intensity may not rise over the next two centuries even if warmer trends continue. “The results surprised me,” Emanuel said of his work in an interview with the Houston Chronicle in April. “The take-home message is that we’ve got a lot of work to do. There’s still a lot of uncertainty in this problem.”

Dr. Miklos Zagoni, one of Hungary’s most prominent physicists and global-warming activists, now says: “Runaway greenhouse theories contradict energy balance equations” and the most recent research data. Emanuel and Zagoni join many other recent converts from climate alarmism, such as: Canadian fisheries expert Dr. Tad Murty; French geophysicist Dr. Claude Allegre; Australian mathematician Dr. David Evans; Canadian paleoclimatologist Dr. Ian D. Clark; Polish physicist Dr. Zbigniew Jaworowski; and Israeli astrophysicist Dr. Nir Shaviv. Famed British botanist and climate alarmist Dr. David Bellamy now calls global-warming fears “poppycock” and says “global warming is largely a natural phenomenon.”
