Two German physicists have written a paper debunking the "theory" of the greenhouse gas effect by demonstrating how it violates basic laws of physics. Their paper, Falsification of the Atmospheric CO2 Greenhouse Effects Within the Frame of Physics, was published last year in the peer-reviewed International Journal of Modern Physics.
The scandal surrounding alarmist claims by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) continues to build. The reputation of the IPCC had already been severely undermined by the “Climategate” scandal and the political implosion of the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen. Now, as reported previously for The New American, the IPCC is at the center of a new scandal following revelations that its statements regarding the alleged shrinkage of the Himalayan glaciers relied on the claims of one scientist who had not undergone peer review.
A leading UN climate scientist predicts Earth will experience a period of cooling for the next three decades, according to a recent FoxNews.com article. Items in New Scientist and the UK's Daily Mail repeat the same news, and each of them cites the same source: Mojib Latif, a professor at Germany's Kiel University and a contributor to the 2007 climate assessment report published by the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
The recently concluded United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen, known in UN-speak as COP15, provides a timely glimpse into a brave new zoological carboniferous epoch. As we all “know” by now, anthropogenic (man-made) global warming, or AGW, is the mother of all apocalypses, threatening all life in the universe, and causing every woe imaginable, from blizzards and droughts to tsunamis, earthquakes, cancer, dandruff, halitosis, toenail fungus, drug addiction, prostitution, and inflation.
The world of climate change is heating up with news that forecasts contained in the United Nation's 2007 climate report were based on misquoted speculation by an Indian glaciologist from an interview published nearly a decade earlier.
