You may have seen this video before. It’s been around for awhile, but this is a good time to watch once again. Bob Carter, noted critic of climate change alarmism, says we must acknowledge that human activity has an effect on local climates, in some cases warming, in others, cooling. The case for global effects is greatly overstated by the alarmists. CO2 is a minor green house gas and will affect warming, but doubling CO2 from pre-industrial times will result in only a one degree warming. Most of that effect has already occurred. It is a waste of money to impose draconian limits on emissions and causes unnecessary harm to economies.
Scientists are so intimidated against speaking out against the alarmist view, no one knows what the consensus is. In Carter’s opinion, the majority of scientists think it is prudent to look at the human effect on climate, but at the moment we cannot say that effect is above the level of “noise”.
He warns that the real climate danger is global cooling. We may very well be in for a cooling something like that of the Little Ice Age.
We are frighteningly close to having the radical alarmists win this one.
