Anti-Science Climate Deniers On The Retreat In Germany

The Scientific Method struck a valiant blow against climate denialism in Germany this week, as scientists from around the globe gathered to sort out climate change facts from fiction. The climate change conference, hosted by the European Institute for Climate and Energy (known by its German acronym EIKE) and cosponsored by the Heartland Institute, attracted nearly 200 attendees and marks ongoing global momentum in favor of sound science and against factually unsupported alarmism.

American atmospheric physicist S. Fred Singer, whose resume of scientific accomplishments runs longer than Al Gore’s obscene electricity usage (see here), explained how natural variance accounts for most of the global warming of the past century. The German attendees treated Singer like a rock star. Nils-Axel Morner, former head of the Paleogeophysics and Geodynamics Department at Stockholm University, documented a dramatic deceleration of sea level rise during the past 40 years. Nir Shaviv, a professor of astrophysics at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, showed how cosmic rays account for much recent global warming. Journalist Donna Laframboise related how she discovered an appalling prevalence of incompetence and bias among lead authors for the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

The conference’s unmistakable lesson was that the scientific evidence is woefully short of supporting alarmist assertions that humans are causing a global warming crisis. To the extent the scientific evidence leads to a particular conclusion, the conclusion is that humans are modestly enhancing a natural warming cycle that fortunately rescued the planet from the Little Ice Age.

Several scientists pointed out that during most of the past 10,000 years, the time period since the last full-blown ice age glaciation ended, global temperatures were warmer than today. Global warming may be occurring, but global temperatures are far from surpassing the warmth experienced for much of the past 10,000 years.

The scientists documented how warming and cooling spells, many of which were more dramatic than our recent warming, have always occurred during the earth’s history. The mere fact that our present day climate shows a “climate change” of modest warming is far from unusual. Only climate change denialists assert that climate change is not a natural and ongoing occurrence.

This leads us back to the Scientific Method versus climate deniers. The Scientific Method demands a constant testing of theories. Under the Scientific Method, when a scientist proposes a scientific theory, she or he vigorously attempts to prove the theory wrong and then encourages others to do the same. Vigorous discussion and debate are encouraged, not vilified.

On the other hand, anti-science deniers pretend the Scientific Method doesn’t exist. Rather than encourage vigorous testing of scientific theories, they attempt to shout down the testers as “anti-science.” When someone challenges a particular scientific theory – again, something that is at the very heart of the Scientific Method – the deniers accuse the challenger as “attacking scientists” or “attacking science” itself.

“This conference shows that a growing number of people are challenging global warming alarmism even here in Germany, where alarmism is most deeply entrenched,” conference organizer Wolfgang Muller explained after the event. “Every year the conference grows in size and political impact. The government hates us for it.”

Scoreboard:

Scientific Method 1

Anti-science denialism 0

Interesting, thanks for posting.

I heard an interview on the National People's Radio the other day driving to work [yeah, I know it's crazy to work, but I am a creature of habit].

The person being interviewed was the head of the World Bank. I don't want to bore you with the hero worship of the interviewer, who was breathlessly questioning him and "amening" his every pronouncement, but here are a few things he said:

1. AGW caused Sandy.
2. AGW caused the drought in the USA.
3. AGW caused the drought in the USSR and caused 55,000 Russians to die.

At the end, he said to the "climate deniers" "go ask the 55,000 Russian dead if global warming is real".

Just like the USSR, we have to pay for our Pravada so we can hear [NPR] and see [PBS] the party line.

Every time you hear the BS propaganda, remember - the global tempurature has not gone up in 16 years.
Then ask yourself- do you want to live in a global ice age, or warming trend?
Ice ages are marked by the end of any advanced technological human activity and restriction to survival activities.
Warming trends are marked by increased human activity, technological advancement.

Bah, common sense and legitimate questions, who needs them. Its our fault I tell you. The government and its scientists say so. We "invented", oops, "are responsible" for this calamity and will suffer full consequences if we don't tow the line and do what needs to be done. Can we all say carbon tax, increased resource control/manipulation and future food control mechanisms. What a show..........

The 2nd Amendment is to blame for global warming.

Thing to remember is that 90% of the people shouting hardest about AGW :eek: DID NOT study the subject, and are grounded in completely different fields of endeavour :)

Head of the IPCC is a Railway Engineer

Al Gore is an Unqualified Blow Hard

Lord Stern (The Stern Report) is an Economist

And the crowd at the CRU were mostly Associate Lecturers, who spotted an opportunity to become Tenured Faculty Blokes :)

It is a troublesome part of modern life, that Most people will Not challenge the Credentials of the Messenger :( especially if the message concerns something of which there is a perception that one should be concerned.

This "global warming" scam is just a wealth transfer scam. The elites grab from the makers to pass it to the takers. The takers owe their souls to the elites in exchange for crumbs. The elites don't pull out of their own pockets. Hell, they even grab some vig before they pass out the ill gotten crumbs to the takers! The hypocrisy of it all amazes me. Aint socialism a kick?

:cool:

I would say Al Gore is a highly qualified blowhard. In fact, a professor of blowhard.

Every time I see him on something I ask how. How did this Neanderthal ever become anything more than a door to door vacuum salesman.

The only thing I think he ever might have 'inspired' was not a role on Love Story but the character of Lumpy Rutherford from Leave It To Beaver.

I honestly think he might be mentally retarded.

What of the people that voted for him in the past? :afraid:

He's worse than a blowhard. If he really believed in man made global warming, would he be flying all over the world, creating a thousand times the carbon emissions as the average joe?

He knows exactly what he is doing.

I have developed a New personal policy. I won't seriously discuss man made global warming with anyone crying about it unless they have gotten rid of (destroyed, not sold) any gas burning vehicles and refuse to use public transportation. Should also give up heating and air conditioning. And really, not be using any products produced by these things. See, if this is really 'destroying' the planet, why would they partake in it?

A true believer, of which I'll bet is a rare bird, would be living in the bush surviving on berries.

Even people who believe global warming is real and is a serious threat think Al Gore is a moron. He is probably the one most responsible for making it a political issue, so that now almost no one can talk about just the science without politics getting sucked into it.

The "global warming" issue was created in politics and, thankfully, it sucked science into it.

Gore and Clinton both exhibit the charisma of a psychopath. Psychopaths are CHARMING. I have a neighbor who positively worships them both.

Socialist greentards can't be bothered with independent research and fact-finding. They just glom onto someone who sounds 'truthy' and 'official' and CONFIDENT.

It's a simple, proven formula that has enabled psychopaths to run rings around us for eons.

That's just it, I don't see it. How is Gore charming? He comes off to me as a complete moron. Like Ron Burgundy.

Remember when he kind of lost it and went around the country made up like a lumberjack? Like some 17 year old looking for his identity.
