Yes, it is true that Dr. Patrick Moore said in a speech—“Why I am a Climate Change Skeptic”—to the International Conference on Climate Change last July:
My skepticism begins with the believers’ certainty they can predict the
global climate with a computer model. The entire basis for the doomsday
climate change scenario is the hypothesis increased atmospheric carbon
dioxide due to fossil fuel emissions will heat the Earth to unlivable
In fact, the Earth has been warming very gradually for 300 years, since
the Little Ice Age ended, long before heavy use of fossil fuels. Prior to
the Little Ice Age, during the Medieval Warm Period, Vikings colonized
Greenland and Newfoundland, when it was warmer there than today.
And during Roman times, it was warmer, long before fossil fuels
The idea it would be catastrophic if carbon dioxide were to increase and
average global temperature were to rise a few degrees is preposterous.
In short, Dr. Moore now holds the position of sane environmentalists—like The Motley Monk--who believe it is a moral imperative to “care” for the biosphere but, at the same time, hold there is no scientific proof of the carbon dioxide hypothesis touted by those who worship at the altar of environmentalism.
Dr. Moore’s solution?
I say the Earth would be a lot deader with no carbon dioxide [the goal
of those who worship at the altar of evironmentalism], and more of it
will be a very positive factor in feeding the world. Let’s celebrate
Those who worship at the altar of environmentalism are increasingly sounding like alchemists.
Let the discussion begin…
