Several scientists have published work that provides an alternative to the idea that man made CO2 is the cause of global warming.
Prof. Ole Humlum:
1. [Observations show] The temperature rise begins at sea level and spreads gradually to the land and atmosphere several months later. This is contrary to the IPCC CO2 hypothesis that atmospheric CO2 controls land and ocean temperature.
2. The geographical distribution of a CO2 increase doesn't start at 30-50
Climate models are being run on ever faster supercomputers, but they don't seem to be getting any better.
Most people are interested in one output of climate models, which are predictions of average global temperatures. But models also have results for several other critical variables such as precipitation and regional or local temperatures. It is these latter things that require the spacial information that costs so much in computer time to determine.
Here in no particular order are some of the issues that skeptics of anthropogenic global warming theory are raising:
1. Global climate models have never been proven to have predictive power and are unlikely to ever be accurate in their current form. These models can be tweaked to reproduce known climate data but when tested prospectively, on their ability to predict what will happen, they fail rather badly.
To the extent that the trend up to 15 years ago was a straight
2016: Obama's America is the latest foray by conservatives into political film making, an art that Michael Moore used with some success earlier.
The movie is all about Obama's relationship with his father, a guy he really hardly knew. His father was an anti-colonialist, and Obama's first book, "Dreams of My Father", was all about how he came to be obsessed by his father's ideas. All through the movie Obama himself his heard quoting passages from this book (taken from the
