Rising temperature debate hots up
ERROL Conroy last week referred to some man recorded facts about climate change —temperature changes since 1880 and solar energy output since 1755.
However, he ignored scientific facts revealed by ice cores and rocks, that show climate has been changing long before mankind evolved, which show that long-term atmospheric temperatures and carbon dioxide concentrations have been both higher and lower than since mankind started recording.
Supposed climate scientists want continued funding to fine tune incomplete computer models, but cannot explain why climate has always changed and will continue to change.
He also asserted that “the rate of change of many climate parameters recently is unprecedented and alarming”.
Actually, “recent” temperature changes show they have failed to live up to the alarming computer model predictions, as temperatures have virtually plateaued since about the year 2000, which corresponds to when mankind has burnt coal more than all time before 2000.
