CO2 warm­ing ex­perts in­flu­enced by money?

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - - Letters And Opinion -

It is good to see some in­ter­est in man­made global warm­ing [‘What are writer’s qual­i­fi­ca­tions’, Let­ters, Jan 18].

I freely ad­mit that I am not a trained cli­ma­tol­o­gist, but be­ing a Fel­low of the In­sti­tute of Mea­sure­ment and Con­trol does give me a sci­en­tific out­look and some ap­pre­ci­a­tion of feed-for­ward, etc.

My point is that the weight of com­ment is so heav­ily in favour of the story of global heat­ing be­ing due to an in­crease in CO2, it seems sus­pi­ciously as though these ‘ex­perts’ are strongly in­flu­enced by the fi­nan­cial as­sis­tance they get in grants and sup­port from the ‘green blob’. It has been proved that Michael Mann ‘ad­justed’ real records to pro­duce his in­fa­mous ‘J’ curve. Why?

I re­mem­ber the 1970s when the same ex­perts were promis­ing thick ice ev­ery­where.

It is well worth read­ing the blog Not A Lot Of Peo­ple Know That by Paul Home­wood to get a con­trary view. How many decades must we wait to find out if the the­ory is true? RG Bar­ton, St Martin’s Hill, Can­ter­bury
