Former NASA Scientist: Global Warming Is 'Nonsense'

From Newsmax.com:

A prominent scientist and former NASA researcher has added his voice to those who challenge the "scientific fact" that manmade carbon emissions are causing global warming.
Dr. Leslie Woodcock is a professor emeritus of chemical thermodynamics at the University of Manchester in England, with a Ph.D. from the University of London, and served as a senior research consultant at the Wright-Patterson Air Force Laboratory in Ohio.
In an interview with Britain's Yorkshire Evening Post, Woodcock declared: "The theory of 'manmade climate change' is an unsubstantiated hypothesis.
"The theory is that CO2 emitted by burning fossil fuel causes 'global warming.' In fact, water is a much more powerful greenhouse gas and there is 20 times more of it in our atmosphere [than carbon dioxide].
"Carbon dioxide has been made out to be some kind of toxic gas but the truth is it's the gas of life. We breathe it out, plants breathe it in. The green lobby has created a do-good industry and it becomes a way of life, like a religion. I understand why people defend it when they have spent so long believing in it."
Woodcock is also a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry, a founding editor of the journal Molecular Simulation, a recipient of a Max Planck Society Visiting Fellowship, and a former guest scientist at the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology.
He went on to say: "If you talk to real scientists who have no political interest, they will tell you there is nothing in global warming. It's an industry which creates vast amounts of money for some people.
"The temperature of the earth has been going up and down for millions of years. If there are extremes, it's nothing to do with carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, it's not permanent and it's not caused by us. Global warming is nonsense.
"It's become almost an industry, as a consequence of this professional misconduct by government advisers around the world."
But he added: "You can't blame ordinary people with little or no science education for wanting to be seen to be good citizens who care about their grandchildren's future and the environment."

As long as I can't actually see the air I'm breathing,smog etc,then I'm not too concerned about the climate's ability to change over time.Seems like it's done this my whole life.

Beat me to it; those guys are bat-Posted Image crazy. As for the topic, the term global warming went out years ago because of people's misunderstanding of the term.

But the current climate changes and future consequences are unprecedented; and unfortunately early estimates and predictions are beginning to look like they were extremely optimistic... things are happening much faster than anticipated.

Saw another special on the polar ice caps melting, with a scientist who's been taking the measurements and keeping the records for years, and it was rather eye-opening.

And there's a perfect example of someone misinterpreting the term of global warming, GU.

I quoted PT saying that it was getting cold tonight, thus calling Global Warming BS.
It's more Climate Change, meaning that extreme temperatures is actually confirming the theory rather than disproving it.

:lol: Oh, yeah, I missed the PT quote. Exactly, erratic extremes and temps out of season are the effects; not just overall warming.

The climate always changes.  The term global warming fell out of use because its bullPosted Image.  We just had the worst winter ever here.  If you want to say the weather is acting like a crazy ex girlfriend, then call it that.  Don't call it global warming and then get saucy when I point out it hasn't been warmer at all, call it crazy ass weather and that you think it has to do with pollution.  At least that would be accurate.

That's why I think the term global warming is inaccurate, and stupid, because while it can be warming, it is more bipolar.
Whoever decided to use that term instead of simply climate change to address the public really wasn't thinking.

There are several events that could restore our glaziers and ice caps and I pray they don't happen.
