“I am a skeptic…Global warming has become a new religion.” - Nobel Prize Winner for
Physics, Ivar Giaever.
“Since I am no longer affiliated with any organization nor receiving any funding,
I can speak quite frankly….As a scientist I remain skeptical...The main basis of
the claim that man’s release of greenhouse gases is the cause of the warming is based
almost entirely upon climate models. We all know the frailty of models concerning
the air-surface system.” - Atmospheric Scientist Dr. Joanne Simpson, the first woman
in the world to receive a PhD in meteorology, and formerly of NASA, who has authored
more than 190 studies and has been called “among the most preeminent scientists of
the last 100 years.”
Warming fears are the “worst scientific scandal in the history…When people come to
know what the truth is, they will feel deceived by science and scientists.” - UN
IPCC Japanese Scientist Dr. Kiminori Itoh, an award-winning PhD environmental physical
“The IPCC has actually become a closed circuit; it doesn’t listen to others. It doesn’t
have open minds… I am really amazed that the Nobel Peace Prize has been given on
scientifically incorrect conclusions by people who are not geologists.” - Indian
geologist Dr. Arun D. Ahluwalia at Punjab University and a board member of the UN-supported
International Year of the Planet.
“So far, real measurements give no ground for concern about a catastrophic future
warming.” - Scientist Dr. Jarl R. Ahlbeck, a chemical engineer at Abo Akademi University
in Finland, author of 200 scientific publications and former Greenpeace member.
“Anyone who claims that the debate is over and the conclusions are firm has a fundamentally
unscientific approach to one of the most momentous issues of our time.” - Solar physicist
Dr. Pal Brekke, senior advisor to the Norwegian Space Centre in Oslo. Brekke has
published more than 40 peer-reviewed scientific articles on the sun and solar interaction
with the Earth.
“The models and forecasts of the UN IPCC "are incorrect because they only are based
on mathematical models and presented results at scenarios that do not include, for
example, solar activity.” - Victor Manuel Velasco Herrera, a researcher at the Institute
of Geophysics of the National Autonomous University of Mexico
“It is a blatant lie put forth in the media that makes it seem there is only a fringe
of scientists who don’t buy into anthropogenic global warming.” - U.S Government
Atmospheric Scientist Stanley B. Goldenberg of the Hurricane Research Division of
“Even doubling or tripling the amount of carbon dioxide will virtually have little
impact, as water vapour and water condensed on particles as clouds dominate the worldwide
scene and always will.” – . Geoffrey G. Duffy, a professor in the Department of Chemical
and Materials Engineering of the University of Auckland, NZ.
“After reading [UN IPCC chairman] Pachauri's asinine comment [comparing skeptics
to] Flat Earthers, it's hard to remain quiet.” - Climate statistician Dr. William
M. Briggs, who specializes in the statistics of forecast evaluation, serves on the
Meteorological Society's Probability and Statistics Committee and is an Associate
Editor of Monthly Weather Review.
“The Kyoto theorists have put the cart before the horse. It is global warming that
triggers higher levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, not the other way round…A
large number of critical documents submitted at the 1995 U.N. conference in Madrid
vanished without a trace. As a result, the discussion was one-sided and heavily biased,
and the U.N. declared global warming to be a scientific fact,” Andrei Kapitsa, a
Russian geographer and Antarctic ice core researcher.
“I am convinced that the current alarm over carbon dioxide is mistaken...Fears about
man-made global warming are unwarranted and are not based on good science.” -Award
Winning Physicist Dr. Will Happer, Professor at the Department of Physics at Princeton
University and Former Director of Energy Research at the Department of Energy, who
has published over 200 scientific papers, and is a fellow of the American Physical
Society, The American Association for the Advancement of Science, and the National
Academy of Sciences.
“Nature's regulatory instrument is water vapor: more carbon dioxide leads to less
moisture in the air, keeping the overall GHG content in accord with the necessary
balance conditions.” – Prominent Hungarian Physicist and environmental researcher
Dr. Miklós Zágoni reversed his view of man-made warming and is now a skeptic. Zágoni
was once Hungary’s most outspoken supporter of the Kyoto Protocol.
“For how many years must the planet cool before we begin to understand that the planet
is not warming? For how many years must cooling go on?" - Geologist Dr. David Gee
the chairman of the science committee of the 2008 International Geological Congress
who has authored 130 plus peer reviewed papers, and is currently at Uppsala University
“Gore prompted me to start delving into the science again and I quickly found myself
solidly in the skeptic camp…Climate models can at best be useful for explaining climate
changes after the fact.” - Meteorologist Hajo Smit of Holland, who reversed his belief
in man-made warming to become a skeptic, is a former member of the Dutch UN IPCC
“The quantity of CO2 we produce is insignificant in terms of the natural circulation
between air, water and soil... I am doing a detailed assessment of the UN IPCC reports
and the Summaries for Policy Makers, identifying the way in which the Summaries have
distorted the science.” - South Afican Nuclear Physicist and Chemical Engineer Dr.
Philip Lloyd, a UN IPCC co-coordinating lead author who has authored over 150 refereed
“Many [scientists] are now searching for a way to back out quietly (from promoting
warming fears), without having their professional careers ruined.” - Atmospheric
physicist James A. Peden, formerly of the Space Research and Coordination Center
“All those urging action to curb global warming need to take off the blinkers and
give some thought to what we should do if we are facing global cooling instead.”
- Geophysicist Dr. Phil Chapman, an astronautical engineer and former NASA astronaut,
served as staff physicist at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology)
“Creating an ideology pegged to carbon dioxide is a dangerous nonsense…The present
alarm on climate change is an instrument of social control, a pretext for major businesses
and political battle. It became an ideology, which is concerning.” -
Environmental Scientist Professor Delgado Domingos of Portugal, the founder of the
Numerical Weather Forecast group, has more than 150 published articles.
“CO2 emissions make absolutely no difference one way or another….Every scientist
knows this, but it doesn’t pay to say so…Global warming, as a political vehicle,
keeps Europeans in the driver’s seat and developing nations walking barefoot.” -
Dr. Takeda Kunihiko, vice-chancellor of the Institute of Science and Technology Research
at Chubu University in Japan.
“The [global warming] scaremongering has its justification in the fact that it is
something that generates funds.” - Award-winning Paleontologist Dr. Eduardo Tonni,
of the Committee for Scientific Research in Buenos Aires and head of the Paleontology
Department at the University of La Plata.
“Whatever the weather, it's not being caused by global warming. If anything, the
climate may be starting into a cooling period.” Atmospheric scientist Dr. Art V.
Douglas, former Chair of the Atmospheric Sciences Department at Creighton University
in Omaha, Nebraska, and is the author of numerous papers for peer-reviewed publications.
“But there is no falsifiable scientific basis whatever to assert this warming is
caused by human-produced greenhouse gasses because current physical theory is too
grossly inadequate to establish any cause at all.” - Chemist Dr. Patrick Frank, who
has authored more than 50 peer-reviewed articles.
“The ‘global warming scare’ is being used as a political tool to increase government
control over American lives, incomes and decision making. It has no place in the
Society's activities.” - Award-Winning NASA Astronaut/Geologist and Moonwalker Jack
Schmitt who flew on the Apollo 17 mission and formerly of the Norwegian Geological
Survey and for the U.S. Geological Survey.
“Earth has cooled since 1998 in defiance of the predictions by the UN-IPCC….The global
temperature for 2007 was the coldest in a decade and the coldest of the millennium…which
is why ‘global warming’ is now called ‘climate change.’” -
Climatologist Dr. Richard Keen of the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences
at the University of Colorado.
“I have yet to see credible proof of carbon dioxide driving climate change, yet alone
man-made CO2 driving it. The atmospheric hot-spot is missing and the ice core data
refute this. When will we collectively awake from this deceptive delusion?” - Dr.
G LeBlanc Smith, a retired Principal Research Scientist with Australia’s CSIRO.
