In response to a letter in the Telegraph on 19th April from the President of the Royal Society, Lord Rees of Ludlow, asserting that the evidence for human-caused global warming “is now compelling”, 41 scientists have written to the same newspaper contradicting Lord Rees. Published in the the Telegraph today, the letter claims:
1. Global climate changes all the time due to natural causes and the human impact still remains impossible to distinguish from this natural ‘noise’, and
2. Observational evidence does not support today’s computer climate models, so there is little reason to trust model predictions of the future.
This is the third ‘climate change consensus’ letter in as many weeks, click here for links to previous letters.
Edward Celiz from Bodham Halt, Norfolk, has written to the newspaper complaining that:
“If I read another word about climate change, I shall go mad. Of course the climate is changing. That is what climate does, and has done so for billions of years. Do these scare-mongering pseudo-scientists really believe that puny man can control the unimaginable forces of nature by sticking a windmill on his roof, throwing away his fridge and planting a few trees?
Global warming? Perhaps, but what’s the betting that in a few years they will be telling us that they have got it wrong? That, in fact, the earth is getting colder?
My advice? Leave it to God.”
And I’m an atheist.
