I will admit to starting the day as a CO2 agnostic.There is so many links in the chain that holds the global warming argument together that I can only focus effort on so many of them. As a Scientist and Engineer, my particular interest is in feedbacks and climate variability. These I know don’t work. As an MBA graduate I know the economic case is just voodoo economics.
These were enough for me. These alone were enough for any reasonable person not to waste public money trying to reduce CO2.
I didn’t need more. I didn’t need to worry whether the CO2 was man-made. It made no difference whether or not it was, because so much else was already wrong. I really didn’t want to hear CO2 was not man-made.
But having seen the case put forward by Prof Salby I cannot reasonably say “I assume the rise was man-made”. But much worse! Without properly assessing the evidence I cannot properly say he is right – that the CO2 rise does not appear man-made.
Will I now be called a “CO2 Denier” … or whatever name these hateful zealots dream up?
That is why I didn’t like the talk … because I could well do without another finding another bit of climate “science” which is rubbish. Another aspect of the global warming argument that is junk. Another aspect I will have to research. Another hold-the-nose and try not to breath in stench filled crawl through the hateful underbelly of global warming non-science trying to find any kind of evidence against what Prof Murry Salby said.
Thank you Murry!
