Geologist Dr. Bob Carter: Climate Scare is an abuse of science: ‘To call carbon dioxide a pollutant  is an abuse of logic; is an abuse of language and it’s an abuse of science’

Climate Scare is an abuse of science

Fred Singer of the University of Virginia and Professor Bob Carter, ICSC Chief Science Advisor and former head of the School of Earth Sciences at James Cook University, Australia. Singer: There is no evidence at all that we can find that humans are contributing in a substantial way to climate change. Nothing to worry about; its bunkum!Carter: A trained scientist will tell you what Dr Singer has already told you: there is no evidence that human carbon dioxide emissions are causing dangerous global warming. Indeed, carbon dioxide emissions are an environmental benefice. It makes plants grow; it is plant food. It greens the planet.Bob asks why does the Green environmental movement call Carbon Dioxide a pollutant. (If they were truly “green” they would welcome increased carbon dioxide.)Carter: To call carbon dioxide a pollutant  isan abuse of logic;is an abuse of languageand it’s an abuse of scienceThe Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC) report referenced by Professor Singer may be seen here.Joe Bast and Jim Lakely, both of the Chicago-based Heartland Institute, join Mr. Coleman later in the program.Coleman: It is a very difficult thing to defeat this bad science….Bast: Research that has been done now shows that the human influence on climate is very small; it’s a – KUSI News – San Diego CA – News, Weather, PPR

Climate Depot’s Round Up on Global Warming and Meat Eating, Agriculture and Cows

The warmists have proposed really disgusting “solutions” to meat eating: See: ‘Poop burgers’ to save the planet! Japanese scientist creates artificial meat from human feces

In 2006, a UN report blamed cows for global warming:  See: Cow ’emissions’ more damaging to planet than CO2 from cars: UN report: ‘Livestock are responsible for 18 per cent of the greenhouse gases that cause global warming, more than cars, planes and all other forms of transport put together’

But then, these claims fell into dispute: UN admits flaw in report on meat and climate change: Admits ‘a report linking livestock to global warming exaggerated impact of eating meat on climate change’

More Woes: UN body to look at meat and climate link after claims that earlier UN report exaggerated the link

Report: Vegetarians are wrong and eating less meat will NOT save planet — Study finds ‘exaggerated links between farming and global warming’

Flashback September 2009: Science not so ‘settled’: Study rebuts UN livestock emission claims – Meat Eaters Off the Hook?

Then, we have very frightening activists proposing new “solutions” to correct meat eaters. See: NYU Bioethicist S. Matthew Liao again suggests ‘voluntarily’ medicating the public and shrinking humans to make them care more about global warming — Liao: ‘The stuff that we looked at are things we currently already can do. So they are not meant to be very farfetched scenarios. They are meant to be realistic. — ‘Screen for embryos that are expected to be shorter. Another possibility is you can get hormone treatments…We can use that technology to have smaller children’

NYU Bioethicist Prof. Liao on Eating meat: Seeks to ‘Make ourselves allergic to those proteins…unpleasant reaction…The way we can do that is to create some sort of meat patch’ — ‘Kind of like a nicotine patch where you put it on before you go to dinner go out to restaurant and this will curb your enthusiasm for eating meat’

The global warming activists are still convinced meat eating is evil for our climate: 

Animal Rights’ Peter Singer: ‘Why are they serving meat at a climate conference?’ — The best thing conference could do for climate is to remove meat from menu —and to make a big deal about it’ — ‘No one really believes Rio+20 meeting will result in a new …

Greens questioning Organic food: Agricultural scientist Steve Savage: ‘Contrary to widespread consumer belief, organic farming is not the best way to farm from an environmental point if view’

Claim: ORGANIC FOOD: JUST A SUPERSTITION — ‘If organic were healthier, African subsistence farmers would have been outliving American housewives and stockbrokers for the past 90 years’ 

Study: Benefits of organic food a ‘myth’: ‘Does not have greater nutritional value than conventionally grown food’ 

New study finds ‘organic crops yield 25% less overall than conventional crops’ — ‘Debunks claims by organic activists that organic yields can equal or exceed conventional yields’ — ‘I will continue to believe what I saw with my own eyes while carrying out over 500 organic farm inspections: that organic yields are closer to half what conventional and biotech yields are’
