The politically correct ones are saying is not the sun, but man the cause of
global warming and is also man who can solve the problem. This is another
example of ego-centered thinking and I’m afraid it will cause lots of
suffering for many people on earth.
Dr. Zichichi is "President of the World Federation of Scientists, Pontifical
Council for Justice and Peace, past president of the European Physical
Society, past president of the Italian National Institute for Nuclear and
Subnuclear Physics, and past president of the NATO Science Committee for
Disarmament Technology, and has published over 800 scientific papers and 10
books, some of which have opened new avenues in subnuclear physics. He has
received numerous awards and honorary degrees from academic institutions
around the world, and is the subject of seven books published by others
about his accomplishments.
He is also Italy's most renowned scientist, credited with the discovery of
nuclear antimatter, the discovery of the "time-like" electromagnetic
structure of the proton, the discovery of the effective energy in the forces
which act between quarks and gluons, and the proof that, despite its complex
structure, it is impossible to break the proton.
As of June 13, 2007, not even his name much less his comments about the IPCC
can be found in a search of news stories on CNN, ABC, FoxNews, MSNBC, or
Reuters nor is there even one mention of a Google news story involving his
name - which basically means no major media outlet covered it.
He said that "that models used by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate
Change (IPCC) are incoherent and invalid from a scientific point of view",
according to Zenit.org, the Catholic news service. He went on to say that
"the IPCC used "the method of 'forcing' to arrive at their conclusions that
human activity produces meteorological variations." Not a very strong
endorsement of their methods! He also pointed out that "on the basis of
actual scientific fact it is not possible to exclude the idea that climate
changes can be due to natural causes, and that it is plausible that man is
not to blame. He told the attendees that he attributes "less than 10% of the
observed climate change to human causes and that solar forcing is the
Christopher Horner, in his recently published book The Politically Incorrect
Guide to Global Warming and Environmentalism (2007), gives a lively account
of the data Gore omits that contradict his global warming alarmism,
especially with regard to hurricane frequency and severity and the increase
in weather-related damages. He also addresses the film’s misrepresentations
and some outright falsehoods.
The day after he won his Academy Award The Tennessean reported that Gore’s
electrical and natural gas bills for his home in Nashville in 2006 were
$27,360. This amount of energy, all of it generated from fossil fuels, is
more than 20 times than that consumed by the average American household.
Climate scientists are awarded $1.7 billion a year in government grants to
study climate change, but under the condition that these scientists continue
to support the "consensus" or lose their funding. Climate scientist Richard
Lindzen, in Climate of Fear, writes : "Scientists who dissent from the
alarmism have seen their grant funds disappear, their work derided, and
themselves libeled as industry stooges, scientific hacks or worse.
Consequently, lies about climate change gain credence even when they fly in
the face of the Science that supposedly is their basis."
