Global Warming Excesses

While I am thinking about the corruption of science by scienticism, I thought this video was interesting. It’s from a lecture by Berkley physics professor Richard A. Muller about the ‘data’ that was claimed to support global warming:

It is notable that Muller is not a global warming skeptic, though he is skeptical of the hysteria surrounding it.

He wrote an excellent book on this and other issues called Physics for Futre Presidents

    There have been a lot of fish and animals dying in huge amounts lately, and I don’t think it’s a good thing. I also think at least some of it is anthropogenic in nature and that we do need to be more careful to take care of our environment. Not sure how much of it is “global warming” or “global cooling” or “climate change” and I’m sure some of it is natural as well, but that’s no excuse for us not to take care of our environment.

    Unfortunately, like with all things, politics will distort the issue and attempts will be made to wrongfully capitalize off of environmental protection in ways that do nothing to actually save the environment. Politics can make it more difficult to distinguish truth from self serving agendas.

    Interestingly, I heard a bit about some fish kills being connected to seismic activities. It was in a news clip, but it’s an interesting idea.

    It’s possible. I don’t think anyone really knows. I also suspect some of it has to do with the oil spill, the govt and BP seemed intent doing what they can to diminish knowledge of its true impact (and while the MSM made a huge deal out of it during the spill, they seemed to rather abruptly change their position once it was sealed).

    Our system is extremely corrupt, there is no way of telling what sort of scientific data was distorted or censored from the public and how much of the analytical opinions on the matter have been distorted and censored to ensure that no one finds out the true impact.

    Good find, Jack. Of course, IMHO, global warming was a foregone conclusion of those wanting to implement cap and trade, which would be the nail in the American economy’s coffin.

    If anything is more predictable than the weather, it’s man’s fallen nature and the proclivity to sin.

  5. […] Muller, Professor of Physics at Berkeley and author of the book Physics for Future Presidents. He has been critical of some of the data and methodology used to support theories of climate change …. I further agree with his view that the biggest threat to the environment comes not from activity […]
