Not by fire, but by ice
I first had a look at this site, tonight. I haven't read very far, yet.
The links to pages on the site have interesting titles
Sea levels are falling in
Tuvalu (Pacific Ocean)
Sea levels are falling in the
Maldives (Indian Ocean)
Sea levels are falling
in the Arctic Ocean
Glaciers are growing around the
world, including the U. S.
Global Warming on Mars
Solar, Not Human, Cause
Global Warming on Jupiter
By as much as 10 degrees F.
Scientists who think humans
do not cause global warming
Have a look. What do you all think?
I can find no reference on his site to establish his credentials, that's like saying that I am a rocket scientist.
It would be more convincing with qualifications and a list of academic publications from the author....?
I've read the review page, but... peer review would be much more impressive.
He's already discredited in my opinion by this statement:
Snow in Baghdad for first time in memory - 11 Jan 08
My experience of Iraq is limited but snow in January was not unheard of.
It snowed when I was in Iraq in January of 1990. I was in Muqdadyia, Diyala. My husband told me it snowed in Baghdad as well and as that was only 30 miles away it seems a reasonable assumption that what he said was true. Is that specific enough for you? I can't imagine why anyone would lie about it though, let alone a met director. The snow doesn't lie long except in the mountains as far as I remember so maybe he means snow which is still there after a few hours.
Maybe he's younger than 28 - he said living memory.
"Snow has fallen in Baghdad for the first time in about a century as a result of two air flows meeting," said a statement by the meteorology
from the AFP article
There's an article here that seems to back up the met director clicky.
Hmmm. Marymary, are you saying we should believe the BBC article, over what you said? That would be a very unusual position for you to take!
Not really. But I'm not going to argue a point that my husband made more than 20 years ago. I'm unwilling to phone him up to debate the point as
it's not as important to me as it appears to be to you.
There is, though, reference to a memory of snow in the 40s in the article and that's not 100 years ago.
It's not an important point to me, because a possible error based on a very recent news article doesn't mean that other information about sea levels or climate or volcanoes is suspect, since the others came from other sources.
scholar, do you believe everything you read on a web page?
try reading some of these instead (note that many of the sites returned are written by scientists researching the topic)
Wry grin - I've made the point about peer review above, but it seems to have been ignored...
If you have a drink with a cube or more of ice, how much does the drink grow when the ice cube melts ?
Not much ?
Just wondering if the same theory could be applied to the melting ice caps..................dirty great lumps of ice, but do they make that much difference to the sea level when they melt ?
I'm beginning to think scholar doesn't believe in ice.
I'm also beginning to believe that the only way he will be convinced that global warming exists is when his brain is fried like an egg in 130+ degree heat.
Therefore I will refrain from feeding the kitty or arguing with the mule anymore.
