We finally hear Moore

I am skeptical humans are the main cause of climate change and that it will be catastrophic in the near future. There is no scientific proof of this hypothesis, yet we are told “the debate is over” and “the science is settled.”

My skepticism begins with the believers’ certainty they can predict the global climate with a computer model. The entire basis for the doomsday climate change scenario is the hypothesis increased atmospheric carbon dioxide due to fossil fuel emissions will heat the Earth to unlivable temperatures.

In fact, the Earth has been warming very gradually for 300 years, since the Little Ice Age ended, long before heavy use of fossil fuels. Prior to the Little Ice Age, during the Medieval Warm Period, Vikings colonized Greenland and Newfoundland, when it was warmer there than today. And during Roman times, it was warmer, long before fossil fuels revolutionized civilization.

The idea it would be catastrophic if carbon dioxide were to increase and average global temperature were to rise a few degrees is preposterous.

— Patrick Moore, Why I am a Climate Change Skeptic

You should read it all, it’s very good.

By the way, Dr. Moore cofounded Greenpeace. That alone should make his environmentalism credentials impeccable. But the man hasn’t stood still. Remember, most progressives admire virtue only if it’s on their side. So Dr. Moore is an apostate in some quarters, despite the fact that he has stood by his principles.

Yep, I’m going to say it.

I told you so.
