4. Prosecuting in strict accordance with the Scientific Method.

by Eric Grimsrud It is time to move this debate forward. As the Prosecutor I will now attempt to do that in strict accordance with the Scientific Method, a portion of which Ed has previously summarized in his Post #2. To the Jury: In science, we have theories and we have observable facts. Our understanding …

2. The Scientific Method

by Dr. Ed Berry Introduction to the AGW problem Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) is the hypothesis that human emissions of CO2 due to burning fossil fuels are causing dangerous global warming. AGW proponents claim AGW is so dangerous that we must drastically reduce our fossil fuel CO2 emissions in order to stop the disastrous effects …

1. A Common Sense View of AGW

by Eric Grimsrud The essence of the Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) problem is really quite simple and can be viewed in this way.  The Earth contains two very different forms of carbon. We can call one of these “geological carbon” (GC).  GC includes “inert” substances such as the fossil fuels (coal, oil, and natural gas) and various inorganic substances such a …

Climate Clash Definitions

Here the Definitions agreed to by Dr. Ed and Dr. Eric: GHG means “greenhouse gases” including water vapor, CO2, methane, nitrous oxide and the halocarbons AGW (Anthropogenic Global Warming) is global warming caused by human emissions of CO2 and other GHGs . CAGW means “Catastrophic AGW” Climate Clash (as now defined) will focus on the …

Climate Clash Claims

Here are Dr. Eric’s claims. Dr. Ed disagrees with all of Dr. Eric’s claims. Therefore, these claims will be central in the Climate Clash debate. Before 1850, CO2 did not exceed Base CO2 during the last 12,000 years. CO2 did not exceed 300 ppm in the last 750,000 years. Human fossil fuel burning and deforestation, …

Segalstad: Correct Timing is Everything – Also for CO2 in the Air

by Tom V. Segalstad, CO2Science In a paper recently published in the international peer-reviewed journal Energy & Fuels, Dr. Robert H. Essenhigh (2009), Professor of Energy Conversion at The Ohio State University, addresses the residence time (RT) of anthropogenic CO2 in the air. He finds that the RT for bulk atmospheric CO2, the molecule 12CO2, …

Why our glaciers are melting

by Dr. Ed Berry This chart shows how glaciers have been melting at a constant rate since about 1820. They began melting long before human carbon dioxide emissions became significant starting in about 1950. This raises these questions:

Lindzen: Climate Science: Is it currently designed to answer questions?

by Prof. Richard S. Lindzen, Program in Atmospheres, Oceans and Climate. Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Abstract For a variety of inter-related cultural, organizational, and political reasons, progress in climate science and the actual solution of scientific problems in this field have moved at a much slower rate than would normally be possible. Not all these …
