Global Warming and Meat Production in Snow talk, trip reports, Japan avalanche & backcountry Posted November 21, 2008 It's part of geophysics the study of the atmosphere and its climate. You can look it up. Akasofu is quite renowned within the climate community, and his notes on climate change are taken into account by many climatologists and have inspired many students and professors, you can look this up too. To say that he is not an expert it's like if you say that a mathematician doesn't know crap about computer science. Originally Posted By: Go Native You can say all the times you want that there is no consensus on Global Warming but the fact is that within the climate science community there has been a consensus for many years, certainly before and after the political crackpots started getting in the mix. The actual magnitude of the effects of AGW are certainly in debate and will continue to be so for some time. And frankly I see no reason to be civil with fools, so get used to it. Anyway, so you can be satisfied these are CLIMATOLOGISTS who oppose the so-called global warming consensus : - Fred Singer (University of Virginia, and inventor (if I recall well) of the instruments for measuring ozone in orbital satellites.) - Hendrik (Henk) Tennekes (director of research at the Royal Dutch Meteorological Institute) - now retired - William M. "Bill" Gray (piooneer of the hurricane prediction science, Emeritus professor of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University.) - William Kininmonth (australian methereologist, headed Australia's National Climate Centre from 1986 to 1998) - George Kukla (retired professor of climatology at Columbia University and a researcher at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory) - Marcel Leroux (French climatologist, a former Professor of Climatology at Jean Moulin University in France, and director of the Laboratory of Climatology, Risk, and Environment) - Tim Patterson (paleoclimatologist and Professor of Geology at Carleton University in Canada) - John Christy (professor of atmospheric science and director of the Earth System Science Center at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, contributor to several IPCC reports) - William R. Cotton (Professor of Atmospheric Sciences at Colorado State University) - Richard Lindzen (Professor of Atmospheric Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and member of the National Academy of Sciences) It seems the only one who speaks out of ignorance here is you. Rather than having others call you fool, you are doing a great job at making one of yourself. I've no interest in keeping arguing with you, you insulted me, you despised me, and you talked to me as if I am a paranoid lunatic who doesn't know what he is talking about. I won't continue this argument anymore because you don't deserve my time. But whenever I consider that some people may find an article about global warming interesting I'll keep on posting with the permission of the SJ moderators, and always respecting others who don't share my views as best as I can.
