Another Prominent Scientist Dissents from Warming Fears at International Conference

“For how many years must the planet cool before we begin to understand that the planet is not warming?” - Geologist Dr. David Gee

8 Aug 08 – Today, geologist Dr. David Gee, chairman of the science committee of the recently concluded International Geological Congress, dismissed the notion that the “science is settled” on man-made climate fears by asking his fellow scientists “How sure can we be?” about carbon dioxide driving global temperatures. “You see the carbon dioxide curve going straight across that diagram from left to right, upwards,” Gee continued.

The prestigious scientific conference, dubbed the geologists' equivalent of the Olympic Games, was held in Oslo, Norway, from August 4-14.  [ See: ]

Gee presented a temperature and carbon dioxide chart to the conference to illustrate the lack of linkage between global temperature and carbon dioxide levels. [Note: An online video of a conference climate change panel is a must-see video for anyone desiring healthy scientific debate. See:  

“So my question is extremely simple, we know temperature goes up and down. We know there is tremendous amount of natural variations, but for how many years must the planet cool before we begin to understand -- we politicians and scientists-- that the planet is not warming? For how many years must cooling go on?" the scientist asked to applause from the audience. 

Gee was perhaps one of the most prominent and accomplished scientists attending the conference in Oslo. Gee, currently a professor at Dept. for Geosciences of Uppsala University in Sweden, was awarded the European Geosciences Union award for his scientific leadership of EUROPROBE, a multidisciplinary research project that brought hundreds of senior scientists, postdocs and doctoral students together to study tectonic structures within Europe.

EUROPROBE was a project of the International Lithosphere Program and the European Science Foundation. Gee has led geologic expeditions to such locales as Svalbard, Novaya Zemlya, Severnaya Zemlya, the Polar Urals and the Taimyr Peninsula and has authored numerous scientific papers. He also chairs a Swedish Research Council committee.
