|Another State Climatologist Refuses to Kowtow|
16 May 07 - Many people who saw Al Gore’s "An Inconvenient Truth" immediately became very concerned about global climate change and impending weather disasters.
Don't count state climatologist Dr. Charles Wax of Mississippi State University as one of them.
"First off, there isn't a consensus among scientists," Wax told the Columbus Rotary Club Tuesday. "Don't let anybody tell you there is."
Wax spent much of his presentation telling the audience how the global climate is cyclical. It's always gone through periods of warming and cooling. As for cries of impending doom, Wax says there's tons of data on both sides - and man's ever-changing weather monitoring capability further clouds the picture.
"I wouldn't want to be called a skeptic," Wax said. "I have been called non-reputable (by people who believe differently)."
The climate is changing, Wax admits - but it's always changing and always has.
"I don't know if it's going to rain Thursday or not. Certainly I don't know what the temperature is going to be in 2050," he said.
