Delaware state climatologist skeptical on global warming
Opposes state's position in U.S. Supreme Court case


1 Feb 07 - Delaware's state climatologist has taken skeptical stands on global warming and climate change -- in one case directly contradicting the state's own policy.

David R. Legates, a Ph.D. climatologist and University of Delaware geography professor, co-wrote a "friend of the court" brief that opposed Delaware's position in a multi-state U.S. Supreme Court case.

Legates joined a group of scientists late last year in urging the court to reject the state claims, in a brief filed by the conservative Competitive Enterprise Institute.

"It is simply impossible to conclude that the net effect of greenhouse gases endangers human health and welfare," the brief said.

In early 2006, the National Policy Research Center, a conservative think tank, published a paper by Legates saying science "does not support claims of drastic increases in global temperatures over the 21st century, nor does it support claims of human influence on weather events and other secondary effects of climate change."
