Scientists respond to Gore's 
warnings of climate catastrophe


12 June 06 - What do world climate experts think about the science of Al 
Gore’s movie?

"Gore's circumstantial arguments are so weak that they are pathetic,” says
Professor Bob Carter of the Marine Geophysical Laboratory at James Cook
University, in Australia. “It is simply incredible that they, and his film, are
commanding public attention." "The man is an embarrassment to US science 
and its many fine practitioners, a lot of whom know (but feel unable to state
publicly) that his propaganda crusade is mostly based on junk science."

“But surely Carter is merely part of what most people regard as a tiny cadre 
of "climate change skeptics" who disagree with the "vast majority of scientists"
Gore cites?

“No; Carter is one of hundreds of highly qualified non-governmental, non-
industry, non-lobby group climate experts who contest the hypothesis that 
human emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) are causing significant global climate
change. "Climate experts" is the operative term here.

Such experts as Carleton University paleoclimatologist Professor Tim Patterson,
who says, "There is very good correlation between Earth's temperature and
natural celestial phenomena such changes in the brightness of the Sun.”

Such experts as Dr. Boris Winterhalter, former marine researcher at the 
Geological Survey of Finland and professor in marine geology, University  
of Helsinki
, who takes apart Gore's dramatic display of Antarctic glaciers
collapsing into the sea.

Such experts as Dr. Wibjörn Karlén, emeritus professor, Dept. of Physical
Geography and Quaternary Geology, Stockholm University, Sweden, who 
says, "the 'mass balance' of Antarctica is positive - more snow is accumulating 
than melting off.” (This is what I've been saying all along. )

Such experts as Dr. Dick Morgan, former advisor to the World Meteorological
Organization and climatology researcher at University of Exeter, U.K, who points
out that, in addition to the cooling in the NW Atlantic, massive areas of cooling 
are found in the North and South Pacific Ocean; the whole of the Amazon Valley;
the north coast of South America and the Caribbean; the eastern Mediterranean,
Black Sea, Caucasus and Red Sea; New Zealand and even the Ganges Valley in
