Another dissenting IPPC signatory speaks out...

...Dr Willem de Lange is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Earth and Ocean Sciences at the University of Waikato, specialising in coastal oceanography. Dr de lange has been listed by the IPPC as a supporter of the theory of AGW. But in fact he thinks climate change is mostly natural...
...In 1996 the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) Second Assessment Report was released, and I was listed as one of approximately 3000 “scientists” who agreed that there was a discernable human influence on climate...however...
...the observed climate change is consistent with variations in albedo and associated ocean warming and cooling, suggesting that it is just a natural cycle. This pattern of behaviour is evident in palaeoclimate data for most of the last 10,000 years. None of this is simulated in climate models. Instead they (the IPPC) focus on the 20th Century increase in CO2, CH4 and a few other greenhouse gases. The increasing concentrations correlate well with global temperature. This is taken as proof that the greenhouse effect is driving temperature.
However, it is also correct that changing ocean temperatures affect the concentration of these gases in the atmosphere. At annual and 2-7 year time scales it is clear that the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere is strongly driven by the ocean. At longer time scales it is also clear that the concentration of greenhouse gases lags behind, and therefore is driven by, temperature. Once again the oceans are the likely control on atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations

...As the wheels fall off the IPPC construct of runaway global warming more and more scientists will join the tens of thousands of their peers in condemning social engineering as a pretext for saving the planet. Watch this space...

Funny how we never hear of these scientists eh. Yeah i hope the wheels come off this crap-wagon completely, it certainly couldn't come any sooner.

...it's happening right now. truth will always win out...eventually.
