Here’s an article from the Littleton (Colo.) Reporter-Herald about noted meteorologist Bill Gray, speaking to a small group of folks at a local breakfast on the topic of global warming. Don’t look for this to make the WaPo, although had he gone the other way, they’d do a pull-out section on it.
In any event, according to this article by Kate Martin, this professor, a noted expert who’s spent some four decades on the issue said “human-induced global warming is a fear perpetuated by the media and scientists who are trying to get federal grants.” This would seem to jibe with the chart we posted yesterday. Gray went on to say with certitude that, “I think we’re coming out of the little ice age, and warming is due to changes to ocean circulation patterns due to salinity variations,” he said. “I’m sure that’s it.”
Gray, reports Martin, “said Earth was warmer in some medieval periods than it is today. Current weather models are good at predicting weather as far as 10 days in advance, but predicting up to 100 years into the future is ‘a great act of faith, and I don’t believe any of it,’ he said.”
A great act of faith indeed. Somebody oughta tell the guy who wants fact-based debates that there are some inconvenient facts floating around out there in the atmosphere.
