Senator Inhofe's floor speech and related materials finally released.
Friday, December 8th, 2006
Senator James Inhofe (R-Okla.), the outgoing Chairman of Environment & Public Works Committee, announced "A Skeptic's Guide to Debunking Global Warming Alarmism. Hot & Cold Media Spin Cycle: A Challenge To Journalists who Cover Global Warming."
Note the word alarmism.
In it Inhofe states "the IPCC has a history of failing your one condition – that findings not be exaggerated – as I detailed for my Senate colleagues. To be direct, the IPCC is no longer an institution that can be credibly relied upon in setting public policy."
Get it while you can, I'm sure this will go out of print soon. It's an excellent collection of news articles, press releases, speeches, EPW findings, and segments taken from the IPCC reports.
"The effects of aerosols and their uncertainties, are such as to nullify completely the reliability of any climate models." - Dr. Vincent Gray, climate researcher and IPCC reviewer
And from the IPCC second assessment "No study to date has positively attributed all or part [of the climate change observed to date] to anthropogenic causes."
Of particular interest is Inhofe's letter to IPCC Chairman R. K. Pachauri.
A letter I had not yet read by Bob Carter, a geologist and founder of the Australian Environmental Foundation includes "the empirical data stressed by climate rationalists will ultimately prevail over the predictions of the unvalidated computer models. Perhaps then we will be able to attend to the real climate policy problem, which is to prepare response plans for extreme weather events, and for climate warmings as well as coolings, in the same way we prepare to cope with all other natural hazards."
From National Post in Canada "'Climate change is real' is a meaningless phrase used repeatedly by activists to convince the public thata climate catastrophe is looming and humanity is the cause. Neither of these fears is justified. Global climate changes occur all the time due to natural causes and the human impact still remains impossible to distinguish from this natural 'noise.'"

Consider this account closed. It's disgraceful this site has no function to delete an account. I cannot be part of an organization that seeks only to replace the religion of the god of the bible with the religion of "poor me" bleeding heart liberalism. Rational my ass! Not believing in a god is one thing. A rational view of the rest of the world is something else, which isn't found here.
