Average temperatures have climbed 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit (0.8 degrees Celsius) around the world since 1880, much of this in recent decades, according to NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies.
Temperatures have increased, according to the data, by about 0.5 degrees Celsius over the last 100 years. CO2 has also increased during this same time period—from about 300 ppm to 370 ppm. Interestingly, the majority of these additions have occurred in the last 50 years, when temperature increases have been slowest. Most of these increases occurred in the first half of this time period. There have been many articles written about the “cooking of the books” when it comes to global warming/cooling or now, as it is called, global change. If one prediction didn’t come true, they moved the goal posts, so to speak.
Dr. Thaler, in his closing, calls Mr. Bazzo, a literate contributor to your weekly paper, to be a denier. It seems to me that the good doctor is part of a group of those deceiving us. He, Al Gore, and many others have probably made millions from this deceitful trash science. The Earth’s climate has been changing for thousands and thousands of years BEFORE mankind even appeared. We are just a grain of sand in that causation if any. These alarmists have been claiming Armageddon for years now. First, it was the ice age back in the 1960s and 1970s. Then, it was we are going to drown with the rise in the levels of the oceans. Cities will be flooded.
I don’t know what Dr. Thaler has his degree in, but it certainly seems it isn’t in one of the scientific disciplines.
