As we are repeatedly told, by the neutral scientist at RealClimate.org and their ilk, consensus is the end all be all. That is the reason given for dismissing the Ice Age predictions of the 1970’s. Because, as they argue, there was no consensus for global cooling. Well, it appears there may not be a consensus for global warming.
A new analysis of peer-reviewed literature reveals that more than 500 scientists have published evidence refuting at least one element of current man-made global warming scares. More than 300 of the scientists found evidence that 1) a natural moderate 1,500-year climate cycle has produced more than a dozen global warmings similar to ours since the last Ice Age and/or that 2) our Modern Warming is linked strongly to variations in the sun’s irradiance; 3) sea levels are failing to rise importantly; 4) that our storms and droughts are becoming fewer and milder with this warming as they did during previous global warmings; 5) that human deaths will be reduced with warming because cold kills twice as many people as heat; and 6) that corals, trees, birds, mammals, and butterflies are adapting well to the routine reality of changing climate.
This is not the first reporting of such dissent. Dreadnaught previously posted about the lack of consensus on anthropomorphic climate change. Expect the ad hominem attacks and snarky remarks to be hurled the way of these 500 unlucky scientists.
