Global Warming Conference: More Scientific Dissent

Nicolas Loris /

Dr. Craig Idso, is the founder and chairman of the Center for Study of Carbon Dioxide and Global Change. He addresses concerns about global warming and marine life, including the death of the coral reefs and other underwater ecosystems. Neither increases in temperature nor increases in carbon or both of them together, have had any lasting ill effects on the calcifications and growth in marine organisms. The Center’s work on ocean acidification can be found here. His general advice for politicians: pay attention more to real world observations than theoretical hypotheses.

Cato scholar Pat Michaels gives the audience a great preview of his relatively new book, Climate of Extremes: Global Warming Science They Don’t Want You to Know. Michaels refutes the misstatements of Al Gore, the IPCC scientists, and other global warming alarmism through simple fact-checking. The book, a bit technical at times (as it should be) is one of the best pieces of literature out there refuting climate change extremism. You can get it here.
