Australia: Channel Nine’s Adam Shand gets a second opinion on Global Warming

[photopress:global_warming_consensus_air_quotes.jpg,full,pp_image]
So much for the … ehm … “consensus”

Australian columnist, Andrew Bolt, links to the just-screened Channel Nine Sunday show titled Questioning Science – with narration and interviews by Adam Shand – which challenges the pseudo-scientific content and cult-like character of Global Warming alarmists.

As well as giving Green Believers like Flim-Flam Flannery ample opportunity to expose their hostility to proper scientific debate, this is a beautifully produced and entertaining episode.

From the Sunday site …

there is a school of thought that our knowledge of climate systems is as yet insufficient to be so conclusive on the causes of global warming.

Today Sunday examines the political consensus building that has portrayed global warming as the most urgent crisis humankind has ever faced.

Skeptics point to the gaps in the knowledge base and the flaws in the measurement of vital climate and weather data upon which the consensus is based.

Social researchers also highlight the dangers of conducting science as a form of religion, divided into believers and deniers.

They warn that as governments prepare to make expensive policy decisions, such as carbon emissions trading schemes, this consensus may not reflect the best science.

I also recommend browsing through some of the astute and often hilarious commenters on Andrew Bolt’s blog.

Here are three YouTubes of the “Sunday” show …

  1. I watched the tree movies about Global Warming. People disagree. One expresses an opinion that the matter is complicated and it takes a university degree to understand these matters.
    I never heard mentioned in any discussion about these matters that there is only 0.3% carbon dioxide in the air; that such a small amount is not sufficient for full-fledged photosynthesis that feeds the plants of the Earth. To acquire more carbon dioxide from this meagre environment, the plants open pores at the bottom of their leaves. That way, they get more carbon dioxide, but they also lose water that evaporates through the pores. The outcome of this is that plants need more watering. Those that cannot get more watering, wilt. Hence, deserts spread. The best way to shrink deserts and make our Planet greener is to return to the atmosphere the carbon dioxide that disappeared in the catastrophe that killed the dinosaurs and the lush flora that fed them and buried them under a think layer of soil and stones. Now they are our oil and coal. If human activity is significant in changing the level of carbon dioxide in the air (and that I cannot tell with confidence), we have to make an effort to produce as much carbon dioxide as we can, by burning carbon (oil and coal), rather than curbing carbon dioxide production. Modern technology allows doing so without releasing into the atmosphere poisoning gases and suit. Improvements in this technology should be encouraged.
    Besides, carbon monoxide gas is poisonous only in close quarters. Carbon monoxide gas is not stable: the moment it comes out into fresh air, which contains about 23% oxygen, the monoxide turns into dioxide, thereby losing its toxicity.
    Let us make out Planet greener. Let us shrink deserts. Hence, let us produce as much carbon dioxide as we can. We may never reach the level of carbon dioxide plants enjoyed at the dinosaur times, but we should strive to that.

  2. Good morning Motty.

    Thanks for your interesting notes on the beneficial effects of Carbon Dioxide on plant growth and how plants react to CO2 in the atmosphere.

    I’m interested in learning more about this.
