Peter Ferrara, Harvard grad and Director of Entitlement and Budget Policy for the Heartland Institute, was a speaker at the 7th International Climate Change Conference. He shared a summary of the findings in an article written in Forbes.
This conference was held in 2012. Other conferences have followed but the findings have held up.
One preface of note he shared was:
The conference featured serious natural science, contrary to the self-interested political science you hear from government financed global warming alarmists seeking to justify widely expanded regulatory and taxation powers for government bodies, or government body wannabees, such as the United Nations.Peter Ferrara – Sorry Global Warming Alarmists, The Earth Is Cooling
What you will see are calm, dispassionate presentations by serious, pedigreed scientists discussing and explaining reams of data.
Ferrara. graduate of Harvard law school spoke about the Economic Implications of High Cost Energy.
Ferrara summarized the conference in his Forbes article as demonstrating that we are in a cooling cycle, not warming.
In short, what the data shows are 25 to 30 year cycles of temperature change from warm to cold.
Right now we are in a cooling trend which should last for another couple of decades. A talk confirming this trend was given by Don Easterbrook – PhD Geology Prof Emeritus from Western Washington University – Are Forecasts of a 20 Year Cooling Trend Credible?
Ferrara wrote this about Easterbrooks presentation:
Watch that and you will see how scientists are supposed to talk: cool, rational, logical analysis of the data, and full explanation of it.Peter Ferrara – Sorry Global Warming Alarmists, The Earth Is Cooling
All I ever see from the global warming alarmists, by contrast, is political public relations, personal attacks, ad hominem arguments, and name calling, combined with admissions that they can’t defend their views in public debate.
Willie Soon’s presentation covered the Maunder Minimum, a period from 1645 to 1715, which saw only about 50 sunspots during one 30 year period within the cycle, compared to a typical 40,000 to 50,000 sunspots during such periods in modern times.
The Maunder Minimum coincided with the coldest part of the Little Ice Age, which the earth suffered from about 1350 to 1850. The Maunder Minimum saw sharply reduced agricultural output, and widespread human suffering, disease and premature death.
Soon covers the contradictions and misrepresentations in the IPCC report.
