Patrick Moore: ‘no scientific proof’ climate change is manmade

One of the original founders of Greenpeace, who quit the organisation in disgust,?has?said that humans are not to blame for climate change:

There is no scientific proof of man-made global warming and a hotter earth would be ?beneficial for humans and the majority of other species?, according to a founding member of environmental campaign group Greenpeace.

The assertion was made by Canadian ecologist Patrick Moore, a member of Greenpeace from 1971 to 1986, to U.S senators on Tuesday.

He told The Senate Environment and Public Works Committee: ?There is no scientific proof that human emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) are the dominant cause of the minor warming of the Earth?s atmosphere over the past 100 years. If there were such a proof it would be written down for all to see. No actual proof, as it is understood in science, exists.?

Moore pointed out that there was an Ice Age 450million years ago when CO2 was 10 times higher.

He said: ?There is some correlation, but little evidence, to support a direct causal relationship between CO2 and global temperature through the millennia. The fact that we had both higher temperatures and an ice age at a time when CO2 emissions were 10 times higher than they are today fundamentally contradicts the certainty that human-caused CO2 emissions are the main cause of global warming.?

Even if the earth does warm up, Moore claims that it will be to the advantage of humans and other forms of life, as ?humans are a tropical species?.

Amen to that…who wants to live in snow and ice.

He said: ?It is extremely likely that a warmer temperature than today?s would be far better than a cooler one.?

Humans, he added, just aren?t capable of predicting global temperature changes.

Moore said that he left Greenpeace because it ?took a sharp turn to the political left?.

Dr Doug Parr, Chief Scientist at Greenpeace UK, told MailOnline: ‘On climate science, Greenpeace accepts the consensus view put forward by 97 per cent of climate scientists, every national and international scientific institute and every government in the world ? climate change is happening, it?s caused mainly by human activity, and it?s highly dangerous for the future well-being of people on this planet.’

Moore has made several other assertions over the years that have been at odds with Greenpeace’s views. He has advocated logging, claiming it actually causes reforestation, and attacked campaigners for fear-mongering over nuclear energy.

His latest comments came as two of the world?s leading scientific organisations warned that man-made global warming is worsening and will disrupt both the natural world and human society.

It was global cooling before it was global warming before it was climate change…and its all a scam.

Patrick Moore is clearly a man of considerable conviction, at least he is speaking the truth.
