Parroting Al Gore, reporters now routinely claim that no recent studies takes issue with man-made global warming orthodoxy. Here’s CNN’s Michelle Mitchell: “Global warming is real, is getting worse and is due to man. There is no wiggle room.”
A comprehensive Hudson Institute study begs to differ. Here’s what they found:
“A new analysis of peer-reviewed literature reveals that more than 500 scientists havepublished 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. ‘This data and the list of scientists make a mockery of recent claims thata scientific consensus blames humans as the primary cause of global temperature increases since 1850,’ said Hudson Institute Senior Fellow Dennis Avery.”
