Research expert, physicist Syun-Ichi Akasofu predicts temperatures in 2100 will rise only 0.5C plus/minus 0.2C higher than today. The U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has ventured a guess at 4.0C plus or minus 2.0C – a huge difference. This is just a prediction, and a prediction made for the year 2100, so none of us know for certain that temperatures will rise or fall, but scientists can make these predictions. We must consider them, but if you have faith in the U.N.’s science, I urge you to do more research, and as you research, think about who has the motive to convince us the earth’s warming is such that it is dangerous to human life.
Akasofu is an acknowledged climate change sceptic – although he prefers the term critic – and his prediction is based on an attempt to separate out the effects of naturally-driven warming from man-made greenhouse warming. Akasofu states that the warming trend recorded during the nineteenth and twentieth century may be a combination of a natural recovery from the so called Little Ice Age mixed in with greenhouse warming.
The natural recovery:
Akasofu’s paper, “On the recovery from the Little Ice Age,” has been published in Natural Science. During the Little Ice Age global temperatures are believed to have around 1C lower than today. The Little Ice Age is thought to have begun around 1200 and to have ended in the period between 1800 and 1850. Since then, global temperatures have been recovering at a linear rate of around 0.5C per century with the effects of multi-decadal oscillations superposed, according to Akasofu….
The IPCC is wrong (and I believe criminally wrong) on about every point. If you have faith in the U.N’s IPCC, please, please do some more research. You can start here, under the category Climate Change/Global Warming.
