Parliaments Review the Evidence on Global Warming: A Note from Bob Carter

URL: http://www.jennifermarohasy.com/blog/archives/002228.html
Date: 17 August 2007

Arguments by Carter vs What the Science Says
"1934 - hottest year on record" 1934 was one of the hottest years in the US, not globally.
"Climate's changed before" Climate reacts to whatever forces it to change at the time; humans are now the dominant forcing.
"It's Urban Heat Island effect" Urban and rural regions show the same warming trend.
"Models are unreliable"

Models successfully reproduce temperatures since 1900 globally, by land, in the air and the ocean.

"Temp record is unreliable" The warming trend is the same in rural and urban areas, measured by thermometers and satellites.
