Australian sceptics cool on climate studies

4 posts in this topic

Australia's most prominent political climate sceptics see no reason to change their minds

The Global Carbon Project has released forecasts that the planet could warm by between 4 degrees and 6 degrees by the end of the century and Nature Climate Change on Monday published a study finding that warming is consistent with 1990 scientific forecasts.

Queensland senator Barnaby Joyce said the whole debate about whether humans were causing the climate to change was ''indulgent and irrelevant. It is an indulgent and irrelevant debate because, even if climate change turns out to exist one day, we will have absolutely no impact on it whatsoever."

West Australian backbencher Dennis Jensen: ''The scientific papers saying it is as bad as we thought, or worse, are talking about concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere - and concentrations are indeed increasing - but global temperatures have not gone up in a decade,'' he said. ''It's the impact of the increased concentrations of CO2 that is in dispute and I agree with [uS professor] Richard Lindzen that it is more likely to be 0.4 degrees than 4 to 6 degrees … the doomsday prophesies do not stand up to reason.''

Gotta love this quote;

That already happened some considerable time ago. What planet are these people on ?

Br Cornelius

it means that the 0.4C is the likely temperature response to co2 (including feedbacks).

any past 0.4C rise cannot all be completely attributed to co2 given you don't know what the feedback (if any) response is, or even whether it is positive or negative.
