Well, to add some grist to the mill here I looked at two temperature graphs today covering the last 1000 years. The anti- climate science graph showed that the MWP (medieval warming period) was warmer the the current warming period (CWP). The climate science fraternity showed the same data but guess what? Their graph showed the CWP as warmer.

The other chestnut is the one that shows temperature between 1975 and 1998 as declining in some graphs, and as flat in others. And depending on whose using what to bolster their argument, so the shape of the graph goes.

"First let it be said that even ‘back-of-the-envelope’ calculations (much more believable in many ways than large computer models) suggest that there will indeed be some degree of global warming because of increasing greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. So there is not much argument from scientists about the actual existence of the phenomenon. On the other hand there is very great scepticism - this despite contentions to the contrary by the IPCC and the institutions related to it - that the amount of the warming will be enough to worry about, or indeed enough to notice, bearing in mind the natural variability of both climate itself and the ecosystems on which it bears.

What worries most scientists who know a little about the subject is that virtually the entire experimental support for the theory of global warming is based on the rough co-incidence of the slight rise in Earth’s temperature over the last 100 years with the rise in concentration of atmospheric carbon dioxide during the same period. The coincidence needs to be viewed in light of the fact that the world’s temperature has always in the past gone up and down like a yo-yo on all sorts of time scales. Presumably it will continue to do so into the future."

Garth W. Paltridge was Director of the Institute of Antarctic and Southern Ocean Studies, and CEO of the Antarctic Co-operative Research Centre, from 1990 until his retirement in 2002. He is Emeritus Professor at the University of Tasmania. He was a chief research scientist with the CSIRO Division of Atmospheric Research.
