Physicist Wal Thornhill discusses whether consensus science is leading us toward – or away from – a better understanding of climate change.
Thornhill quotes Professor Fred Taylor of Oxford University:
“It is very disturbing that we do not understand the climate on [Venus} that is so much like the Earth. It is telling us that we really don’t understand the Earth. We have ended up with a lot of mysteries.“
“The weather and the lightning on the distant outer planets are the most violent in the solar system,” says Thornhill. “This strongly suggests that the belief that the earth’s weather system are chiefly driven by the sun’s radiant heat has missed another energy source. It is at the fundamental level that astrophysicists misinform everyone with their belief that electricity plays no role in space. So lightning experts regard earth as an electrically isolated system and then have to admit that they don’t understand what causes lightning.”
“History makes it clear that the climate does change,” Thornhill concludes. “The real questions in whether our activities today are a significant cause of global warming…. All the evidence suggests quite simply that global warming is not man-made.”
