Greenpeace Co-Founder Contradicts CO2 Climate Fears

Tells U.S. Senate: ‘We had both higher temps and an ice age at a time when CO2 emissions were 10 times higher than they are today’.

“A co-founder of Greenpeace told a Senate panel on Tuesday that there is no scientific evidence to back claims that humans are the “dominant cause” of climate change,” reports the Washington Times.

“Patrick Moore, a Canadian ecologist who was a member of Greenpeace from 1971-86, told members of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee “there is no scientific proof that human emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) are the dominant cause of the minor warming of the Earth’s atmosphere over the past 100 years.”

We are living in an unusually cold period

“Today, we live in an unusually cold period in the history of life on earth and there is no reason to believe that a warmer climate would be anything but beneficial for humans and the majority of other species,” said Moore.

“The fact that we had both higher temperatures and an ice age at a time when CO2 emissions were 10 times higher than they are today fundamentally contradicts the certainty that human-caused CO2 emissions are the main cause of global warming,” Moore continued.

An Ice Age occurred when CO2 was 10 times higher than today

“When modern life evolved over 500 million years ago, CO2 was more than 10 times higher than today, yet life flourished at this time. Then an Ice Age occurred 450 million years ago when CO2 was 10 times higher than today.’

“Crumbling. The alarmists are in scamper mode, much like they were when they found out that freon and hairspray had nothing to do with the ozone ‘hole’,” says Burt.  “The bad news is, the Obsolete Media will again likely succeed in keeping the fraud out of the news while they search for another ‘crisis’.”

  1. Isn’t this why they changed the wording to ‘climate change’ and put the Gore monster on ice, as in ‘shaken not stirred’? Pay off the beast and pretend it doesn’t exist. It’s the American way… and the way of every empire about to collapse like a black hole in upon itself.
    Actually, given all the expected cosmic crap headed our way, this ice age seems but a cherry on top.

  2. Yes. Humans (and other beings) thrive when its warm and suffer when its cold. If CO2 would actually make it warm we should all be making as much CO2 as we could. Unfortunatly CO2 cannot stop the coming ice.

    • Bob, don’t forget that we (humans) have survived many Ice Ages before with “infinitely” less technology and real cold *everywhere*, much worse conditions than anything we have now.
      I believe we can face this challenge again, either a Little Ice Age or a Big one.
      Our greatest problems are our politicians, IMO, not the climate.

  3. “Of course” the Obsolete Media has no interest in reporting the truth. There are relatively few sources of the truth that pour out of the network news feeds.
    The politicians control the scientist through controlling their grants and livelihood.

    The politicians want a NEW TAX, politicians LOVE taxes. They will ignore the facts until the new CARBON Tax is universally implemented.
    In Canada, the new Liberal Party leader, Justin Trudeau, is keeping quiet about the new tax, but it was a plank in their platform last election.

  4. Sadly, even the co-founder of Greenpeace will find that unless he talks the global warming talk, he will be ignored by the big media.

    Now if he comes out and claims all the polar bears have drowned and it is all George Bush’s fault, he’ll have unlimited time on all the mainstream media networks–and get a White House visit too.

  5. Sadly, the disconnect between both temperatures and ice ages with regards to CO2 means less than nothing to the advocates of CAGW. Empirical facts and observations, to them, are totally irrelevant.

  6. As I had stated a while back, to challenge the AGW proponents, one must attack their use of the following two “words”:

    Climate Change: (the new hidden word for Global Warming with a big hedge)

    Carbon: (the element which as an emission is a black sooty pollutant which sounds much worse then invisible CO2)

    Joe Kernen, a reporter on CNBC provides a great example of how one does this while challenging Lord John Browne’s overuse of Carbon while pushing reductions of fossil fuels. See video:
