Liberal Scientist Urges Renewed Scientific Debate Over Climate Change
Dr. Peter Ward says there appears to be a serious flaw in greenhouse-warming theory
There is no Plan(et) B for Earth, but those relying on the Paris Climate Accord to save the world are in for quite a disappointment.
Dr. Peter Ward of the US Geological Survey, retired, is a liberal scientist who does not support President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Paris Agreement because it is an effective forum for all countries to address climate change together. His new observations and data, however, show that the Paris Agreement may be focused on the wrong problem.
So what’s the flaw?
C02 does not absorb enough heat to warm the world. Manufactured and volcanic gasses, however, are observed to deplete the ozone layer, allowing more high-energy sunlight to reach Earth. Ozone depletion explains observations of climate change throughout Earth history much more directly and in much greater detail than greenhouse-warming theory.
Manufactured CFC gases, which became popular in the 1960s as spray-can propellants and refrigerants, caused depletion of the ozone layer resulting in substantial global warming. The UN Montreal Protocol, effective in 1989, mandated cutbacks in CFC production, stopping the increases in ozone depletion by 1995 and stopping the increases in temperature by 1998. The ozone layer has been very slow to recover, however, because there is still a large black-market in CFCs and because there have been recent, rapid increases in short-lived ozone depleting substances, such as dichloromethane, that are not regulated. Prompt action is needed.
‘As long as ozone remains depleted, from 1970 levels the ocean will continue to warm, ice will continue to melt, and the recent acceleration in sea-level rise since 1998 will continue.”
IN AN INTERVIEW / ARTICLE, DR WARD CAN DISCUSS:
–The Flaw in Climate Theory and Why It Is So Serious
–The Role of Humans and Volcanoes in Ozone Depletion
–Ozone Depletion: The Sequel – Why It’s More Dangerous Today
–How Ozone Depletion Affects Skin and Eye Health
–How to Protect Yourself This Summer
ABOUT DR. PETER L WARD:
Dr. Ward worked 27 years with the United States Geological Survey as research geophysicist, branch chief, and program manager. He helped develop and manage a major national research program, chaired a committee at the White House, testified before Congress, worked on a committee for Vice President Gore, published more than 50 scientific papers, and won two national awards for explaining science to the general public. He retired in 1998, working intensely for the past decade trying to resolve several enigmatic observations related to climate change.
Ward’s analysis and theory are explained in detail on his website and in his new book,
“What Really Causes Global Warming? Greenhouse Gases or Ozone Depletion?”
