Award-winning Astrophysicist Dr. Shaviv is in Germany
with many other skeptical scientists during the UN climate summit.
Shaviv is warning about the scientific fallacies presented by the UN
IPCC panel about global warming climate change. His full presentation at the conference is on November 10th.
Dr. Nir Shaviv on Cambridge Debate: 'I was quite shocked to
see how the audience was so one sided (though far less than the
ridiculous 97:3 ratio we hear about!) and unwilling to listen to
Dr. Shaviv's Key scientific points: 'Evidence for warming is not evidence for warming by humans.'
'Anyone who appeals to authority or to a majority [97% claims] to substantiate his or her claim is proving nothing.'
'The polar bear population is now probably at its highest in modern times!'
'There is no single piece of evidence that proves that a
given amount of CO2 increase should cause a large increase in
'Over geological time scales, there were huge variations in
the CO2 (a factor of 10) and they have no correlation whatsoever with
the temperature. 450 million years ago there was 10 times as much CO2 in
the atmosphere but more extensive glaciations.'
'The simple truth is that in the height of the middle ages it was probably just as warm as the latter half of the 20th century'
'Taking unnecessary precautionary steps when we know they are unnecessary is immoral. It is even committing statistical murder.'
'Let us use our limited resources to treat real problems.'
