The room where Fred Singer spoke at at CSU was not set up so that Fred could present any data. Sounds very suspicious to me.
Fred Singer, President of the Science and Environmental Policy Project and Professor Emeritus of Environmental Science at the University of Virginia, spoke at CSU (Colorado State University) in Ft. Collins on July 18th. Unfortunately the room was not set up to allow Fred to present his visual aids, so Fred made his presentation without his many interesting charts.
And now today :
Climate change skeptics challenged
Though climate change skeptics Fred Singer and CSU emeritus professor William Gray dismiss their views as “bunk” and “hokum,” many atmospheric scientists at CSU agree that climate change is caused by humans, at least in part.
CSU atmospheric science professor Scott Denning said there is nearly unanimous agreement among scientists in his department that human-emitted carbon dioxide will warm the planet.
Singer, an emeritus professor at the University of Virginia who is known for his doubts about a connection between secondhand smoke and lung cancer, and Gray, who is famous for his research on hurricanes but has lately gained attention for his climate change contrarianism, spent nearly two hours at CSU on Monday evening attempting to convince an audience that climate change is harmless and helpful to humans. Worrying about climate change, Singer said, is a “psychosis.”
Gray downplayed peer review as necessary for scientific research and claimed that intellectuals and the “mainstream media” have been “brainwashed” into believing that climate change is human-caused and harmful.
But John Calderazzo, a CSU English professor who is the co-director of the Changing Climates lecture series at CSU, said understanding climate change is difficult for many people, but they need to approach the issue with the willingness to pay close attention to the details with an open mind.
