On the RealClimate website, Eric Steig (one of the website authors) made this comment, concerning a column by George Will (in which George Will reviewed Michael Crichton's book about global warming, titled, "State of Fear"):
"I would further suggest that Will is fomenting fear himself -- the bizarre fear that scientists like ourselves are part of some vast conspiracy."
The "conspiracy" being referred to is presumably the IPCC's (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's) analyses of global warming. This topic is of interest to me since I'm an environmental engineer, have studied the IPCC's analyses of global warming, and have formed my own opinion of the IPCC's work. Specifically, my opinion is:
"The IPCC Third Assessment Report's (TAR's) projections for methane atmospheric concentrations, carbon dioxide emissions and atmospheric concentrations, and resultant temperature increases constitute the greatest fraud in the history of environmental science."
I would be happy to conduct a scientific debate on that statement with Dr. Steig, or any of the other authors at RealClimate, or with any member of the IPCC.
I will be posting more material supporting "my side" of the debate, as my (very limited) free time allows.
In the meantime, interested readers can view my partially partially completed website. Specifically, the page titled, "What will happen to us?" contains some of the results of my analysis of the IPCC's projections for methane atmospheric concentrations, CO2 emissions and atmospheric concentrations, and resultant temperature increases.
