Another View on Global Warming by the Marshal Institute
The influence of the sun on global climate – new studies indicate that changes in the Sun’s magnetic field may be responsible for shorter-term changes in climate, including for much of the 20th century.
Whether global warming over the past century is unique to the past 1000 years or longer – the [UN] IPCC Third Assessment Report conclusion that the warming of the 20 th century is unique to at least the past 1000 years was based on a study (by Mann, et al.) that has been shown to be incorrect by three studies recently published in peer-reviewed literature. These studies show that many parts of the world have experienced warmer temperatures at some time during the last 1000 years than they did during the later part on the 20 th century.
The full report can be found at the George C. Marshal website. The George C. Marshall Institute, a non-profit research group founded in 1984, is dedicated to fostering and preserving the integrity of science in the policy process. The Institute conducts technical assessments of scientific developments with a major impact on public policy and communicates the results of its analyses to the press, Congress and the public.
