Global warming as myth

A Parliament of Things
Essays by Philip Stott on Nature and Society

A point I have tried to make for a long time, but Philip Stott, Emeritus Professor of Biogeography in the University of London, is more precise.
(W)ill we be able to produce predictable (the operative word) climate change, and a stable climate, by adjusting, at the margins, one human variable, namely carbon dioxide emissions, out of the millions of factors, both natural and human, that drive climate? The answer is: "One hundred per cent, no." This is the seminal point at which the complex science of climate diverges irreconcilably from the central beliefs of the 'global warming' myth. The idea that we can manage climate predictably by adjusting, minimally, our output of some politically-selected gases is both naive and dangerous.
Read the whole essay here. Please note the climate factors on the left side of the page. How many can humans control?

Note to Anna at NCFocus: I could not find any evidence that Professor Stott, a global warming skeptic, is on the ExxonMobile payroll. Perhaps the writers in Rolling Stone, missed branding this skeptic as on the take, or. . .
