I am a climate change sceptic. There. I've said it. I am a historian by training and I've always been puzzled by the assertions that global warming is man made or exists at all given the so-called Medieval Warm Period with which I am familiar and which shows a far greater warming trend than anything even alleged for the contemporary period. After all, this was for a period when there was no industrialisation or SUVs.
I should of course explain what I mean when I say I am a sceptic. Climatology is, or at least should be, a science. So if we are to accept that climate change is happening, that it has primarily man made causes, and that the measures being proposed have any hope of stabilising or reversing it, then we should be presented with some facts and we should be allowed to view those facts sceptically. Scepticism is the foundation of all scientific method. Which is why I am worried that the climate change activists or warmists seem to want us to accept a massive diversion of economic resources but seem hell bent on preventing open debate on the subject.
In this section of my blog I will explain why I believe this and, I hope, evoke further debate.
