Since to some the world is coming to an end, wouldn't it be wiser to enjoy the present as much as possible?

I enjoy being knowledgeable about the world I live in and helping to maintain this place that is home to every living species on it.

These guys aren’t destroying anyone’s belief, despite the title, however the information they present is interesting and certainly not politically correct.

The opening comment stating by Tim Harris mentioning Tim Ball as a "historical climatologist" tells me this entire video hosts non-credible speakers who are not experts in the field of climate science and who tout lies.

Also stating “There’s nothing bad about carbon dioxide ... the more the better”. Right there, zero credibility.

Tim Ball

Ball was a former professor of geography at the University of Winnipeg from 1988 to 1996. The University of Winnipeg never had an office of Climatology. His degree was in historical geography and not climatology.

Let's take a look at the credentials and personal agenda of the people in this video.

Tom Harris

According to Harris's archived profile at APCO Worldwide, “Specifically, he has worked with oil and gas, coal, nuclear, environmental and aerospace clients for whom he has conducted effective media and public relations campaigns.” His profile also highlights how he has “worked with private companies and trade associations to successfully position these entities and their interests with media and before various government committees and regulatory bodies.”

Richard A. Keen

According to Keen, he has experience as a meteorologist in the army and has “done some climate modeling when I was younger and less wise.” He does not mention receiving any training as a climatologist.

Stanley B. Goldenberg Stanley B. Goldenberg is a Meteorologist.

Jay H. Lehr

Jay Lehr, who has called the EPA “Fraudulent” in its estimates of how pollution poses hazards to human health, was himself convicted and sentenced to six months in prison for defrauding the EPA.

Your going to have to do better if you are looking to try and cast doubt on the current global warming of earth being caused by humans.

Non-experts such as the ones in the video are typically meteorologists who have never conducted climate science research thus have never published a peer reviewed paper, or they are economic geologists in the same boat. (See the data points within the red circle on the graph below). This is a key characteristic of climate deniers known as the appeal to "fake" experts.

The red circle is where the 4 guys in the video rank with respect to being a climate expert.




You have just posted a video of the top 4 "fake" experts who are funded by big oil.

Let's check out what the Heartland Institute is about.

The Heartland Institute

Not very credible sources to be posting in a science forum.

Are you going to engage in nothing but ad hominem attacks or address the claims made? If you have information that disputes the claims, please present it.

Show me what ad hominem I posted?

I posted plenty of credible links as to who the non-experts are in the video you posted, and that their agenda is paid for and supported by big oil and the Koch brothers.

If you want to learn the facts about human caused global warming then I suggest you start with this site vs. getting your misinformation from these paid PR big oil mouthpiece non-experts in the field of climate science.

Skeptical Science

You can browse through the top myths and find the myths touted by the non-experts in the video you posted.
