Notes: Dr. Ralph Cicerone, President of the US Academy of Science, one of the most-respected scientific minds in the country, has been trying for 35 years to debunk the science of climate change, with no luck. His research focused on atmospheric chemistry; the radiative forcing of climate change due to trace gases; and the sources of atmospheric methane, nitrous oxide and methyl-halide.
He ended his lecture at the St. Louis Science Center stating:
"I continue to think is there anything wrong with this picture (of climate change science) because scientists become rich and famous not by agreeing with everyone else. They become recognized by doing something different by showing that everyone else is wrong and doing something new, so I think about this all the time.
For 35 years, I have not been able to crack this thing (find ways to prove it as wrong). A lot of people who are smarter than me are always looking for new explanations. However, the consensus has come down stronger than ever that what we are seeing is due to the human enhanced greenhouse effect."
If, in his 35 years as a scientist, Dr. Ralph Cicerone has found nothing wrong with the picture of the science of climate change, what makes you think you can easily dismiss it?
