Quiz #7 (With 1 Answer)

Warren Meyer, the host of Coyote Blog and Climate Skeptic, posted a terrific slide show presented at the annual meeting of the California Regional Council of Rural Counties in September. He addresses five questions:
  1. Is the world warming?

  2. Is that warming due to man’s CO2?

  3. Will future man-made warming be substantial?

  4. Will we see catastrophic effects from warming?

  5. Do CO2 abatement laws like AB32 [California's CO2 cap and trade mandate] make sense?
As Meyer shows, the answer in each case is "no." I fully agree, especially if the developing world remains exempt.

BTW, I renew recommending Roy Spencer's paper on the Pacific Decadal Oscillation, available here.
