Prominent skeptic in the world of human caused climate change - Anthony Watts to speak June 17
After watching weeks of Corona Virus Task Force briefings we have seen how predictions based on models can produce frightening numbers, depend on assumptions and unknown interactions, and require reliable data inputs. Even after multiple passes and updates, resulting predictions haven’t matched real world experience. Could similar modeling difficulties exist in the man-made global warming/climate change arena?
Our keynote speaker, Anthony Watts is a reality based climate skeptic. He is a senior fellow for environment and climate at The Heartland Institute. Watts has been in the weather business both in front of, and behind the camera as an on-air television meteorologist since 1978, and currently does daily radio forecasts. He has created weather graphics presentation systems for television, specialized weather instrumentation, as well as co-authored peer-reviewed papers on climate issues. He operates the most viewed website in the world on climate, the award-winning website www.wattsupwiththat.com .
Mr. Watts’ work on climate issues, specifically the problems with temperature measurements via his www.surfacestations.org website, has been cited worldwide in books, studies and government reports. When Watts started studying climate change, he discovered that U.S. temperature data sets (which are thought to be the most reliable in the world) can't be trusted in part because the weather recording stations have been badly compromised. Watts organized a corps of volunteers to visit, photograph, and rate NOAA weather recording stations around the country for adherence to siting guidelines. These surveys confirmed the unreliability of weather station data. Long time NCRWF associate member, Russ Steele worked as one of those volunteers and evaluated more than 25 surface stations. Mr. Watts will dedicate his remarks to Russ’s memory.
Mr. Watts’ views on climate are pragmatic, believing that while indeed climate has changed in the last 100 years, there is no crisis, and that many of the predictions and pronouncements have been greatly oversold to the public.
