Chris Field is a climate "scientist" who, when his hypothesis is disproved, doubles down.
"We now have data showing that from 2000 to 2007, greenhouse gas emissions increased far more rapidly than we expected, primarily because developing countries, like China and India, saw a huge surge in electric power generation, almost all of it based on coal," Field said.
He said that trend was likely to continue if more countries turned to coal and other carbon-intensive fuels to meet their energy needs. If so, he said the impact of climate change would be "more serious and diverse" than the IPCC's most recent predictions.
So, greenhouse gas emissions have been spiking since 2000 and yet, the Earth has been getting cooler all of those years. If one were a scientist, one might pause to reconsider the whole CO2 causes global warming idea.
