Skeptics From Around the Globe


George Taylor Ph.D. -Former State of Oregon Climatologist- faculty member at Oregon State University's College of Oceanic and Atmospheric Sciences. Past president of the American Association of State Climatologists. A member of the American Meteorological Society

"I just don’t believe that greenhouse gases dominate the climate system. I’m skeptical that we can control the climate. I don’t think we can. Some people think we should try geoengineering approaches like injecting particles into the upper atmosphere and blocking the sunlight. I don’t know if that’s practical – I’m not an engineer.... There are plenty of good reasons to conserve more, drive less, reduce our dependence on foreign oil that have nothing to do with climate change.

People have the attitude that the current climate is the ideal one and that we should try to maintain it indefinitely. But you know, in reality it changes all the time."
