Testimony To Congress – US Professor

Professor Curry points out the fundamental flaw that we cannot predict future climate when we cannot predict natural climate. Natural climate could easily neutralise “global warming”.

STATEMENT TO THE SUBCOMMITTEE ON ENVIRONMENT COMMITTEE ON SCIENCE,
SPACE AND TECHNOLOGY OF THE UNITED STATES HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
Hearing on “Policy Relevant Climate Issues in Context”
25 April 2013

” …If all other things remain equal, it is clear that adding more carbon dioxide to the atmosphere will warm the planet. However the real difficulty is that nothing remains equal, and reliable prediction of the impact of carbon dioxide on the climate requires that we understand natural climate variability properly. Until we understand natural climate variability better, we cannot reliably infer sensitivity to greenhouse gas forcing or understand its role in influencing extreme weather events. Natural climate variability refers to forcing from the sun, volcanic eruptions and natural internal variability associated with chaotic interactions between the atmosphere and ocean…. “

Dr. Curry received a Ph.D. in atmospheric science from the University of Chicago in 1982. Prior to joining the faculty at Georgia Tech, she held faculty positions at the University of Colorado, Penn State University and Purdue University. Dr. Curry’s research interests span a variety of topics in climate; current interests include air/sea interactions, climate feedback processes associated with clouds and sea ice, and the climate dynamics of hurricanes. She is a prominent public spokesperson on issues associated with the integrity of climate science, and has recently launched the weblog Climate Etc. judithcurry.com. Dr. Curry currently serves on the NASA Advisory Council Earth Science Subcommittee and the DOE Biological and Environmental Research Advisory Committee, and has recently served on the National Academies Climate Research Committee and the Space Studies Board and the NOAA Climate Working Group.

Watch it here – Prof Curry starts 15 minutes in – questioning starts 32 minutes in.
Prof Curry is a reformed Alarmist.
There is also testimony from a tame Democrats scientist, following the party line, and from Bjørn Lomborg who pedals his usual commercial global warming is real but it costs to much to fix arguments.
