Stance on Climate Change

July 1, 2007

When Associated Content requested a story to “ask local experts about local climate-change due to global-warming,” a Yahoo News contributor interviewed England by email:5No One Really Knows on Global Warming, Oklahoma Weather Forecaster Says.” Associated Content, July 1, 2007.

“The climate has always been changing and it will most likely always continue to change,” England claimed. “In the distant past, we have been much colder than we are now and we have been much warmer than we are now. And all of that happened many times without humans.

“Here in Oklahoma we’re a little warmer than we were 30 years ago. Recently we ended a two year drought and it has been replaced with significant, long duration rains. Is all of this a result of global warming? Maybe it is and maybe it isn’t. You see, no one really knows. If they say they do, I suggest that person is confused at best or has an agenda at the worst.

“… .As someone said recently, ‘It’s the Sun stupid!’ Recent research suggests that the activity of our Sun combined with cosmic radiation from far outside our galaxy interact with our atmosphere to produce effects never dreamed of a few years ago. Is anything or everything in this paragraph correct? No body really knows.”6No One Really Knows on Global Warming, Oklahoma Weather Forecaster Says.” Associated Content, July 1, 2007.
