Last Man on the Moon: Global Warming not Caused by People

Biographical Data for: Astronaut Harrison H. Schmitt, PH.D.

SANTA FE, N.M. – Former astronaut Harrison Schmitt, who walked on the moon and once served New Mexico in the U.S. Senate, doesn’t believe that humans are causing global warming.

Schmitt said “historical documents indicate average temperatures have risen by 1 degree per century since around 1400 A.D.”

Schmitt also said “geological evidence indicates changes in sea level have been going on for thousands of years.” He said smaller changes are related to changes in the elevation of land masses — for example, the Great Lakes are rising because the earth’s crust is rebounding from being depressed by glaciers.

“They’ve seen too many of their colleagues lose grant funding when they haven’t gone along with the so-called political consensus that we’re in a human-caused global warming,” Schmitt said.

“I don’t think the human effect is significant compared to the natural effect,” said Schmitt, who is among 70 skeptics scheduled to speak next month at the International Conference on Climate Change in New York.

Schmitt contends that scientists “are being intimidated” if they disagree with the idea that burning fossil fuels has increased carbon dioxide levels, temperatures and sea levels.

Schmitt resigned fromThe Planetary Society, a nonprofit dedicated to space exploration, after the group blamed global warming on human activity. In his resignation letter, the 74-year-old geologist argued that the “global warming scare is being used as a political tool to increase government control over American lives, incomes and decision making.”

    Temperatures are climbing faster than 1 degree per century, that fact is very clear.

    I do not think this is just about a global warming; this is about the complete climate changes. The weather changes are very fast, it becoming to be unpredictable and dangerous. I do think the government should support sustainable development based on clean technologies. This should be the way to mitigate recent and future climate changes.

    @Jay Banks: Thank you for your comments. The global warming myth is all about weather patterns affected by Air Stream, El Nino, and La Nina to name a few.

    @Jay Banks: Thanks for your comments. “I do think the government should support sustainable development based on clean technologies. This should be the way to mitigate recent and future climate changes.” Are you talking about controlling the weather through sustainable clean technologies? How about clean energy technologies, but even with biofuels and ethanol, research is showing there is not enough water in certain parts of the world to make this sustainable.
