Climate Changes - Causes and Consequences Published with Support from OPEC Fund


The proceedings of an international conference on the theme: Climate Changes - Causes and Consequences have been published in Volume 9 of the academic journal Energy and Environment. Produced with the assistance of an OPEC Fund grant, the publication includes statements and discussion remarks made at the November 1997 meeting, which took place in Bonn, Germany.

Organized jointly by the European Academy for Environmental Affairs, the European Academy of Sciences and Arts and the Science and Environmental Policy Project (USA), the conference offered a platform for both protagonists and critics of the so-called "greenhouse effect an opportunity to present and discuss their opinions.

Critics of the "greenhouse hypothesis" included renowned atmospheric physicist, Professor Fred Singer, who questioned the fundamental validity of the climate change theory and put forward powerful arguments to illustrate his claim that the research on global warming is both unconvincing and incomplete. His assertions were supported by presentations from a number of other experts who, drawing on scientific evidence from the fields of geophysics, geology, astrophysics and spectroscopy, illustrated that, due to the sheer diversity of factors influencing the issue, climate change is by no means a clear-cut science.

Despite contributions from two members of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) who defended thc case for human influence on climate, ensuing discussions and counter-evidence revealed critical flaws in their statements, and the final roundtable debate showed the majority of delegates to be united in their conviction that greenhouse gases play a relatively minor role in the global warming phenomenon in comparison to the influence of other environmental factors.

The Misinterpreted Greenhouse Effect: Climate Changes - Causes and Consequences is published in Energy and Environment, Volume 9, Number 6, 1998, by Multi-Science Publishing Co. Ltd., Brentwood, Essex, United Kingdom.
