Jay Lehr, Ph.D. Science Director at The Heartland Institute: We are confident that all of our readers have read or heard for a number of years that 97% of all scientists believe that mankind has played a role in changing the earth’s climate. While it should have been recognized long ago as an urban myth, one of those stories that hang around regardless of a lack of any supporting facts. Rarely a day goes that a global warming alarmists do not use it to promote their cause of enlarging government and reducing personal freedom through the promotion of fear about our future.
Tim Ball, environmental consultant and former professor of climatology at the University of Winnipeg:The big lie that humans are causing climate change spreads as it is promoted by those with a political agenda and their use of a familiar technique to ensnare high profile people. This practice is a fallacious form of argument called Argumentum Ad Verecundiam defined as "…an appeal to the testimony of an authority outside the authority’s special field of expertise." The latest well-known person exploited in this way is documentary producer Sir David Attenborough, who was taken in by the false story of anthropogenic global warming (AGW). It appears he let his socialist views over-ride any sense of science he might have.

The global mean temperature in March was still only 0.34 ° C above the long-term average from 1979 to 2010, based on satellite measurements the level of the year 2010. Wood combustion will not contribute to reducing CO2 in the coming decades, contrary to the well-known political assessment and the extraordinarily high subsidy. Wood has a comparably low energy density and initially generates significantly more CO2 per kW of heat than fossil fuels do. GO TO PAGE FIVE FOR ENGLISH TRANSLATION.
