Climate Wars: Science Against the Scientist – An Interview with Dr. Peter Ward – Episode 406

On this episode of Blunt Force Truth, Chuck and Mark are joined by Dr. Peter Ward to find out more about the realities of climate change. Dr. Peter Ward spent almost three decades with the United States Geological Survey and has come out of retirement to try to understand what really causes global warming.

They kick off the show by discussing the problems with climate scientists reporting the correlation and causation and how this has put the blame on greenhouse gasses. Dr. Ward explains how the use of CFC gases during the 70s and 80s played a significant role in weakening our atmosphere.

Their conversation continues as Dr. Ward explains why he does not except the belief that CO2 and other greenhouse gases are the cause of climate change. He also explains the significant impact that volcano eruptions have on climate change, which is usually ignored during climate change debates.

Chuck and Mark break down Dr. Ward’s explanation of why much of the scientific study of climate change is not looking at the causation. They also explain how many scientists have just accepted the same beliefs on climate change to gain acceptance within the scientific community and to protect their project funding.

They finish up by discussing the how the true crisis today is not the climate but the scientists. They discuss how difficult it is to gain support from scientists in the field and how Dr. Ward’s findings are ignored for reasons outside of his scientific findings.
