Climate skeptics don’t ‘deny science’ - Opinion - The Boston Globe

Climate skeptics don’t ‘deny science’ - Opinion - The Boston Globe:

I've wondered when Warmists and Petrophobes tell me the earth is warming; as the average is a quirky stat with two tails and a dispersion. Much can get washed out in the mean.

Jacoby from the link above quoting when Scientist and skeptic of Warmism.
Nor does Giaever share the society’s view that carbon emissions threaten “significant disruptions in the Earth’s physical and ecological systems, social systems, security, and human health.’’ In fact, the very concept of a “global’’ temperature is one he questions:

“The claim (how can you measure the average temperature of the whole earth for a whole year?) is that the temperature has changed from ~288.0 to ~288.8 degrees Kelvin in about 150 years, which (if true) means to me . . . that the temperature has been amazingly stable, and both human health and happiness have definitely improved in this “warming’ period.’’
