climate change

Think that climate change and global warming is just a load of bullocks? Well, naysayers, a challenge has been presented. A physicist in Texas is offering a $10,000 cash prize to anyone who can irrefutably prove their hypothesis that man made climate change isn't a real thing.

The physicist in question is Dr. Christopher Keating, the author of "Undeniable: Dialogues on Global Warming." He wants to hear from all those supposed bright minds out there that deny global warming and its effect on the world. The challenge officially states that one has to "prove, via the scientific method, that man-made global climate change is not occurring." However, challengers will have to be on top of their game. There is no pulling the wool of Keating's eyes, he is well versed in climate change research and has taught about it and other weather patterns as the United States Naval Academy and the United States Coast Guard Academy.

He is also willing to pay $1,000 out "to the first person to show there is any scientific evidence that refutes the conclusion of man made climate change."

This challenge has been out for some time, but Keating posted his first submission to the two challenges on his blog, Dialogues on Global Warming, this week. The submission was posted originally as a comment by an anonymous poster, but it intrigued Keating so much he gave it a full-page analysis and an in-depth explanation on why it didn't muster up as passable for either category of the competition. It must have been both honoring and horrifying to be the subject of such direct attention from an esteemed scholar.

While these submissions serve the purpose of showing that man made climate change is indeed happening, in the process of analyzing each submission, Keating is teaching readers how to analyze scientific data to discern what is true and what is not.
