Frank Britton

Chemist Frank Britton rejected man-made climate fears in 2007.

list cites a news article, but the article seems to be gone:

unable to find other references so far.

Arguments condensed
  • co2 concentration is small
  • Most co2 comes from ants and termites
  • co2 is not a "particularly effective" greenhouse gas
  • political conspiracy
  • scientific conspiracy
  • Humans have no measurable control over global temperatures

Notes

  • Think he's thinking of methane with the termites and ants argument.
  • The conspiracy arguments are that politicians and scientists know it's wrong but either for financial or ideological gain they push it nevertheless.

Quotes:

"Out of the wide spectrum of radiation received from the sun, CO2 only absorbs energy from
three very narrow levels"
