Mike Thompson

"Chief Meteorologist Mike Thompson of Kansas City’s Fox TV Channel 4 is a former U.S. Navy meteorologist who holds the American Meteorological Society (AMS) Seal of Approval and is a certified Broadcast Meteorologist"

The list cites an entry on his blog, although his comments in the comments section are more revealing:

Arguments condensed:

  • "There have been a number of scientists who have lost grant money simply because they had a dissenting voice over global warming"
  • "The truth is that only 3.5% of the CO2 in the atmosphere comes from human sources"
  • "The warming is coincident with the rise in solar irradiance since the mid 1850s"
  • "More and more climate scientists are admitting that the sun has played a major...if not the only...role in the warming that we have experienced"
  • "If you look at charts of CO2 content over the past centuries, you will find there were times when the CO2 concentrations were at or above 7,000 ppm"


  • Claims that "today we're at 360 ppm" co2.
  • The list claims "Thompson dissented from the view of a man-made climate crisis in 2008", yet a 2006 blog entry makes it clear he didn't accept manmade global warming back then either:
  • The 2006 blog entry contains a link to, which (conicidentally?) contains the claim that only 3.5% of co2 emissions are human caused.
  • In the 2006 blog entry he says "The key to understanding what is true, and what is not…is to take time to learn as much about the subject as possible. I cannot claim to be an expert by any stretch of the imagination."
