Climate Change Isn't Man-Made? Prove It For $10,000
Naysayers, you're on. If you're convinced that climate change isn’t man-made, a physicist in Texas wants to hear from you. Bring your virtual chalk, polish up your math, hone your argument and prove your point. Your time won’t be misspent: If you can irrefutably prove your hypothesis, he’ll pay you $10,000.
Dr. Christopher Keating, author of "Undeniable: Dialogues on Global Warming," has offered the challenge to anyone who can "prove, via the scientific method, that man-made global climate change is not occurring." Keating, who is well versed in climate change research, has taught at the U.S. Naval Academy and the U.S. Coast Guard Academy.
He’ll also pay $1,000 "to the first person to show there is any scientific evidence that refutes the conclusion of man made climate change."
He posted the first submission to the two challenges this week on his blog, Dialogues on Global Warming. The competition entry, which was posted initially as a comment by an anonymous poster, received a full-page analysis by Keating — and an in-depth explanation (which must have been excruciating for the candidate) for why it didn’t pass muster for either category.
It isn’t hard to see that the submissions Keating receives serve more purpose than to prove his premise that man-made climate change is indeed true. In the process of analyzing each submission, he’s teaching his readers how to analyze scientific data, and hopefully, to be discerning of what’s true and what’s not (in other words: real science).
