Climate Change: A Catastrophist’s Perspective (Part 1)

Since the release of Al Gore’s disquieting documentary An Inconvenient Truth, the extent of humanity’s influence on the earth’s climate has become one of the most pressing topics in the public discourse. Hotly contested from the start, it is also one of the most polarizing. Arguments for and against the theory of anthropogenic (human-caused) global warming often divide along ideological or partisan political lines. Not since the days of Copernicus has such zealous rhetoric colored the discussion around a scientific theory.
Amid all of this politicized and impassioned debate, where does the actual science stand? The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), a U.N.-appointed group of international scientists, has issued a consensus agreement stating that anthropogenic global warming is significant and poses a grave and growing threat to the biosphere. However, other researchers adamantly disagree with this conclusion and have published data that call into question some key global warming claims. Controversies of political and financial agendas, flawed research, and cover-up scandals have recently arisen on both sides surrounding this beleaguered theory, further complicating an objective appraisal of the facts.
“Renegade scholar” Randall Carlson brings a unique perspective to this dichotomized debate. Carlson’s interest in climate change arose out of decades of investigation into catastrophism, the idea that the Earth has been dramatically altered in the past by sudden, cyclical cataclysmic events. His extensive research depicts an extremely volatile climatological history of our planet, long before human interference through industrialization. This view, based on peer-reviewed data and documented sources, offers a challenging counterpoint to the prevailing beliefs about global climate change.
I recently sat down with Randall Carlson for a video interview, presented here on Reality Sandwich in three parts. Following our discussion, Randall led me through a detailed presentation of some of the data he has compiled to support his claims.
