Meet Reid A. Bryson, our latest expert in the myth of global warming.

Bryson is a giant in the field of meteorology in the United States and a respected pioneer in his field. Bryson was granted one of the first Meteorological degrees in the U.S., founded the Department of Meteorology at the University of Wisconsin, and has a coveted honor in the United Nations for a lifetime of protecting the environment.

As almost all reputable scientists, Dr. Bryson does not doubt that some slight warming is occurring. He thinks the earth’s temperate has risen about 1 degree in the last 150 years. What he does is present some of the compelling body of knowledge which strongly infers that slight global warming and global cooling are phenomena that occur naturally in long-term cycles.

Rabid global warming extremists talk about receding glaciers as if they had never receded before. Bryson reminds us that archeologists have discovered thriving civilizations under those receding glaciers, indicating that the climate was much warmer there before.

He also uses the example of Greenland, named appropriately by the Vikings for a reason, which was farmed during the Medieval warming period until the next cold period forced them back to Europe.

“Climate’s always been changing and it’s been changing rapidly at various times, and so something was making it change in the past,�? he told us in an interview this past winter. “Before there were enough people to make any difference at all, two million years ago, nobody was changing the climate, yet the climate was changing, okay?�?

“All this argument is the temperature going up or not, it’s absurd,�? Bryson continues. “Of course it’s going up. It has gone up since the early 1800s, before the Industrial Revolution, because we’re coming out of the Little Ice Age, not because we’re putting more carbon dioxide into the air.�?
