Betreff: [ RadSafe ] Auer on Global Warming

August H. "Augie" Auer Jr (10 June 1940 – 10 June
2007) was distinguished scientist and
Professor of Atmospheric Science at the University of Wyoming for 22 years.
After retirement became the Chief Meteorologist for the Meteorological t
Service of New Zealand.

As a boy growing up in St. Louis, Missouri, Auer was reportedly fascinated
by weather.
He studied meteorology at Colorado State University before becoming a
Professor at the University of Wyoming.
A land use typing method to classify land as urban or rural is used by the
United States Environmental Protection Agency.

After retirement, Auer moved to New Zealand and became the Chief
Meteorologist for the Meteorological Service of New Zealand Limited from
1990 to 1998.
He also presented the weather forecast on TV News for several years, often
preferring to use colloquialisms instead of technical jargon.
Auer was frequently quoted in the New Zealand press regarding weather and
climate issues.

In a May 2007 interview with The Timaru Herald newspaper, Auer stated that a
combination of misinterpreted and misguided science, media hype, and
political spin had created the current global warming hysteria and it was
time to put a stop to it stating, "It is time to attack the myth of global

According to Auer: “ Water vapor is responsible for 95 per cent of the
greenhouse effect, an effect which is vital to keep the world warm.
if we didn't have the greenhouse effect the planet would be at minus 18
degrees Centigrade but because we do have the greenhouse effect it is plus
15 degrees Centigrade, all the time.
The other greenhouse gases: carbon dioxide, methane, nitrogen dioxide, and
various others including CFCs, contributed only five per cent of the effect,
carbon dioxide being by far the greatest contributor at 3.6 per cent.
However, carbon dioxide from man’s activities is only 3.2 per cent of that
3.6 per cent, so it is only 0.12 per cent of the greenhouse gases in total.
Human related methane, nitrogen dioxide, and CFC’s etc. make similarly
minuscule contributions to the effect: 0.06, 0.047, and 0.046 per cent,
It would be like trying to increase the temperature of bath tub full of
water using one drop from an eye dropper.”
