Another scientist abandons CO2 theory

LOL! I love watching this happen. Rats leap from sinking ship! Details at 10! - Former Global Warming Alarmist Deals Blow to Greenhouse Gas Theory:

A former global warming alarmist and creator of the model that measures Australia's compliance with the Kyoto Protocol says that while global warming is real, there is no evidence that the main cause is carbon emissions. David Evans says that CO2 emissions play — at most — a minor role.

Evans writes in The Australian newspaper that if global warming was caused by CO2, scientists would have found hot spots about six miles up in the earth's atmosphere over the Tropics. Evans describes those hot spots as the signature of the greenhouse effect. He says scientists have been trying to locate them for years using thermometers attached to weather balloons.

But he says years of research "show no hot spot — whatsoever" adding that "an increased greenhouse effect is not the cause of global warming."
