The Global Climate Facts Team – Who we are.
We are 3 friends who have known each other since Junior High School. We grew up in Miami – the epicenter for hurricane alley.
Call us geeks but we all had weather radios.
Politically, we all tend to lean left – some more than others.
I have always been fascinated with weather.
The main reason I became a Global Warming skeptic during the 90’s was I remember watching the episode of In Search Of … The Coming Ice Age & I was actually scared.
Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me! Once all the GW talk started I immediately was skeptical since the ice age never happened so why should I believe in Global Warming. It’s all cycle’s folks!
Skepticism is my nature. Some may call my cynical. No matter what the issue is, I have always found that I must research for myself and reach my own conclusion. How else can a mostly progressive person come up on the skeptic side of the Global Warming debate?
Another area of frustration is when I hear all debate is complete – the research is in. What exactly does this mean? Any scientist worth their weight never shuts the door on facts.
Then you have the people who are condescending, insult and demean those of different opinion. These people are close-minded and will be on the wrong side of nearly every issue.
If you want to know where I stand on an issue – look for the side doing the name calling, yelling that debate is done and refusing to listen to opposing perspectives. I will be on the other side.
Typically rational, intelligent people call me flat-earther, denier and a shill for the oil companies. Actually, I am none of those things. I am a Floridian who has lived in South Florida since 1973 and seen cold mornings at the school bus stop in the mid 1970’s and hurricane seasons of varying degrees and scorching summer days in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s.
Thanks to my friends on this site, I had a weather radio when I was in junior and high school. I study patterns in hurricane seasons and definitely see a cyclical pattern which seems to be tied to the warming and cooling trends.
Even before I got into music, I was into the weather. In my first term in college, I took Environment and Meteorology.
It’s safe to say that I’m still on the fence and not truly a skeptic – but then again I was the most concerned of the group. Even though the evidence is there to support the skeptic point of view, I still have a tough time getting past the media blitz behind the warming movement.
