Professor Timothy Francis Ball is one of the most prominent names amongst the people that are against the theory of occurrence of global warming. Initially Dr. Timothy used to completely disagree with the concept of current occurrence of global warming, but as the results got more accurate and more funds were allotted to research on the intensity of warming, the professor stated that he never questioned the occurrence of global warming, but only the reasons for such climatic changes, which he firmly believes are not human-induced (Ottawa Citizen). Later on, the professor changed his stance once more and argued that the climate is cooling down since the 40s’ as satellite imaging shows cooling in certain areas. (Ball)
.Dr. Timothy’s philosophies were hyped after he received several death threats on his e-mail account after he appeared in a documentary film which tried to convey that global warming is a hoax (Ingraham 280). but the e-mail threat is quite dubious as the professor never reported it to authorities and only claimed that he had received such threats. which gives rise to a speculation that this was possibly a strategy to increase the sales of the movie.
.Dr. Robert Carter, another prominent geologist, states that figures of IPCC show no increase in “human-induced” warming since the late 90s’ and rejects the warnings issued by the IPCC in the matter. The claim by the doctor is highly dubious as the results do indeed show a steady increase in the rising in carbon emissions, and hence the correlation amongst carbon emissions and warming could not be rejected.
