The Dictionary of the Climate Debate (DCD)

Curry, Judith

A hurricane expert who is the chair of the School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at the Georgia Institute of Technology, she became newsworthy during Climategate when she publicly chided her fellow climate scientists for lack of transparency and stonewalling tribalistic behaviour. They didn't like it.

She has a blog called Climate, etc. Click here to check it out.

Curry on resolving the antarctic sea ice paradox

A debate about the "Political" science of the climate change

1. "Are you aware the IPCC and the consensus has no explanation for the increase of ice in the Antarctic?" Curry said.

"Are you aware that they have no explanation for the fact the rate of sea level rise from 1920 to 1950 was as large, if not larger, as it currently is?"

"Are you aware that temperatures have been warming for more than 200 years, and, that in the 20th Century, 40 percent of the warming occurred before 1950 when carbon dioxide was not a factor in the warming?" Curry continued.
