Chylek, Petr

A researcher for Space and Remote Sensing Sciences at the Los Alamos National Laboratory. Before that, he was Professor of Physics and Atmospheric Science at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Canada. Chylek has published over 100 scientific papers in remote sensing, atmospheric radiation, climate change, cloud and aerosol physics, applied laser physics and ice core analysis. His work has been cited more than 3000 times.

In 2006, he served as Chairman of The Second International Conference on Global Warming and the Next Ice Age held at Los Alamos National Laboratory in Santa Fe.

2. In 2009 Chylek authored an email entitled "Open Letter to the Climate Research Community" and sent it to 100 of his Climate Research peers. In the email, he claimed that the climate science community has "substituted the search for truth with an attempt at proving one point of view." Click here to read it.

Abstract: "We provide an analysis of Greenland temperature records to compare the current (1995–2005) warming period with the previous (1920–1930) Greenland warming. We find that the current Greenland warming is not unprecedented in recent Greenland history. Temperature increases in the two warming periods are of a similar magnitude, however, the rate of warming in 1920–1930 was about 50% higher than that in 1995–2005."
