Climate Guy joins ICSC

Climate Guy (skeptic Dr. Denis G. Rancourt) has joined over 100 scientists in endorsing the Climate Scientists’ Register of the International Climate Science Coalition (ICSC).

These scientists endorse this ICSC's strong position:
“We, the undersigned, having assessed the relevant scientific evidence, do not find convincing support for the hypothesis that human emissions of carbon dioxide are causing, or will in the foreseeable future cause, dangerous global warming."
Climate guy explained his position in detail in his February 2007 article:

One basis of Climate Guy's position in this regard is that recent (last 20 or 100 or 1000 years) warming itself cannot be measurably shown to have occurred because of the inherent technical and statistical difficulties in evaluating a "global mean temperature".

Another basis is that any such warming that cannot be reliably demonstrated to occur is not dangerous by any reasonable standard compared to direct human environmental (habitat) and societal devastation (oppression, exploitation, occupation, war).
