Colorado State University Seminar to Feature Fred Singer, Global Warming Skeptic, on July 18

Fred Singer, emeritus professor at the University of Virginia who has been considered a “dean” of global warming skeptics, will speak about the disparity between climate models and observations at Colorado State University on Monday, July 18.

Singer will discuss what he calls chaotic uncertainties and how to overcome them at 7:30 p.m. at the Glover Building, Room 130, on the Fort Collins campus.

“The central issue is the cause of global warming: Is it natural or is it manmade? While the IPCC claims to be 90 to 99 percent sure that the warming of the late 20th century is anthropogenic, they have no solid evidence to back up this claim. To the contrary, their own data argue the opposite,” Singer said.

Glover is just east of the Lory Student Center and south of the Engineering Building. Recommended parking is on the south end of the Lory Student Center next to the Morgan Library.

Singer has been called a “dean” of global warming skeptics and has spoken about the topic all over the world. He has a long and illustrious career in physics, meteorology, and leadership in government service.
