Dr. Tim Ball and the truth about climate change

Last night Michael Coren had Dr. Tim Ball on his CTS TV show for the full hour giving his views on man-made climate change/global warming. Dr. Ball has the bona fides to talk about global warming. He has a B.A. from the University of Winnipeg, an M.A. from the University of Manitoba in 1970 in Geography, and a Ph.D. in geography from the University of London, England in 1983.

In his doctorial thesis, Dr. Ball analyzed historical weather records from Canada’s north. He taught geography at the University of Winnipeg from 1988 to 1996, and has since retired.

Here’s how Wikipedia describes Tim Ball:

Timothy Francis Ball is a Canadian environmental consultant and former professor of geography at the University of Winnipeg, where he specialized in the relation of climate to human settlement. Ball disagrees with the scientific consensus on climate change. He heads the Natural Resources Stewardship Project and is on the Scientific Advisory Board of Friends of Science, organizations that reject the likelihood of human-caused global warming.

Dr. Ball’s opinions seem as credulous as any—and more so than some—I’ve heard on the subject. And since the sceptics’ view is not so often heard these days, I’ve decided to showcase his appearance on the Michael Coren Show with the following YouTube videos.

This is the Michael Coren Show at its best. Watch it.

  1. Thanks for the links.

  2. I wish The Michael Coren Show was national but unfortunately it's only available in Ontario and Alberta. And via the CTS website and You Tube.

    Thank you for posting this interview with Dr. Bell.

    I've maintained that our Prime Minister should stand tall and ask for a debate about global warming and I've taken a bit of heat from those who say he's doing the right thing by keeping his cards close to his chest.

    I don't agree.

    We need desperately to have a full and open debate on this subject because the more we pussyfoot around it the deeper into it we seem to get.

    The Premier of Ontario just signed away any hope I might have harboured about eventually having a small inexpensive wind-generated turbine in my backyard supplying cheap energy for my home.

    Instead I'm going to end up paying through the nose for years to come because he wants to 'do the right thing' regarding the environment and global warming.

    I can forget about solar energy too.

    Our federal government is one of only four countries to actually sign the Copenhagen Accord but everyone says that signing it is basically meaningless yet Prentice continues to speak of 'climate change'. Not 'global warming' but 'climate change'.

    And deeper into it we sink.

    Dr.Ball is appalled by the complete lack of coverage of what he refers to as the 'biggest scandal in scientific history' and he's right.

    I'll bet though that if Harper were to ask for a full debate about global warming the MSM would soon notice.

    He doesn't have to deny anything. He just has to ask for a full debate.

  3. I would dearly love to see a debate between Dr. Ball and Dr. Fruitfly.

    1. Dr. Ball is no longer a professor; he is currently a spokesperson/lobbyist for the oil and gas industries!
