In an Sept. 9, 2005, DISCOVER Magazine article, Gray is asked questions about his hurricane-prediction research at Colorado State University, about global warming and about how politics involved in global warming effectively dried up funding for his research.
Below is an example of the exchange between DISCOVER Magazine writer Kathy A. Svitil and Dr. Gray:
Svitil: You don’t believe global warming is causing climate change?
Gray: No. If it is, it is causing such a small part that it is negligible. I’m not disputing that there has been global warming. There was a lot of global warming in the 1930s and ’40s, and then there was a slight global cooling from the middle ’40s to the early ’70s. And there has been warming since the middle ’70s, especially in the last 10 years. But this is natural, due to ocean circulation changes and other factors. It is not human induced.
If you have any doubts about whether Al Gore’s brand of man-made global warming is real or just a means to a financial windfall for the former vice president and his backers, the “insider” view provided by this article should make things clear for you.
