O que é este blog?

Este blog trata basicamente de ideias, se possível inteligentes, para pessoas inteligentes. Ele também se ocupa de ideias aplicadas à política, em especial à política econômica. Ele constitui uma tentativa de manter um pensamento crítico e independente sobre livros, sobre questões culturais em geral, focando numa discussão bem informada sobre temas de relações internacionais e de política externa do Brasil.

Aquecimento global (antropico): a visao cetica... (800 papers)

A coleção de artigos (centenas) referenciada (parcialmente) abaixo, pretende se oferecer como um contrapeso ao "pensamento único" atualmente dominante quanto aos efeitos catastróficos do aquecimento global antrópico (ou seja, criado pelo homem). Não que ele não possa ser catastrófico, mas é que se formou uma coalizão de ecologistas, cientistas e profetas do apocalipse que nos anunciam, todo santo dia (com perdão dos crentes) que "o fim está próximo" (vocês sabem: aqueles malucos barbudos, de túnicas brancas, carregando um cartaz: "The End is Near", ao que os milenaristas e salvacionistas agregariam "Repent Yourself!").

Transcrevo aqui apenas a parte introdutória e o link para o conjunto.

850 Peer-Reviewed Papers Supporting Skepticism of "Man-Made" Global Warming (AGW) Alarm
Popular Technology Net, FRIDAY, JANUARY 14, 2011

The following papers support skepticism of AGW or the negative environmental or socio-economic effects of AGW. Addendums, comments, corrections, erratum, replies, responses and submitted papers are not included in the peer-reviewed paper count. These are included as references in defense of various papers. There are many more listings than just the 850 counted papers. This list will be updated and corrected as necessary.

AGW Alarm: (Defined) negative environmental or socio-economic effect of AGW, usually exaggerated as catastrophic.

Criticisms: All criticisms of this list have been refuted or a change made to correct the issue. Please see the notes following the list for defenses of common criticisms. I make every attempt to defend the list where possible, in many cases my comments correcting the misinformation stated about the list are deleted and I am blocked from replying. Please email me if you have any questions or need me to address something, populartechnology (at) gmail (dot) com.

Disclaimer: The inclusion of a paper in this list does not imply a specific personal position to any of the authors. The reason for this is a small minority of authors on the list would not wish to be labeled skeptical yet their paper(s) or results from their paper(s) support skeptic's arguments against AGW alarm.

Formatting: All papers are cited as: "Paper Name, Journal Name, Volume, Issue or Number, Pages, Date and Authors". All "addendums, comments, corrections, erratum, replies, responses and submitted papers" are preceded by a " - " and italicized. Ordering of the papers is alphabetical by title except for the Hockey Stick, Cosmic Rays and Solar sections which are chronological.

Peer-Reviewed: (Defined) of or being scientific or scholarly writing or research that has undergone evaluation by other experts in the field to judge if it merits publication.

Purpose: To provide a resource for peer-reviewed papers that support skepticism of AGW or the negative environmental or socio-economic effects of AGW and to prove that these papers exist contrary to widely held beliefs.
