Disprove Global Warming, Win $10,000, Says Physicist
Renowned physicist and author Christopher Keating is offering $10,000 of his own money to anyone who can prove that global warming is not real.
"I have heard global warming skeptics make all sorts of statements about how the science doesn't support claims of man-made climate change," Keating wrote on his blog this week. "I have found all of those statements to be empty and without any kind of supporting evidence. I have, in turn, stated that it is not possible for the skeptics to prove their claims. And, I'm willing to put my money where my mouth is."
According to Auto World News, "Keating will be the final judge of the entries. Participants have to submit their own proofs and then he will critique them, according to the post.
There is no entry fee to enter the contest, though you must be 18 years old or older to enter. Entries don't have to be original, they just need to be submitted first, according to Keating."
Keating said he will provide feedback on why certain entries fail to prove the point.
"After all, the skeptics all claim it is a simple matter, and it doesn't even have to be original," Keating wrote. "If it is so easy, just cut and paste the proof from somewhere. Provide the scientific evidence and prove your point and the $10,000 is yours!"
Global warming skeptics exist all over the world. One such person is Rush Limbaugh, the controversial radio show host.
"These climate scientists, try to tell you they do know. But if you can just try to get your mind around this one concept, how do we know that what it is when we happen to be alive is what is normal for all time? Because these deviations are only relevant if what is happening now is normal," said Limbaugh recently on his radio show. "Well, let's say, for example, that the warming they claim, let's just play a little hypothetical, let's say it is warming, even though it isn't, let's say it's warming and we're headed for the devastation that these people say is waiting for us a hundred years from now. Well, what if that's what's normal is? What if where we're going is what normal is? How do we know?"
Keating is not fooling around, either. If anyone can prove that global warming isn't real using solid scientific evidence, he is prepared to write a check.
He has received over 250 submissions, none of which have qualified for the money.
