Please do not copy this word for word. I would to encourage you to write your own letters.

Recently a statement from five of our UNL Climatology Professors appeared in both the Lincoln Journal Star and Omaha World Herald, advocating the need to act because man-made climate change is upon us! Faculty members are supposed to be scientists and are to always be skeptical. To say that the issue is settled is to say "I have no professorial ethics." Science is never settled. Even Einstein's theory has recently changed!

The scientific community is very divided on this issue, and it seems unfortunate that our professors have succumbed to the government propaganda. While no one will argue that climate change is real, it is not caused by man. Climate change is as old as time and is caused naturally. Man-caused climate change is the foundation of the EPA's draconian regulations that are causing so much havoc in this country and are also the foundation of Agenda 21.

in April of 2011, the University invited Michael Mann, a lead author for the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) to speak twice. Since the IPCC was largely discredited by the scientific community in the Climategate Scandal of 2009, we should ask the Regents why he was invited?! We should also ask the Regents if anyone on the opposite side of the issue such as Dr. Fred Singer, was invited to speak to give a balanced view of the argument? Are we teaching one-sided science at our university?! Since this press release appeared in both the Lincoln & Omaha papers, we should send letters & emails to ALL the Regents, as well as the editors of our newspapers!

For more resources and reports on the common sense, logical scientific evidence that disputes the manmade theory of global warming, see http://www.climatedep...­ Thousands of scientists have openly disagreed with Al Gore, the IPCC, and the "green agenda".

Here's a link to an article that Dr. Coffman wrote for Range Magazine this year that gives a thorough explanation as to why the theory of man-made caused global warming is wrong. http://www.rangemagaz...­

Michael Coffman, Ph.D. Born in 1943, Dr. Michael S. Coffman received his BS in Forestry and MS in Biology at Northern Arizona University at and his Ph.D. in Forest Science at the University of Idaho at Moscow in 1966,1967, and 1970 respectively. Since then he has become a respected scientist and ecologist who was involved in ecosystem research for over twenty years in both academia and industry. He taught courses and conducted research in forest ecology and forest community dynamics for ten years at Michigan Technological University--a leading forestry school in the Midwest. While there, he published a book on forest ecosystem classification in Upper Michigan and Northern Wisconsin, which has become the standard for classification in the region. He also assisted the U.S. Forest Service in developing an Ecological Land Classification System for each of the National Forests in Region-9.

Until 1992 Dr. Coffman was a manager for Champion International, a leading forest and paper products company in the United States. During his tenure with Champion, he became Chairman of the Forest Health Group within National Council for the Paper Industry for Air and Stream Improvement, a respected scientific research group for the Paper Industry. In this, and other related responsibilities, he oversaw a multimillion dollar research program in which he became intimately involved in such national and international issues as acid rain, global climate change, wetlands, cumulative effects and biological diversity. During this time he was a spokesperson for the Paper Industry for the Media on these issues.
Dr. Coffman is currently President of Environmental Perspectives, Inc. (EPI), and Executive Director of Sovereignty International. EPI focuses on providing professional guidance and training in defining environmental problems and solutions based on Judeo-Christian principles of stewardship as contrasted with pantheistically-based environmentalism. Sovereignty International helps many different organizations to bring a positive message of how national sovereignty, free market enterprise, private property rights, and traditional values are superior to the global treaties and agreements leading to global governance being proposed by the United Nations in September, 2000.

Dr. Coffman has written a definitive book that is highly recommended by several conservative members of Congress that exposes the pantheistic environmentalist phenomenon; Saviors of the Earth? The Politics and Religion of Environmentalism. His two most recent DVDs, Global Warming or Global Governance and Global Warming, Emerging Science have received accolades from around the world. He has spoken to audiences in over 150 cities in America, Canada and South Africa and has participated in United Nations meetings in Europe and Africa. In 2010 he published his newest book, Rescuing a Broken America; Why America is Deeply Divided and How We Can Heal it Constitutionally.

The following statement was prepared by climate scientists at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.

We, the undersigned, are all faculty in climate, or climate-related disciplines, at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Based on our informed scientific judgment, we most strongly support the policy statements on climate change of the American Meteorological Society and the American Geophysical Union, the two most prominent U.S. scientific societies whose members are studying the climate system. Climate change is real, and human activities have a profound effect on the way in which it is occurring. Over the coming decades it will get warmer in Nebraska, by 4-10°F. Changes in mean rainfall are less clear, as all models predict wetter to our east and drier to our west; the ‘no-change’ line cuts somewhere through Nebraska. Of most concern, snowpack in the central Rockies is forecast to decrease dramatically with strong implications for the Platte River (will Lake McConaughy become a ditch in mid-summer?). In addition to a trend towards more drought, we can expect this trend to be interspersed with more extreme flooding events due to enhanced climate variability. The time for debate is over. The time for action is here.

Global warming is a con job and a mechanism for redistribution of wealth. It positively reeks of communism!

I remember when scientists told us we were going to freeze:

HideConcern in the 1960s and 1970s


J. Murray Mitchell showed as early as 1963 a multidecadal cooling since about 1940.[2] At a conference on climate change held in Boulder, Colorado in 1965, evidence supporting Milankovitch cycles triggered speculation on how the calculated small changes in sunlight might somehow trigger ice ages. In 1966 Cesare Emiliani predicted that "a new glaciation will begin within a few thousand years." In his 1968 book The Population Bomb, Paul R. Ehrlich wrote "The greenhouse effect is being enhanced now by the greatly increased level of carbon dioxide... [this] is being countered by low-level clouds generated by contrails, dust, and other contaminants... At the moment we cannot predict what the overall climatic results will be of our using the atmosphere as a garbage dump."[4]

1970s awareness

The temperature record as seen in 1975; compare with the next figure.

Instrumental record of global average temperatures.
Concern peaked in the early 1970s, though "the possibility of anthropogenic warming dominated the peer-reviewed literature even then" [2] (a cooling period began in 1945, and two decades of a cooling trend suggested a trough had been reached after several decades of warming). This peaking concern is partially attributable to the fact much less was then known about world climate and causes of ice ages. However, climate scientists were aware that predictions based on this trend were not possible - because the trend was poorly studied and not understood (for example see reference[12]). Despite that, in the popular press the possibility of cooling was reported generally without the caveats present in the scientific reports, and "unusually severe winters in Asia and parts of North America in 1972 and 1973...pushed the issue into the public consciousness".[2]
