AUtiger98 24 Posted December 12, 2014 Share Posted December 12, 2014 HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — Alabama’s State Climatologist this week urged the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to readdress the physical science behind its Clean Power Plan, which assumes that carbon dioxide emissions are the driving force behind variations in the Earth’s climate.Dr. John Christy is a climate scientist at the University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) and has been Alabama’s State Climatologist since 2000. “I build data sets from scratch to answer questions about climate variability and to test assertions people make about climate change,” he said during testimony before the U.S. Senate. “That’s really what the scientific method is all about.” It is that commitment to starting “from scratch” without a predetermined outcome that has made him a particularly bothersome thorn in the EPA’s side in recent years. While Christy does not deny that the Earth’s climate is changing, he vehemently rejects the assumptions at the core of the EPA’s growing list of environmental regulations.
