PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Dom Giordano talked to Joe Bastardi, from Weatherbell Analytics, on Talk Radio 1210 WPHT to discuss the People's Climate March in New York City.
Meteorologist On People's Climate March
Bastardi said that people are not causing climate change and expects scientific data to eventually back that up.
"The debate on what is going on is over. It is over. Now we just have to see what happens when the Atlantic flips into its cold cycle and the cyclical nature of the sun, whether we return to the temperatures we were in the late seventies as measured by objective satellite readings."
He commented that the protestors at the climate march were more concerned with their political agenda than climate science.
"If you really paid attention to what happened, the mask is off, and I appreciate that those people that organized this came out and let us know who they were. If you look at the list of people, Communist Party USA, Socialists. Fine, if you want to have that debate, that debate should be done at the polling place and should be done in the halls of Congress or try to change laws. It shouldn't be prostituting the weather and climate for your own needs."
Bastardi stated there are technical disagreements that can be addressed among scientists, but really doesn't rise to any level of concern for the general public.
"This is ridiculous. This should be two weather geeks arguing over a chess game with a cup of tea or whatever you want to drink. The whole thing is blown out, it's one of the weirdest arguments I've ever been involved with, because in the end, there is nothing new under the sun, and nature, not man, rules the climate system."
