Lee C. Gerhard

Classification: Global Warming Denier

Lee C. Gerhard
Oil and Gas Geologist
Research and BackgroundGerhard is a retired geologist from the University of Kansas. He has government and industry experience in petroleum exploration, research and exploration-program management, oil and gas regulation and reservoir geology. According to a search of 22,000 academic journals, Gerhard has published 13 research articles in peer-reviewed journals, mainly on the subject of resource geology in the oil and gas sector.
Gerhard and the NRSPGerhard is listed as an "Allied Expert" for a Canadian group called the "Natural Resource Stewardship Project," (NRSP) a lobby organization that refuses to disclose it's funding sources. The NRSP is led by executive director Tom Harris and Dr. Tim Ball. An Oct. 16, 2006 CanWest Global news article on who funds the NRSP, it states that "a confidentiality agreement doesn't allow him [Tom Harris] to say whether energy companies are funding his group."
DeSmog recently uncovered information that two of the three Directors on the board of the Natural Resources Stewardship Project are senior executives of the High Park Advocacy Group, a Toronto based lobby firm that specializes in “energy, environment and ethics.”

Dr. Gerhard states that global warming is apparent and has been for some time. Dr. Gerhard proves Global warming is tied to Solar cycles with stellar hard science.

As an earth historian, DR. Gerhard's credentials qualify him as an expert on the subject and his research is backed up by facts.
Unless you are looking for a political agenda in the CO2 debate - Solar heating and cooling is the true answer to climate changes over the eons of Earth time.
Using the CO2 model to point the finger at man as the cause of global warming is called prestidigitation.

I agree with you completely. I've seen Dr. Gerhard's presentation on global warming and it is very well done.

However, it is very difficult to convince the true believers, or Al Gorians as some call them, that man and his "polluting" carbon dioxide are not causing global warming and climate change. As others have said, environmentalism and the belief in anthropogeninc global warming in like a religion, and once a believer, always a believer.

If the CO2 cause is prestidgitation, they are very good at it.
