'Father of Scientific Climatology' Questions Global Warming

(Fox News) - The retired professor who started the meteorology department at the University of Wisconsin at Madison says there is no credible evidence that links mankind and carbon dioxide to global warming.

The Madison Capital Times says Reid Bryson is known as the "father of scientific climatology." Bryson says he takes a good amount of criticism for his bucking conventional wisdom, but counters: "There is very little truth to what is being said and an awful lot of religion... where you have to believe in (man-made) global warming or else you are nuts."

And as far as Al Gore's movie "An Inconvenient Truth," Bryson says he hasn't seen it: "Don't make me throw up. It is not science. It is not true."
