No Winner in Ultimate Global Warming Challenge
Junkscience.com announces that there is no winner in the Ultimate Global Warming Challenge. None of the five entries demonstrates to the satisfaction of JunkScience.com that either, let alone both, of the contest hypotheses can be rejected according to the rules of the contest. JunkScience.com is considering the possibility of extending the contest in hopes that someone can prove scientifically that manmade global warming is real and the disaster that it is purported to be. Stay tuned!

The Web site junkscience.com is offering $100,000 to the first person who can
prove that humans are responsible for harmful climate change. The Ultimate
Global Warming Challenge says — "If you think it's a no-brainer that
humans are causing catastrophic global warming, here's your opportunity to earn
an easy $100,000."
The Web site lists the specifications for the challenge and the contest rules. It's open until December 1, with the results announced next February. (Political Grapevine)
As soon-to-be-Dr. Al Gore continues to duck every person on the planet willing to debate him about his unproven anthropogenic global warming theories, one well-known skeptic has put his money where his mouth is.
On Monday evening, the website JunkScience.com, owned and managed by Steven Milloy, announced The Ultimate Global Warming Challenge. (News Busters)
"Here's the opportunity for global warming alarmists to flaunt all the
conclusive evidence that they say exists," said Steve Milloy, founder and
publisher of JunkScience.com, the sponsor of the Ultimate Global Warming
"Al Gore says the debate on global warming is 'over' and the UN global warming panel places at 90 percent the probability that humans are causing harmful climate change through greenhouse gas emissions," said Milloy.
"If such claims are true and it's such a no-brainer that manmade carbon dioxide emissions are wreaking havoc on the climate," Milloy observed, "Then here's a chance for any scientist in the alleged "consensus" on climate change to pick up an easy $100,000."
"There's no excuse for not entering," Milloy offered, "since the winner, if any, could always donate the prize money to his favorite charity."
Contestants will also get a free DemandDebate.com T-shirt that says, "I'm more worried about the intellectual climate."
"So even if contestants can't prove that humans are causing global warming, their $15 will not have been for nothing. They'll get a great looking T-shirt warning of the real climate threat," added Milloy. (Southwest Nebraska News)
