 Background

Geoffrey Duffy is a emeritus professor of chemical engineering at the University of Auckland.

He is also the owner and operator of Fibre Dynamics Ltd, a consulting and marketing company specializing in infrared drying and fluid mechanics problems.

Duffy has written numerous articles for Climate Realists, a website that promotes the views of New Zealand climate change skeptics.

Stance on Climate Change

“It is also interesting to note that NASA’s Aqua satellite system has shown that the earth has been cooling since 1998. This corresponds with measurements from the Argos sub-ocean probes that the ocean is cooling. This is in stark contrast with the proposals from many 'climate alarmists'…

“So what are the key players in 'Climate Change'? The major driver is the sun. Warming depends on the sun. Cooling is due to the lack of sun’s energy.” [2]

Key Quotes

“Even doubling our tripling the amount of carbon dioxide will virtually have little impact, as water vapor and water condensed on particles as clouds dominate the worldwide scene and always will.” [3]

“Climate and local weather is forever changing. Sure we must minimize pollution of our air and water systems with obnoxious chemical and particulates, and not treat them as 'sewers'. But even doubling or trebling the amount of carbon dioxide will virtually have little impact, as water vapour and water condensed on particles as clouds dominate the worldwide scene and always will.” [4]

“Climate has forever been changing and will continue to do so. The major driver is the sun and the radiation from it. The main atmospheric 'intermediary' between the sun and earth is water, and thus it dictates the behaviour of the earth's climate.” [5]

Key Deeds

March, 2008

Duffy is one of a list of “climate experts” who signed the Manhattan Declaration of Climate Change. The declaration was put forward by the International Climate Science Coalition (ICSC) at the Heartland Institute's 2008 International Conference on Climate Change.

He is also listed as a “registered endorser” of the ICSC's “Climate Scientists' Register” which describes its mission to have “the vast majority of the public come to regard human caused climate catastrophe concerns as unfounded.”

Fracking for natural gas

“We cannot solely rely on abundant gas to solve the climate change problem. The climate change problem requires a climate change solution. Abundant gas could be great for any number of things, but it is not going to solve the climate change problem.”

This statement was made by Haewon McJeon, the lead author on a new study published last week by Nature magazine, which concluded that...
