According to Dr. Syun-Ichi Akasofu, the founding director of the International Arctic Research Center of the University of Alaska Fairbanks, global warming data often quoted by the media and government officials should not be used to attribute global warming to man.

In an online exclusive for The New American magazine, Dr. Akasofu, one of the "1,000 Most Cited Scientists," is "concerned about the inevitable backlash against science and scientists, when the public eventually learns the correct information about climate change," and requests the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) make an appropriate statement to clear up the confusion before the next G8 meeting being held in May.

The data from the IPCC points to an increase of 0.6 degrees Celsius per 100 years since 1800 to present as being caused by man as a result of greenhouse gases. Dr. Akasofu claims this is misleading because the Earth is continuing to recover from the Little Ice Age and 0.5 degrees Celsius per 100 years can be attributed to natural warming, leaving a fraction of the warming trend to other causes.

Dr. Akasofu was the founding director of the International Arctic Research Center from its establishment in 1998 until January of 2007. He has been professor of geophysics since 1964 and has published more than 550 professional journal articles. His full paper on the Little Ice Age is available as a PDF download from a link in his article.
