Geologist Dr. Robert Giegengack, chaired the Department of Earth and Environmental Science at the University of Pennsylvania: "I voted for Gore in 2000, yeah.
I think that if he ran again, depending on who he ran against, I might vote for him. He's a smart man." But after viewing Gore's film, Giegengack had this reaction.

Climate Hustle's Marc Morano: "But after viewing Gore's film, Giegengack had this reaction." Giegengack: "And I was appalled. (Dr. Robert Giegengack, chaired the Department of Earth and Environmental Science at the University of Pennsylvania.) Giegengack: "No, no I'm not. CO2 is not the villain that it has been portrayed. I'm impressed by the fact that the present climate, from the perspective of a geologist, is very close to the coldest it's ever been…the concentration CO2 in the atmosphere today is the close to the lowest it has ever been.

Giegengack noted "for most of Earth's history, the globe has been warmer than it has been for the last 200 years. It has rarely been cooler. As temperature rises, CO2 rises, and vice versa," Giegengack explained. "It's hard for us to say that CO2 drives temperature. It's easier to say temperature drives CO2," he added.

Giegengack does not even consider global warming among the top ten environmental problems. "In terms of [global warming's] capacity to cause the human species harm, I don't think it makes it into the top 10," Giegengack said in an interview in the May/June 2007 issue of the Pennsylvania Gazette.

"[Today, humans] are putting 6.5 billion tons of fossil-fuel carbon into the atmosphere, and only 3.5 billion is staying there, so 3 billion tons is going somewhere else. In the past, when the Earth's climate rose, CO2 came out of the ocean, the soils, and the permafrost. Today as temperatures rise, excess CO2 is instead going into those and other reservoirs. This reversed flux is very important. Because of this, if we reduced the rate at which we put carbon into the atmosphere, it won't reduce the concentration in the atmosphere; CO2 is just going to come back out of these reservoirs ... If we were to stop manufacturing CO2 tomorrow, we wouldn't see the effects of that for generations," Giegengack said.

Ivy League geologist Dr. Robert Giegengack of the University of Pennsylvania noted for most of Earths history, the globe has been warmer than it has been for the last 200 years.
It has rarely been cooler, Giegengack said according to a February 2007 article in Philadelphia Magazine. The article continued, [Giegengack] says carbon dioxide doesnt control global temperature, and certainly not in a direct linear way.

Excerpt: Ivy League geologist Dr. Robert Giegengack is a professor of earth and environmental science at the University of Pennsylvania.
Giegengack noted that the history the last one billion years on the planet reveals "only about 5% of that time has been characterized by conditions on Earth that were so cold that the poles could support masses of permanent ice. Giegengack also noted "for most of Earth's history, the globe has been warmer than it has been for the last 200 years. It has rarely been cooler. http://www.phillymag.com/articles/science_al_gore_is_a_greenhouse_gasbag & http://icecap.us/index.php/go/political-climate/al_gore_is_a_greenhouse_gasbag/
