Views on climate change

Joe D'Aleo is a frequent contributor to the International Climate and Environmental Change Assessment Project blog, an organization of climate change skeptics who "believe that natural cycles such as those in the sun and oceans are also important contributors to the global changes in our climate and weather." [4] In an article, he writes that "the sun is behaving like it did in the last 1700s and early 1800s, leading many to believe we are likely to experience conditions more like the early 1800s (called the Dalton Minimum) in the next few decades. That was a time of cold and snow." [5]

He is also an author for the Fraser Institute, a Canadian think tank funded partially by ExxonMobil, which promotes free market environmentalism and alleges that the risks associated with global warming are heavily exaggerated. [6]
