Dr Jay Lehr and Tom Harris post at www.americaoutloud.com: "The climate crusade, promoting a world-wide delusion for which there exists not a shred of physical evidence, is again using children. These children are being used as ‘human shields’ for the evil doers of our day. Today’s crusade is built on fear and brainwashing children, sending them to the front with protest signs."
Professor Larry Bell posts at "Newsmax": "A petition being submitted by hundreds of independent climate scientists and professionals from numerous countries to heads of the European Council, Commission and Parliament declares 'There is No Climate Emergency.'....The petition concludes by recommending the recognition of clear difference in policies addressing the Earth’s environment through good stewardship versus Earth’s climate, the latter of which "is largely caused by a complex combination of natural phenomena we cannot control."
Valentina Zharkova's article confirming the next Grand Solar Minimum titled, 'Oscillations of the baseline of solar magnetic field and solar irradiance on a millennial timescale' has been accepted for publishing in Nature. Her team predicts the upcoming Grand Solar Minimum, similar to Maunder Minimum, which starts in 2020 and will last until 2055. The GSM cycle will again arrive in 2370 – 2415. With the release of this paper, she clarifies her new findings on the Super Grand Minimum Cycle...Her team's calculations match up with the timelines of the Maunder Minimum (1645–1715), Wolf minimum (1300–1350), Oort minimum (1000–1050), Homer minimum (800–900 BC); also the Medieval Warm Period (900–1200), the Roman Warm Period (400–150 BC) and so on with great accuracy.
This is the story journalist Doron Levin wrote for Forbes magazine in America about the scientific research by Professor Nir Shaviv and Professor Henrik Svensmark, two members of the GWPF’s Academic Advisory Council. The Forbes editor, however, doesn’t seem to like the piece and has therefore removed it from its website. We post the censored story here for interested readers to make up their own minds about the research by Nir Shaviv and Henrik Svensmark.
What Professor Shaviv himself says about this:
Indian analyst, Sanjeev Sahblok writes in the 'Times of India" that the current level of carbon dioxide (CO2) in Earth's atmosphere is low by historical standards, and has no significant adverse effect on global temperatures. He says the UN IPCC is trying to "fix" a "problem" that doesn't exist.
This absolutely outstanding PDF, derived from a PowerPoint presentation by Australian geologist Dr Geoff Derrick is a compulsiory read for anyone who may still doubt that there is no foundation for the climate alarmism promoted by the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and the power-hungry politicians who still support this elaborate scam. Long, it takes some seconds to download, but is well worth the wait. For instance, it completely destroys the myths that the trace gas Carbon Dioxide (CO2) can or does cause significant warming, and the Mann "hockey stick", and goes on to show that Pacific Ocean atolls and other land aeas are not in danger from rising seas.
U.S. analyst Dr Ed Berry writes: "We have already won the science debate, but few people understand this. The alarmists have no scientific case. Now we must win the political debate....Our task is great. We must show the public why human CO2 does not change the climate. Our goal is to get climate change out of politics and back into science. The idea that we have a 'climate emergency' is a product of a crippled mind."
Bjorn Lomborg wites in "The Australian" newspeper: "Climate campaigners want to convince us that not only should we maintain these staggering costs, but that we should spend a fortune more on climate change, since our very survival is allegedly at stake. But they are mostly wrong, and we’re likely to end up wasting trillions during the coming decades. I will outline how we could spend less, do a better job addressing climate change, and help far more effectively with many of the world’s other ills."
Apologies to readers for not picking this up the time (2015), but this address to the Institute of Mechnical Engineers in London by the co-founder and former president of Greenpeace, Dr Patrick Moore is even more applicable today than it was at the time of its delivery.
A new paper by Dr Geoff Duffy, FRSNZ, Professor Emeritus - Chemical Engineering, University of Auckland, New Zealand, states: "It is widely claimed that the MAIN CAUSE of CLIMATE CHANGE is due to ‘GREENHOUSE GASES- RADIATION’. HERE IT IS SHOWN OTHERWISE!!"
U.S. commentator, H. Sterling Burnett posts at WattsUpWith That: "As respect for journalists and their trustworthiness declines, mainstream media outlets, both print and television, are losing readers, subscribers, and viewers. By any measure, journalists aren’t trusted. In public opinion polls, the only professions consistently falling below journalists on their trustworthiness or ethical standards are politicians and used-car salespeople. This doesn’t surprise me. For more than 20 years I’ve watched supposedly respected media outlets, with investigative journalists on staff, fail to accurately portray the debate surrounding claims human fossil fuel use is causing catastrophic climate change."
In the New Zealand Parliament, the Green Party has introduced a Bill known as the "Zero Carbon" Bill. It has passed its First Reading and been referred to the Environment Select Committee for public comment. Later this year, the Bill will have its Second Reading, at which stage the Opposition National Party is being urged to vote against it, thus putting the heat on Government Coalition partner, NZ First to decide whether the measure proceeds or goes no further. Our Climate Science Coalition chair, Hon Barry Brill has made a 5-part submission to the Select Committee urging it to recommend that the Bill is rejected:
The Irish Climate Science Forum offers a comprehensive 2019 overview of the observed science: "The latest research and observations indicate that while there is an anthropogenic Green‐House Gas (GHG) influence, it is considerably less than depicted by the IPCC. Much more is also now understood about solar and other natural influences, weather events and many physical observations. Objective analysis of the facts points to prudent mitigation action butdoes not indicate a looming climate crisis."
Also from towerofreason.blogspot.com (exellent site!) an American certified electromagnetic compliance engineer with more than 30 years practical experience in high power radio frequency and microwave applicationsapologies for this post being highly technical, but explains why his critique of the CO2 driven climate change theory is based on a practical understanding of the intersection between chemistry and electromagnetic theory.
Sorry not to have found this earlier but this post from Towerofreason.blogspot.com tells the full story about how the lie about 97% of scientists agree with man-made global warming was cooked up.
David Shelley, now retired, who was a long-serving member of staff of Geological Sciences at the University of Canterbury, and latterly Dean of Postgraduate Studies, writes in 'The Australian' newspaper: "Climate change is a defining issue of our time, especially for young people who are persuaded that we are doomed unless urgent action is taken on carbon emissions. Activists, with some success, are demanding climate emergencies be declared around the world, making those demands on the basis that temperatures are at record highs, glaciers and sea ice are melting at unprecedented rates, and sea levels rising dangerously. A cursory examination of the geological literature shows that the first two assertions are simply not true, and that rising sea levels are par for the course."
We've just picked up on this video which recounts the text of a letter from Canadian climate skeptic Dr Ross McKitrick in which he talks about what happens to people who openly challenge the current wave of propaganda alleging man-made climate change. Watch this video if you need help to stand up to the alarmists.(Thanks to Whaleoil Beef Hooked blog - link takes a few seconds to load).
Professor Judith Curry, former head of the climatology department at Georgia Institute of Technology, gives the example of claims linking recent wildfires in the US to climate change. These are counterproductive, she says, because they deflect attention from the real causes of the problem, particularly management policies for state- and federal-owned forests. According to Professor Curry, these have been far more vulnerable to fires than privately-owned lands. Similarly, hurricane activity is frequently linked to global warming. However, with little evidence of any worsening trend and with large natural variability, Professor Curry says there are no sound climate-change-based arguments for effective policy responses.
