Scientists challenge climate alarmism

Dr John R. Christy, State Climatologist, Alabama, USA: “I’ve often heard it said that there is a consensus of thousands of scientists on the global warming issue, and that humans are causing catastrophic change to the climate system. Well, I am one scientist, and there are many, that simply think that is not true.” 

Dr Charles Wax, former president, American Association of State Climatologists: “First off, there isn’t a consensus among scientists. Don’t let anybody tell you there is.” 

Stanley B. Goldenberg, Meteorologist, NOAA: “It is a blatant lie put forth in the media that makes it seem there is only a fringe of scientists who don’t buy into anthropogenic global warming.” 

William Kininmonth, former head of National Climate Centre, Australian Bureau of Meteorology: “Climate science is not settled. Four decades of observations highlight that computer models have exaggerated the influence of anthropogenic emissions of carbon dioxide. The Paris Agreement has been negotiated from faulty premises.” 

Dr David Evans, former consultant to Australian Greenhouse Office: “Yes, CO2 has an effect, but it’s about a fifth or tenth of what the IPCC says it is. CO2 is not driving the climate; it caused less than 20 per cent of the global warming in the last few decades”. 

Dr John T. Everett, UN IPCC lead author and reviewer: “I would much rather have the present warm climate, and even with the IPCC’s warming, than the next ice age that will likely last over 100,000 years and bring temperatures much colder than even today. The NOAA PaleoClimate Program shows us that when the dinosaurs roamed the earth, the earth was much warmer, the CO2 levels were two to four times higher, and coral reefs were much more expansive. The earth was so productive then that we are still using the oil, coal, and gas it generated.” 

Dr Richard Lindzen, Professor of Meteorology, MIT: “What we will be leaving our grandchildren is not a planet damaged by industrial progress, but a record of unfathomable silliness as well as a landscape degraded by rusting wind farms and decaying solar panel arrays.” 

Dr Ivar Giaever, Nobel Prize Winner for Physics: “I am a sceptic … global warming has become a new religion.” 

Dr Robert Laughlin, Nobel Prize Winner for Physics: “You can’t find much actual global warming in present-day weather observations. Climate change is a matter of geologic time, something that the Earth routinely does on its own without asking anyone’s permission or explaining itself.” 

Dr Kary Mullis, Nobel Prize-winning biochemist: “Those people [at the IPCC] don’t always tell you the truth. There’s nothing in their contract in fact that makes it to their advantage, always, to tell you the truth.” 

Dr Judith A. Curry, climatologist, former chair, School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, Georgia Institute of Technology: “There are a lot of natural forces in play here that determine the climate and thinking that we can really control the climate by dialling down the CO2 emissions is really misguided hubris.” 

Dr Madhav Khandekar, meteorologist, Expert Reviewer for UN IPCC 2007 Climate Change Report: “Finding global warming in Canada and elsewhere is like the proverbial ‘finding a needle in haystack’. I am sorry to say that there is no global warming anywhere in the world today [19 April 2018].” 

Dr Patrick J. Michaels, former president, American Association of State Climatologists: “It is nowhere near as warm as it’s supposed to be. The computer models are making systematic, dramatic errors over the entire tropics which is 40 per cent of the earth, and it’s where all our moisture comes from or almost all of it.” 

Dr Roy Spencer, climatologist, former NASA scientist: “This is the state of climate science today: if you support the alarmist narrative, you can exaggerate threats and connections with human activities, fake experiments, break government rules, intimidate scientific journal editors (and make them resign), and even violate the law. As long as you can say you are doing it for the children.” 

Piers Corbyn MSc, astrophysicist, Managing Director, WeatherAction: “Global warming/climate change policy causes massive suffering from Africa to France where ‘yellow vests’ have ripped off the mask of creeping green fascism. Follow the Money! Climate policy is [designed] to brainwash and control us all and make mega-rich corporations richer. Destroy the CO2con!”
