‘There Is No Climate Emergency’: More Than 1,100 Scientists, Professionals Worldwide Led by Nobel Prize Laureate (Document)

“Climate science has degenerated into a discussion based on beliefs, not on sound self-critical science,” the group states.

QUICK FACTS:
  • Climate Intelligence (CLINTEL), an independent foundation that operates in the fields of climate change and climate policy, published a document containing the signatures of more than 1,100 scientists and experts who assert that “there is no climate emergency.”
  • The list comes as climate alarmists blame climate change for everything from floods, to “asymmetrical” bumblebee wings, to childhood obesity.
  • Those on CLINTEL’s list argue that so-called “climate science” ought to be less political and more science-based. “Climate science should be less political, while climate policies should be more scientific,” they write. “Scientists should openly address uncertainties and exaggerations in their predictions of global warming, while politicians should dispassionately count the real costs as well as the imagined benefits of their policy measures.”
  • The experts note that warmer weather is caused by both natural as well as man-made factors: “The geological archive reveals that Earth’s climate has varied as long as the planet has existed, with natural cold and warm phases. The Little Ice Age ended as recently as 1850. Therefore, it is no surprise that we now are experiencing a period of warming.”
  • They reveal that said warming is in fact “far slower than predicted”: The world has warmed significantly less than predicted by IPCC on the basis of modeled anthropogenic forcing. The gap between the real world and the modeled world tells us that we are far from understanding climate change.”
  • The group also points out the “inadequacy” of models pushed by climate alarmists: “Climate models have many shortcomings and are not remotely plausible as policy tools. They do not only exaggerate the effect of greenhouse gases, they also ignore the fact that enriching the atmosphere with CO2 is beneficial.”
  • The signers go on to say that belief in the outcomes of these “immature” models is “naive”: “To believe the outcome of a climate model is to believe what the model makers have put in. This is precisely the problem of today’s climate discussion to which climate models are central. Climate science has degenerated into a discussion based on beliefs, not on sound self-critical science. Should not we free ourselves from the naive belief in immature climate models?”
  • At the top of CLINTEL’s list, which is continuously updated to include new signers, is Nobel Prize laureate Professor Ivar Giaever.
READ CLINTEL’S DOCUMENT:
“GLOBAL WARMING HAS NOT INCREASED NATURAL DISASTERS”:

The signers state: “There is no statistical evidence that global warming is intensifying hurricanes, floods, droughts and suchlike natural disasters, or making them more frequent. However, there is ample evidence that CO2-mitigation measures are as damaging as they are costly.”

BACKGROUND:
  • The frantic predictions of climate doomsdayers have been proven wrong time and time again.
  • In June 1989, “environmental officials” from the United Nations (U.N.) predicted that “entire nations could be wiped off the face of the Earth by rising sea levels if the global warming trend is not reversed by the year 2000.” At the time, one U.N. official warned governments they “have a 10-year window of opportunity to solve the greenhouse effect before it goes beyond human control.”
  • In 2006, while promoting his documentary “An Inconvenient Truth,” Al Gore said that humanity had only 10 years left before the world would reach a point of no return, calling the situation a “planetary emergency.”
  • Climate alarm evangelists like Al Gore, Barack Obama, Leonardo DiCaprio, Bono, and Taylor Swift own properties on beaches their ilk claim will soon be flooded by rising sea levels, and they constantly fly on private jets they claim pollute the atmosphere.
  • CLINTEL was founded in 2019 by emeritus professor of geophysics Guus Berkhout and science journalist Marcel Crok, according to the group’s website.
