Richard Lindzen is an atmospheric physicist, Emeritus Professor at MIT. An implausible conjecture backed by false evidence and repeated incessantly has become politically correct ‘knowledge,’ and is used to promote the overturn of industrial civilization. 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. There is at least one positive aspect to the present situation. None of the proposed policies will have much impact on greenhouse gases. Thus we will continue to benefit from the one thing that can be clearly attributed to elevated carbon dioxide: namely, its effective role as a plant fertilizer, and reducer of the drought vulnerability of plants.
James Lovelock, PhD in Medicine, Chemist, Independent Scientist, Environmentalist. This renowned scientist, famous environmentalist and patron of Britain's SONE, Supporters of Nuclear Energy, is certain that catastrophic man-made global warming, climate disruption, sea-level rise is going to manifest itself by 2028. Lovelock believes global warming is now irreversible, and that nothing can prevent large parts of the planet becoming too hot to inhabit, or sinking underwater, resulting in mass migration, famine and epidemics. Britain is going to become a lifeboat for refugees from mainland Europe, so instead of wasting our time on wind turbines we need to start planning how to survive.
Howard Cork Hayden, Emeritus Physics Professor, University of Connecticut: In the 5th Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental report on Climate Change (AR5 of the IPCC) it says, "There is high confidence that orbital forcing is the primary external driver of glacial cycles." The implied chain of events is this: 1. Milankovitch cycles change the atmospheric CO2 concentration; 2. CO2 changes then cause temperature changes. To my knowledge, no ‘climate scientist’ in any institution, with any amount of funding, with any amount of computing power available, has ever asked, let alone answered, how this chain of events could happen. By December 2038, we’ll have logged two 30-year-average satellite data points. To alarmists, these very few data points are enough to demand that all use of fossil fuels come to an immediate halt.
Roger Higgs, geologist, Founder, Geoclastica Ltd. Synthesis of archaeological, astrophysical, geological and palaeoclimatological data covering the last 2,000 years shows the Sun, not CO2, controls global temperature and portends a sea-level rise of ~3 metres by 2100. Modern warming coincides with rising CO2 accidentally. • Warming will continue until ~2090, lagging ~100y behind the modern solar GM's 1991 magnetic peak. • The modern GM portends another rapid ~3m SL rise by ice collapse, starting by ~2040 and ending by ~2100. • Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (2014) assertions supposedly incriminating man's CO2 emissions but disproven here include: - the Sun is unimportant in climate change, - Holocene SL was never higher than now, - no SL oscillation of the previous 1700y exceeded 25cm, until the ongoing ~30cm rise since 1700 (in fact RBT was ~10x greater, and averaged ~30x faster).
