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.

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).
Roger Higgs, geologist, Founder, Geoclastica Ltd. IPCC’s next report, AR6, supposedly “will update our knowledge on climate change, its impacts and risks, and possible response options, and play an important role in implementing the Paris Agreement.” The selected “author teams show that the “necessary expertise” is lacking, as geologists are again mostly excluded. So the collective authorship is incompetent for its stated mission of reviewing the literature to assess climate change.
Roger Higgs, geologist, Founder, Geoclastica Ltd. First four of 27 points - 1) The IPCC (United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) has no geologists among the 100s of authors of its last major report (2013-14). Thus IPCC focuses on only the last 150 years (since thermometer records began, ~1850), yet Earth is 30 million (sic) times older, 2) The IPCC’s very existence relies on public belief in man-made global warming (AGW) by CO2. 3) The claimed “97% consensus among scientists” that AGW exists is a deception. 4) No educated person ‘denies’ modern global warming. Global warming deniers’ is a deceitful term for man-made global warming doubters & deniers (most of the world’s scientists?).
