Nick DeIuliis, The Hill: While the novel coronavirus has triggered a global debate on how to balance short-term infection rates with long-term economic viability, a crucial epiphany is slowly emerging through the deliberations. Society realizes that the “Church of Climate” has propagated an epic fraud upon individual rights, taxpayers, and free enterprise.
Ole Humlum, Professor of Physical Geography, University of Oslo, Norway: According to the instrumental temperature record (since about 1850), 2019 was a very warm year, but cooler than 2016. Since 2004, when detailed recording of ocean temperatures began, the global oceans above 1900 m depth have, on average, warmed somewhat. Since 1972, however, snow extent has been largely stable. Data from tide gauges all over the world suggest an average global sea-level rise of 1–1.5 mm/year, while the satellite record suggests a rise of about 3.2 mm/year, or more. The noticeable difference in rate (a ratio of at least 1:2) between the two data sets still has no broadly accepted explanation. The focus in this report is on observations, and not on output from numerical models.
Paul Driessen, senior policy advisor for the Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow:On multiple levels – federal, state and local ... hospitals, industries, armed forces and nursing homes – the United States and nearly every other country seem to have been woefully underprepared for the Coronavirus that came roaring out of Wuhan, China at the end of 2019. If all these countries were paying so little attention to these recurrent pandemics, and spending so little money preparing for them – what WERE they focusing on? The answer is allegedly “dangerous man-made global warming and climate change.” In other words, very little on diseases that hit humanity very hard and quite often – versus enormous, inordinate amounts on a supposed threat that exists primarily in computer models and media headlines, and assumes Earth’s climate was stable and near-perfect until a few decades ago. Most of the Main Stream Media, universsities and National Academies of Science agree with these Wunderkinder.
