Paul Driessen, senior policy advisor for the Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow: Fifty years ago, I helped organize Earth Day #1 programs on my college campus, calling attention to serious pollution problems that afflicted much of the USA. Over the ensuing decades, laws, regulations, and changed attitudes, practices and technologies reduced most of that pollution, often dramatically. What I find fascinating in all this is the steadfast, often nasty determination of scientists, politicians and interest groups promoting alarmist themes – and profiting immensely from them – to reject and deny any science, history and evidence that undermines their claim that nothing like this ever happened before.
David Wojick, Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow, CFACT, Washington, D.C., Ph.D. Philosophy of Science and Mathematical Logic, B.Sc. Civil Engineering: After lifting the COVID-19 lockdowns, national parliaments must oppose the impracticable green agendas of supranational organizations to construct a utopian Earth. Instead of spending trillions of dollars on fighting the unpredictable changes caused by natural variability (‘autonomous changes’), parliaments should focus on adapting to those changes.
David Wojick, Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow, CFACT, Washington, D.C., Ph.D. Philosophy of Science and Mathematical Logic, B.Sc. Civil Engineering: I recently described the all too often case where extreme computer modeling results feed the media into then feeding a public panic. A cascade of mindless fear. USA Today has provided a perfect example of promoting model based panic. Here is their panicky title: "Unsuitable for ‘human life to flourish’: Up to 3B will live in extreme heat by 2070, study warns" Three billion people will live where humans cannot survive? Seriously? Will they become billions of climate refugees? That is the absurd idea, right? This newspaper is a trusted source for many people, but here they publish pure nonsensical alarmist speculation as accepted fact.
Gregory Wrightstone, geologist has been investigating the Earth’s processes for more than 35 years. He is author of the newly published book Inconvenient Facts: There is certainly no doubt that the southwest of the United States experienced a severe drought in the period 2000 to 2018, but this study uses cherry picked data that ends in 2018, just as the drought itself was ending. Knowing full well that the dry period had ended more than a year prior to the time of publication, the authors still maintained the it was “ongoing as of 2020.” This is yet one more example of the willful abuse of science in order to further a state of fear concerning supposed man-made climate change.
