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).
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?).
John Shanahan, Civil Engineer, Editor of allaboutenergy.net and efn-usa.org: Individuals with science degrees (John Holdren, Tom Cochran, Michael Mann, Jim Hansen, etc.), organizations with science in their name (national academies of science), universities, organizations with misleading names (Natural Resources Defense Council), actors, main stream media, and politicians have been working since the 1970s to have the world stop using fossil fuels. This would set humanity back to lifestyles and life expectancies of the Middle Ages or at least back to the 1800s when there was much slavery and horse manure.
John Shanahan, Civil Engineer, Editor of allaboutenergy.net and efn-usa.org: Many people say that we must get rid of meats, modern agriculture and fossil fuels because they produce "a pollutant," carbon dioxide. This idea is abhorrent to many. It will kill billions of people and stop modern civilization dead in its tracks. Carbon dioxide is non-toxic at any historic atmospheric level. It is an essential molecule of life. At allaboutenergy.net, we want to keep using fossil fuels, modern agriculture, etc. We want clean water, air and land. We want to preserve wilderness, wildlife habitat and biodiversity. We don’t need cities and farms everywhere, killing off most wildlife, having only mono-culture farms across the planet. We want nuclear energy as soon as possible for everyone qualified to use it.
