Charles Battig, M.D. and engineer: In the propaganda wars committed in the name of righteous eco-environmentalism, the term "climate" has been defined as whatever is necessary to achieve compliance from the masses, and financial gain for the ruling classes. Being a physician (as well as an engineer), I always wanted to pose the question to Al ( the earth has a fever) Gore...where precisely shall we stick the thermometer in sick mother earth?
Rafael Reif, President of MIT: Global warming is not a distant problem — not distant in time or space. Communities across the United States and around the world are already experiencing the impacts. Without immediate and concerted action, the damaging consequences will grow worse. As the Pentagon describes it, climate change is a “threat multiplier,” because its direct effects intensify other challenges, including mass migrations and zero-sum conflicts over existential resources like water and food. In short, global warming and its consequences present risks too grave to gamble with.
Right to withdraw from Paris Agreement (W Soon, C Monckton, I Marko, S Armstrong, W Briggs, K Green, H Harde, D Legates, R Reif)05.Jul.2017
Willie Soon, Christopher Monckton, skepitcal of Catastrophic Man-Made Global Warmiing: “Fortunately, contrary to Professor Reif’s claims, the actual current scientific understanding of Earth’s climate dispels the popular delusion that any manmade global warming will be dangerous. That means adhering to the Paris agreement would be ‘a bad deal for America,’ and not only on economic and equity grounds. “In the last 20 years, humans have released over a third of all the CO2 produced since the beginning of the industrial period. Yet global mean surface temperature has remained essentially constant for at least 15 years – a fact that has been acknowledged by the IPCC, whose models failed to predict it.”
Paul Driessen Driessen is senior policy analyst for the Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow: Demands that the world replace fossil fuels with wind, solar and biofuel energy – to prevent supposed catastrophes caused by man-made global warming and climate change – ignore three fundamental flaws. 1) In the Real World the unprecedented warming and disasters are simply not happening: not with temperatures, rising seas, extreme weather or other alleged problems. 2) The process of convicting oil, gas, coal and carbon dioxide emissions of climate cataclysms has been unscientific and disingenuous. 3) Renewable energy proponents pay little or no attention to the land and raw material requirements, and associated environmental impacts, of wind, solar and biofuel programs.
