A group of 1,609 scientists from around the world — including two Nobel laureates — have signed onto a letter proclaiming that the storied “climate emergency” is a “myth.”
The group of scientists with the Global Climate Intelligence Group (CLINTEL) say there is “no climate emergency,” and have proclaimed that they “strongly oppose the harmful and unrealistic net-zero CO2 policy” being advocated by the climate alarmists.
ust The News reports:
CLINTEL is an independent foundation that operates in the fields of climate change and climate policy. CLINTEL was founded in 2019 by emeritus professor of geophysics Guus Berkhout and science journalist Marcel Crok.
“Scientists should openly address uncertainties and exaggerations in their predictions of global warming, while politicians should dispassionately count the real costs as well as the imagined benefits of their policy measures,” the declaration says.
Of the 1,609 scientists who have signed the declaration, two signatories are Nobel Prize laureates. The most recent to sign is Nobel Prize winner Dr. John F. Clauser, winner of the 2022 Nobel Prize in Physics. In an announcement from CLINTEL, Clauser is quoted as saying “Misguided climate science has metastasized into massive shock-journalistic pseudoscience. In turn, the pseudoscience has become a scapegoat for a wide variety of other unrelated ills. It has been promoted and extended by similarly misguided business marketing agents, politicians, journalists, government agencies, and environmentalists.”
The underlying report that engendered the declaration lays out a series of statements challenging many of the common climate claims. For example, one of the most common claims – and repeated without question by many – is that the earth will soon pass “tipping points that will lead to catastrophic environmental damage, including dangerous sea level rise, entire species going extinct, and even greater suffering in many nations, especially the poorest.”
The scientists with CLINTEL say that global warming has been “far slower than predicted,” and that “inadequate models” often guide unscientific climate policy.
The group also said that “There is no statistical evidence that global warming is intensifying hurricanes, floods, droughts and suchlike natural disasters, or making them more frequent.”
“There is no climate emergency. Therefore, there is no cause for panic and alarm. We strongly oppose the harmful and unrealistic net-zero CO2 policy proposed for 2050,” the group says. And they propose “adaptation instead of mitigation.”
In other words, there is no “consensus” that global warming is destroying us.Commentary
