Upwards of 500 leading climate scientists have signed and delivered a petition to the United Nations demanding an open, honest, and transparent debate on the issue. Their forceful “European Climate Declaration” contends that no emergency exists, and gross exaggeration has led an end-of-days radicalization of politics.
The working scientists in climate change and closely related fields are well aware that liberal political activists have seized on the issue as a way to create hysteria, blur the facts, and garner votes. In the U.S., upstarts such as New York socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez frightened uninformed people that the world would be uninhabitable in “like 12 years,” unless her Green New Deal was immediately implemented. Not a single Senate Democrat voted in favor of her climate hoax legislation.
The fake news media rolled out splashy headlines as the so-called “climate kids” lectured international diplomats at the U.N. and member of the U.S. Congress. Brainwashed children such as 16-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg have grown up in the midst of doomsday school curriculum and have been robbed of reality and hope.
“You all come to us young people for hope,” she said during an emotional video that went viral. “How dare you! You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words, and yet, I’m one of the lucky ones. People are suffering. People are dying. Entire ecosystems are collapsing. We are in the beginning of a mass extinction, and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth. How dare you!”
Powerful words, indeed. That is, if they had a basis in fact rather than data manipulated by political activists masquerading as scientists. It’s difficult to break the news to a youngster that there is no Santa Claus, Easter Bunny or Tooth Fairy. But the impartial European scientific community that petitioned for equal time and a fact-based discussion didn’t fit the biased media’s narrative. There were few, if any, splashy headlines.
“Climate science should be less political, while climate policies should be more scientific,” the European Climate Declaration reportedly states. “Scientists should openly address the uncertainties and exaggerations in their predictions of global warming.”
The 500 scientists do not stand alone despite false propaganda that “97 percent” of climate scientists agree with end-of-world models. Non-partisan polls show that 31,000 scientists reject these apocalyptic theories, and 40 percent of say “no convincing evidence” exists.
“I would like to see the public look upon global warming as just another scientific controversy and oppose any public policies until the major issues are settled, such as the cause,” founder of the Science and Environmental Policy Project, S. Fred Singer said. “If mostly natural, as NIPCC concludes, then the public policies currently discussed are pointless, hugely expensive, and wasteful of resources that could better be applied to real societal problems.”
The climate declaration submitted to the U.N. secretary-general reinforced the growing voices within the scientific community that current models that create the type of fear and dread showcased by youngsters such as Thunberg have no basis in facts.
“There is no statistical evidence that global warming is intensifying hurricanes, floods, droughts, and suchlike natural disasters, or making them more frequent,” the scientists stated. “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.”
But another little-known “inconvenient truth” these scientists boldly point out is that the current extremists’ policy to save the world is damaging our global eco-systems.
“However, CO2-mitigation measures are as damaging as they are costly. For instance, wind turbines kill birds and bats, and palm-oil plantations destroy the biodiversity of the rainforests,” the petitioning scientists state.
Many countries, including the U.S., are engaged in devastating acts of deforestation to create solar fields. During former President George W. Bush’s administration, homeowners were encouraged to take advantage of tax incentives to install panels and go green. Those middle-of-the-road policies were basically put on steroids during the Obama years. Today, vast forests are being leveled and replaced with solar panels. And, too many farmers have given up on tilling the soil in favor of cash for land use. Extremists policies are creating the exact illness they claimed to cure.
“Therefore, it is cruel as well as imprudent to advocate the squandering of trillions on the basis of results from such immature models,” the declaration reportedly states. “We urge you to follow a climate policy based on sound science, realistic economics, and genuine concern for those harmed by costly but unnecessary attempts at mitigation.”
