There is no climate emergency
To believe the outcome of a climate model is to believe what the model makers have put in. This is precisely the problem of today’s climate discussion, to which climate models are central. Climate science has degenerated into a discussion based on beliefs, not.
On sound self-critical science. Should we not free ourselves from the naive belief in immature climate models?
Climate science should be less political, while climate policies should be more scientific. 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 geological archive reveals that Earth’s climate has varied as long as the planet has existed, with natural cold and warm phases. The Little Ice Age ended as recently as 1850. Therefore, it is no surprise that we are now experiencing a period of warming.
Natural as well as anthropogenic factors cause warming
The world has warmed significantly less than predicted by IPCC on the basis of modelled anthropogenic forcing. The gap between the real world and the modelled world tells us that we are far from understanding climate change.
Warming is far slower than predicted
Climate models have many shortcomings and are not remotely plausible as policy tools. They do not only exaggerate the effect of greenhouse gases, they also ignore the fact that enriching the atmosphere with CO2 is beneficial.
Climate policy relies on inadequate models
CO2 is not a pollutant. It is essential to all life on Earth. More CO2 is favourable for nature, greening our planet. Additional CO2 in the air has promoted growth in global plant biomass. It is also profitable for agriculture, increasing the yields of crops worldwide.
CO2 is plant food, the basis of all life on Earth
There is no statistical evidence that global warming is intensifying hurricanes, floods, droughts, and suchlike natural disasters, or making them more frequent. However, there is ample evidence that CO2mitigation measures are as damaging as they are costly.
Global warming has not increased natural disasters
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. Go for adaptation instead of mitigation; adaptation works, whatever the causes are.
