Climate Exit: Climate Science is NOT Settled

Climate Exit: Climate Science is NOT Settled, by Viv Forbes.

For at least a decade we have been told by the UN/IPCC, by most government media and officials, by many politicians, and by the Green “charities” and their media friends that “the science is settled”. We are lectured by Hollywood stars, failed politicians and billionaire speculators that anyone who opposes the World War on Carbon Dioxide is ignorant, mischievous or supporting some hidden vested interest. We endure calls for an end to free speech for climate sceptics, smearing with derogatory terms like “denier”, and even aggressive punishments like dismissal and legal action against sceptics for speaking out.

We notice … the steadfast refusal of alarmists to debate facts and issues. Why are they so afraid of words? Surely this is a sign that their facts are shonky and their arguments are feeble? They fear they are losing the confidence of the public.

Climate Exit

The real problem for the proponents of the carbon dioxide theory is that there is no empirical evidence for the theory — it is based purely on models and deduction. What directly relevant empirical evidence there is (on water vapor in the upper atmosphere) says the theory is wrong. As it happens, we recently found the big flaw in the climate models. The empirical evidence fits with the fixed model, which shows that carbon dioxide is only a fifth to a tenth as powerful as in the carbon dioxide theory.

In a short time with no costly international meetings and very little publicity, Clexit has gathered the support of over 115 members in 20 countries. Please look at the list of Foundation Members and countries, at the skills, qualifications, experience and wisdom of our founding members; and the many other well-qualified dissenters listed at the  end. The science is clearly not settled. …

Many Clexit members have held very senior positions in research, industry or academia but no longer have sensitive positions, careers or incomes to protect, so are free to express honest opinions, which they have done by supporting “Clexit”.
