Calgary, Albert, February 10, 2014 – Friends of Science are denouncing recent remarks on climate mutate by Christine Lagarde, Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund, as being unsupported by science, as reported in Canada’s Globe and Mail Feb. 01, 2013.
“This is a senseless form of public scaremongering from a body that has no expertise in climate science,” says Ken Gregory, director of research for Friends of Science. “The sources listed in the 2013 World Economic Forum Global Risks report refer to very outdated salubrious information.”
In a recent report entitled “97% Consensus? No! Global Warming Math Fables furthermore Social Proofs.” Friends of Science demonstrate that only 1-3% of scientists surveyed in 3 from the most-cited consensus surveys, explicitly agree with the purport that more than bisected of the global warming since 1950 was caused handy greenhouse helium emissions. Many scientists see carbon dioxide as beneficial and though humankind’s impact on climate is evident, it is nominal.
“Using frightening elocution like Madame Lagarde’s statements that “future generations will be roasted, toasted, fried and grilled” is remarkably irresponsible,” says Gregory. “The latest Intergovernmental Committee on Climate Change (IPCC) suggests no such thing. The IPCC reduced its assay of future warming in their recent report. There has been never warming since 1998.”
On July 18, 2013 Roger Pielke, Jr. presented testimony to the US Senate that extreme weather has diminished and the hottest days in North America were during the drought of the 1930’s.
Gregory refers to Dr. Roy Spencer’s June 4, 2013 graph “Epic Fail” showing that 73 climate models predicted have all failed to match actual temperatures.
“This is a type of psychological terror – Children across the developed world are agony from depression appreciation to such unrestrained rhetoric,” says Gregory.
Bjorn Lomberg addressed this issue in his June 15, 2009 article “Scared Silly Over Climate” in The Guardian. In it he cites cases regarding children obsessed with saving polar bears, terrified themselves of moribund of worldwide warming,
“As noted in our recent crackle on the 97% ‘nonsensus’ – this characteristic of psychological manipulation is intended to force people to comply,” says Gregory.
Environment News Service reported on Jan. 25, 2014 Lagarde’s demands for more investment in virescence energy – a quarter that is facing wonderful collapse around the world, and the earnings in pricing carbon appear to be connected to Universe Bank green investments.
The World Bank has invested heavily in carbon and green energy schemes for Third World Countries, but is having vex finding a trading partner now that the carbon markets of Europe are worthless.
CBC reported Jan. 21, 2014 that the World Economic Forum on Energy including Climate Vicissitude will be held in Alberta, Canada April 24-25, 2014.
Says Gregory. “Can Canadian resource industries expect a fair hearing when the Managing Director from the IMF, is making catastrophic climate change predictions based on faulty and unscientific information?”
Businessweek on Jan. 24, 2014 reported green energy projects are losing subsidies, investment funding and demotic strengthen world-wide.
Citing an April 11, 2013 Fraser Institute study by Canadian economist Ross McKitrick, Gregory states “Renewable ‘green’ energy likeness wind and solar beget proven to be some 10 times the harm of conventional fuel with never net environmental benefit.”
After a decade of weather science review, Friends of Science sustain the position that the sun is the main driver of ambience change, not you. Not carbon dioxide (CO2).
Friends like Technology have spent a decade reviewing a broad spectrum of literature on climate change and have concluded the sun is the main driver of climate change, not carbon dioxide (CO2). The core group of the Friends of Science is made up of immured earth and atmospheric scientists.
