MIT Climate Scientist Dr. Richard Lindzen: 'Demonization of CO2 is irrational at best and even modest warming is mostly beneficial.' - 'When someone says this is the warmest temperature on record. What are they talking about? It’s just nonsense. This is a very tiny change period.'
Princeton Physicist Dr. Will Happer: 'Policies to slow CO2 emissions are really based on nonsense. We are being led down a false path. To call carbon dioxide a pollutant is really Orwellian. You are calling something a pollutant that we all produce. Where does that lead us eventually?'
Greenpeace Co-Founder Dr. Patrick Moore: 'We are dealing with pure political propaganda that has nothing to do with science.'
Wysmuller: 'If mankind shuts down every coal and gas fired power plant, steel mill, and every auto, plane, train and ship and if we revert to a bare bones subsistence economy, with minimal fire and combustion products, we might be able to reduce CO2 growth from its average annual increase of 1.5ppm over the Keeling Curve era (since 1958) to about 0.5ppm. When a massive 38% CO2 increase doesn’t even begin to accelerate Sea Level rise, how would we ever attempt to measure any Sea Level fall resulting from an almost impossible to achieve 1ppm reduction. The instrument that could measure that drop has yet to be invented!'
'They found that, on average, a typical participant’s cognitive scores dropped 21 percent with a 400 ppm increase in CO2. Here are their astonishing findings for four of the nine cognitive functions scored in a double-blind test of the impact of elevated CO2 levels.'
'We have to do everything we can to keep outdoor CO2 levels below 600 ppm because something serious starts happening then.'
