Excerpt: Climate sensitivity to future increases in CO2 concentration is calculated to be 0.50K, including the positive feedback effects of H2O, while climate sensitivities to CH4 and N2O are almost undetectable at 0.06K and 0.08K respectively. This result strongly suggests that increasing levels of CO2 will not lead to significant changes in earth temperature and that increases in CH4 and N2O will have very little discernable impact...This is an unfortunate situation since world governments are implementing ambitious and expensive plans to limit the increase of global temperatures by reduction of CO2 emissions to atmosphere, and to achieve a net zero carbon economy, in the belief that CO2 emissions are the main driver of global temperature increases...
An increase in average Relative Humidity of 1% will result in a temperature increase of 0.03Kelvin. By comparison, CO2 is a bit player.
MIT Climate Scientists Dr. Richard Lindzen: When asked his opinion of Israeli solutions to climate change, Lindzen said: "Solution implies there is a problem." The real question is if the plan's worth doing. To that, he replied: "Not at all." "Demonizing carbon dioxide is just crazy," said [MIT climate scientist Richard] Lindzen. "It means we have a population that's forgotten elementary biology. They don't remember photosynthesis. We've already benefited due to the increase in CO2 by probably over a trillion dollars increase in agricultural productivity. The earth is greening due to this."
Nir Shaviv, a professor of physics at Hebrew University, told JNS that he feels many climate scientists are under pressure to produce alarming reports. There is "such a large climate industry that people need to publish things that show a large effect [from man-made emissions], or they don't get grants," he explained. Shaviv said the IPCC's scientists are not looking at all the evidence. "The thing that they're totally missing is the fact that the sun has a big effect on climate. We can simulate it in large-scale simulations." Shaviv: "So I'm totally confident after 20 years that the link is there, the sun has a large effect on climate."
The peer-reviewed paper, produced by a team of almost two dozen scientists from around the world, concluded that previous studies did not adequately consider the role of solar energy in explaining increased temperatures. The new study was released just as the UN released its sixth “Assessment Report,” known as AR6, that once again argued in favor of the view that man-kind’s emissions of CO2 were to blame for global warming...“Depending on which published data and studies you use, you can show that all of the warming is caused by the sun, but the IPCC uses a different data set to come up with the opposite conclusion,” lead study author Ronan Connolly, Ph.D. told The Epoch Times in a video interview. “In their insistence on forcing a so-called scientific consensus, the IPCC seems to have decided to consider only those data sets and studies that support their chosen narrative,” he added.
Bill Penky is a former meteorologist with the U.S. Navy Weather Research Facility who flew with the famous Hurricane Hunters into the eye of storms.
Meteorologist & Hurricane Expert Bill Penky: "Climate is a long-term, large area, or global, an average of variable warming and cooling events. We’ve had 100,000-year-long ice ages interspersed with 12,000-year-long interglacial warm periods. Yet, ever-present in our minds, media, and politics for at least the last 22 years have been model-based predictions of catastrophic global warming. And, before that, back in the 1970s, the “scare-of-the-day” was—yep, you guessed it—catastrophic global cooling. But, Earth isn’t a block of ice or a flaming orb. Where’s the scientific evidence of a supposed climate doomsday? There is none!"
"BILL PEKNY holds physics M.S. and B.S. degrees from Georgia Tech and DePaul University, plus graduate study in physical meteorology and numerical analysis at Florida State University and the University of Utah, and a visiting scholar appointment at the Ginzton Laboratory of Applied Physics at Stanford University. Bill’s career in science spans over 50 years in the U.S. Armed Forces and the aerospace industry. His career highlights include: Project Stormfury with the U.S. Navy Hurricane Hunters; applied atmospheric physics and meteorology research."
In 2018, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared, "Climate change is the greatest health challenge of the 21st century, and threatens all aspects of the society in which we live." Now COVID-19 has top billing as the existential health threat, but the proposed response is the same, writes Marc Morano in the fall issue of issue of the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons.
"Climate distress is very difficult, if not impossible, to bear alone...The IPCC report is the bearer of alarming news for all on Earth. How can we best hear and respond to this alarm, caring for ourselves and others while mustering motivation and commitment for desperately needed action? The research of climate psychology tells us that rather than suppress or avoid our distress, we need to welcome it as a healthy response to the climate crisis. If we are not feeling some level of fear and grief, we are in denial. Acknowledging the myriad feelings of distress we have in response to climate breakdown is crucial for sustained action in response. Our feelings show us how much we care about our world, our communities, our lives and our loved ones. This caring is the basis for the action and change our world needs from us all right now.
