Christy: 'We are asked to forgo the fundamental means by which human life flourishes today – carbon-based energy (coal, oil, natural gas). Why? ... because the by-product of this energy, carbon dioxide, must be "drastically reduced" to thwart a theorized "... extraordinary climate change and an unprecedented destruction of ecosystems." ... The real world simply doesn't align with the theory. Whether you are a Baptist (like me), a Buddhist or a Baha'i, the numbers come out the same ... and "science" is all about the numbers.'
A delegation of American climate change skeptics traveled to Vatican City to counter-program the pope and secretary-general and warn that curbing fossil fuel consumption would be more harmful to the world's poor than the effects of climate change "With the pope coming out with such strong statements on global warming and endorsing a U.N. treaty ... the Vatican is essentially going to confuse Catholics into thinking that their positions on man-made global warming fears are now an article of faith," said Marc Morano, who runs a website, Climate Depot, that questions climate change science and policies.
- 'Particulate aerosol pollution reductions...led to an increase in surface radiative forcing'
It has been assumed COVID lockdowns and their associated reductions in human CO2 emissions would be a “step in the right direction” with regard to climate change mitigation. But a new study finds the particulate (aerosol) pollution reductions from less industrial and transportation activity in Europe during the months of March to May (2020) actually led to an increase in surface radiative forcing ~65 times greater than from business-as-usual CO2 emissions.
