Climate Scientists School Greta Thunberg

Given the media obsession with a sixteen year old Swedish truant, it has managed to ignore this story. You might imagine that all the world’s climate scientists are on board with the climate change dogma. Apparently, such is not the case. The world's best climate scientists are decidedly not on board.

Breitbart News reports:

Just as 16-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg addressed the U.N. Climate Action Summit in New York accusing world leaders of robbing her of her future, scientists were begging the United Nations to keep hysteria from obscuring facts.

“Climate science should be less political, while climate policies should be more scientific,” the declaration states. “Scientists should openly address the uncertainties and exaggerations in their predictions of global warming, while politicians should dispassionately count the real benefits as well as the imagined costs of adaptation to global warming, and the real costs as well as the imagined benefits of mitigation.”

The scientists underscored the importance of not rushing into enormously expensive climate action before fully ascertaining the facts.

“There is no statistical evidence that global warming is intensifying hurricanes, floods, droughts and suchlike natural disasters, or making them more frequent,” they declared.

“However, CO2-mitigation measures are as damaging as they are costly. For instance, wind turbines kill birds and bats, and palm-oil plantations destroy the biodiversity of the rainforests.”

The signatories of the declaration also insist that public policy must respect scientific and economic realities and not just reflect the most fashionable frenzy of the day.

Breitbart continues:

In particular, the scientists criticize the general-circulation models of climate on which international policy is currently founded as “unfit for their purpose.”

“Therefore, it is cruel as well as imprudent to advocate the squandering of trillions on the basis of results from such immature models,” they propose. “Current climate policies pointlessly, grievously undermine the economic system, putting lives at risk in countries denied access to affordable, continuous electrical power.”

“We urge you to follow a climate policy based on sound science, realistic economics and genuine concern for those harmed by costly but unnecessary attempts at mitigation,” they declare.

Let’s see… the current climate change mania is based on a supposed scientific consensus. So now we read the judgments of 500 leading climate scientists… and everyone will ignore it.

If we are doomed, it won’t be because of the climate.

Did you ever wonder why the data presented to back their assertions are always oddly chosen? The starting and stopping points should be questioned. If one looks at the data before and after the data utilized one finds that the data does NOT demonstrate what Scoldilocks and the people behind her state. One should NEVER trust the charts as presented for they do not represent what is actually happening. These are some of the most dishonest people that exist when one is talking about science.

I'm pretty sure the Democrats say the scientists are wrong. I'm certain that some are, but I'm also certain that those are the ones the Dems agree with.
