500 Scientists: "No Climate Crises, Stop The Hysteria"

More than 500 scientists have sent a "Climate Declaration" to the United Nations leadership asking for a long overdue, high level, open debate on climate change---asking for more science and less hysteria.

They say, "Climate science should be less political, while climate policies should be more scientific."

Why is 16-year-old Greta Thunberg being elevated to celebrity, while these scientists are being silenced and dismissed?

Climate hysteria is pervasive---embodied in the 16-year-old, while the science of the Left is found wanting.

A call for honesty.

Be informed.

The hysteria.



The new 16-year-old champion of the "Climate Movement", little, angry Greta Thunberg, told the United Nations Assembly in New York this week:
"You have stolen my dreams"..."This is all wrong... I shouldn't be up here. I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean, yet you all come to us young people for hope. How dare you."

She reminded the UN the evidence has been "crystal clear" and the solutions to climate change are "nowhere in sight."

I agree, her dreams have been stolen, and she should be on the other side of the ocean in her school classroom in Sweden---not being used by secular progressives whose agenda has little to do with her dreams, her future or her peers, or even science, but everything to do with global redistribution of wealth and global political power.

What kind of people abuse children to push their agenda?


Tesla founder Elon Musk praised Greta this week for having "better reasoning & more heart than the vast majority of political leaders."

Democrat presidential candidates have been praising Greta this week for her "scathing speech targeting world leaders for what she described as their inaction against ecological self-extermination."

Beto O'Rourke:
"We need to do better for Greta, for students marching for our lives, and for all of the young people who will inherit our planet from us in worse shape than we found it, unless we act."

Kamala Harris:
"We are currently failing our nation's youth....We owe it to them to stand up to polluters and stop poisoning our planet."

Ironically, Harris is a member of Congress, and they have never "stood up to" the greatest polluter on the planet, China.

Bernie Sanders:
"What a disgrace that it takes a 16-year-old to tell world leaders what they won't acknowledge: We cannot continue with this type of ruthless capitalism that is destroying our planet. This is why we need young people leading our climate justice movement."

Bernie's right in one regard--This is a disgrace.

John Nolte said this week, "What kind of monster afflicts children with eco-anxiety by telling them they will be dead in 12 years? I'll tell you who: the child abusers in the establishment media, the environmental movement, and the Democrat Party--that's who."

He said:
Sadly, once you realize Climate Change is a hoax wrapped in a left-wing political movement, this deliberate act of terrorizing children with lies, a lie every bit as audacious as saying a meteor will hit the earth in 12 years, is revealed as something truly insidious.
Unfortunately, though, and we see this in our public schools and popular culture, the happiest place in the world for a leftist is that spot between parent and child, and that influential spot is mercilessly abused to destroy the most precious gift of childhood — innocence.
These wicked people relentlessly abuse their power to sexualize our children, lie to them about the biology of gender, radicalize them politically, and now, they are so desperate to push the Climate Change Hoax, there’s a full-blown propaganda campaign to scare the living **** out of them.

The deception is so pervasive that The Maryknoll missionaries, known officially as the Catholic Foreign Mission Society of America, sent out an official tweet this week comparing Greta to the Virgin Mary.


500 scientists disagree with the hysteria.



More than 500 scientists and professionals in climate and related fields, sent a European Climate Declaration to the Secretary-General of the United Nations asking for a long overdue, high level, open debate on climate change.

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.

“There is no climate emergency. Therefore, there is no cause for panic and alarm,” they note. “We strongly oppose the harmful and unrealistic net-zero CO2 policy proposed for 2050.”
“If better approaches emerge, and they certainly will, we have ample time to reflect and adapt. The aim of international policy should be to provide reliable and affordable energy at all times, and throughout the world,” they state.

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.

It's revealing that those who demand open-mindedness, tolerance, embracing reality, etc. in accepting their "progressive" ideology, practice none of it.

Takeaway



The Heritage Foundation has written a short article about the difference between a conservative and a progressive.

Three examples:

1. Conservatives and progressives have different views about individuals and communities.

Conservatives ask: "What can I do for myself, my family, my community, and my fellow citizens?"

Progressives ask: "What is unfair? What am I owed? What has offended me today? What must my country do for me?"

2. Conservatives and progressives have different views about diversity and choice.

For progressives, different ethnicities and gender identities are welcomed but a variety of opinions and ideas are not.

Progressives love the word, but do not apply it to decisions on education, healthcare or the environment.

Conservatives see people as individuals, not groups or "identities" and work for solutions from that perspective. They actually believe people should have choices.

3. Conservatives and progressives have a different view of "We the People."

Progressives circumvent "We the People", by using judges, executive orders and government bureaucrats behind closed doors to overturn the will of the people and advance their agenda.

Conservatives believe in individual rights, not special rights.

Be Informed. Be Discerning. Be Vigilant. Be Prayerful.

  1. This is just one more way the left is destroying our lives. By the way, the Oregon Petition Project has almost 32,000 scientists signed on--all of whom say the evidence is not convincing and they doubt that there is a need to address global warming, oops, I mean climate change. The "97%" of scientists that is always being thrown out there is not true, either.

  2. Great article Gary:

    In Truth..

    Thinking and aware people understand that our children have been indoctrinated and intentionally disabled by teaching them to make their decisions by following their "feelings". By design they have not been taught to be rational or logical, and as a result they are unable to discern and analyze. This is a clear Marxist tactic taken right out of Saul Aliniskys "Rules for Radicals" with the goal to tear America apart from the inside out.

    A primary objective of cultural Marxism is to remove God from society and replace Him with Government. The inalienable rights our forefathers assured us as coming from our Creator are now credited to Government, as is any sense of security or expectation of "fairness" or "justice". Again...a primary objective in Saul Alinsky’s "10 rules for radicals".

    Our children have been conditioned not to hear or process rational or logical information. They have been "converted" to a religion of "Leftism" (read Marxism). Because their reality is "faith based" they are deeply violated when these beliefs or values are challenged by fact or reason, and they have been taught to respond with anger, hatred, and accusations when their “feelings”.

    This is our fault. While I children were being indoctrinated what is it that we were doing that was more important? While our children were being taught Marxist values were we paying attention? Were we teaching them Christian godly values? Did we know that they were conditioned not to problem solve, to think analytically, to reason? Where were we when the needed us? Busy?

    Our Lord has given us the tools to enter this spiritual battlefield and prevail. Do we care to participate, or is our apathy and fear of reprisal / criticism too strong? After all, it is only the life and welfare of our children and our country that is at stake! Still too busy?

    Eph 6:11-18
    11 Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints. (NIV)

    Fear has been proven throughout history to be the single most effective tool to "manipulate" and "control" the masses. Politicians, educators, and Hollywood "stars" have come together to promote faith in secular leftism by attacking everything and everyone who disagrees in the least. Have we allowed these attacks to defeat us without a fight?
    It’s only the life of our Children, our freedom, our liberty, and our Country that are at stake.
    In truth…up till now hundreds of millions have hidden in safe corners while a minority are busily destroying our children and our nation. If we don’t stand in unison to defend them both, we WILL LOOSE THEM.

    Truth is a lonely warrior…
