97% Consensus? NO! Global Warming Math Myths & Social Proofs

To gain public acceptance for carbon taxes and renewable energy subsidies, several studies claim a 97% scientific consensus on global warming. This Friends of Science report reveals that it is only a mathematical manipulation and psychological ploy. Our deconstruction shows that there is no 97% consensus on human-caused global warming as claimed in these studies. None of these studies indicate any agreement with a catastrophic view of human-caused global warming. The 16-year pause in global warming has led to demands for the IPCC to be overhauled.

Letter: Electrical Costs Spark Action in Alberta

A letter written in response to a Southern Alberta Newspapers article called for: a) An inquiry into the true costs of wind power including transmission, b) A moratorium on wind development until benefit, if any, can be established. The letter shows that "Wind generation in Alberta has cost about $5 billion, of which about $2 billion (so far) have been paid for by customers for underused transmission dedicated to wind." Expensive transmission lines have to be overbuilt by 300% because the annual wind power output is only 32% of the designed capacity. Wind power is notoriously variable and unreliable requiring 100% backup by conventional power plants.

Views on the Influence of CO2 on Climate

Dr. Thoenes of the Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands, presents his views on the influence of CO2 on global climate change for the Friends of Science Society. His commentary concludes that "it is impossible that a significant climate change can take place due to rising CO2-emissions. This means then that all measures to reduce CO2-emissions are useless. This would have enormous financial consequences for society."

Answering Nonsensical Charges Against ICSC, by Tom Harris

Tom Harris, Executive Director of the International Climate Science Coalition (ICSC), provides answers to nonsensical changes against ISCS in an error-riddled article published by Judah Freed on May 12, 2015 on Daily Kos. Freed's article is an attempt to discourage the media from publishing climate change facts from climate skeptics. The ICSC averages more than one significant media hit a day. Harris's answers to the nonsensical charges were deleted by Daily Kos shortly after it was submitted. The Daily Kos article falsely accuses the ICSC of being "industry-funded climate change deniers", and falsely claim that the Heartland Institute is a front for the Koch Brothers. They have never funded climate science activities of the Heartland Institute. The IPCC and FOS both promote the NIPCC report produced by the Heartland Institute.

Better to Have Global Warming than Global Cooling

Dr. Patrick Moore is a co-founder of Greenpeace. He says "there is no conclusive proof that human emissions of carbon dioxide are the dominant cause of the minor warming of the Earth’s atmosphere over the past 100 years." Looking at the geological record, he writes, "Then an ice age occurred 450 million years ago when CO2 was still about 10 times higher than today." He notes that we are a "tropical species" and that warming would be far better than cooling.
