Ever since the distant days of 2005, when the original Boggart Blog was unleashed on the world our little team have been calling out the massive pseudoscientific fraud that has spread the climate change fallacy, the idea, based almost entirely on data output by mathematical models of the climate, that the predicted climate change catastrophe is the reuslt of Carbon Dioxide emitted into the atmosphere due to human activity, and the equally false claim that the science behind this notion is ‘settled’.
We have been called conspiracy theorists and worse, accused of being anti - science and described as mass murderers of third world babies, though how our holding opinions that question an official narrative causes anybody's death is as big a mystery as how a trace atmospheric gas (400 parts per million in air) which is not a pollutant and actually is essential to the continuation of life on this planet can cause the kind of vlimate upheaval that is allegedly happening now.
As it happens the narrative promoting the risible idea that "The Science Is Settled," and a few other trains of pseudoscientific misinformation used to keep ramping up the fear level among the general public have been kicked in the place where it hurts most by the publication of The World Climate Declaration (WCD) a study and report signed by over 1,100 scientists and professionals.
The authors, meteorologists, physicists, biologists, naturalists and well qualified people drawn from a host of other professions and academic disciplines and from all around the world conclude there is no climate emergency. The team led by the Norwegian physics Nobel Prize laureate Professor Ivar Giaever comment that climate science can be said to have degenerated into a discussion based on beliefs, not on sound self-critical science.
The scale of the opposition now gathering against this modern day dogma of ‘settled’ climate science is noteworthy, considering that the climate change dogma was the first of the 'unquestionable truths' of this quasi - religious cult of 'Scientism' that academics found their career, professional reputation and and personal life could be trashed should they dare to question it. Also over the past two decades it has been impossible for those wishing to undertake a critical study of the very dodgy computer models on which the claims are based and compare their predictions to what has actually been happening in the real world to raise grants for any climate research that departs from the political orthodoxy. (A full list of the signatories is available here.)
Another lead author of the declaration, Professor Richard Lindzen, has called the current climate narrative “absurd”, but acknowledged that trillions of dollars and the relentless propaganda from grant-dependent academics and agenda-driven journalists have convinced the majority of people in the developed world it is not absurd.
The WCD is scathing about the quality of the climate models, which are usually created not by professional computer programmers but by scientists who think they are better qualified to write the software because computers are 'scientific.'
In reality computers are not very scientific at all, take it from someone who worked with them for 30 years. They do not "store information as millions of little ones and zeros" or even millions of big ones and zeros, what they do is distinguish btween a positive (+) and negative (-) charge of static electricity. Everything else is instructions written by humans.
To believe the 'scientific' predictions of such a climate model is to accept that what the modellers have input is a reasonable representation of the real world. In fact it has been known for around twenty years that the computers are not fed empirical data gathered from around the world, but 'adjusted data' in other words information that has been manipulated, presumably to ensure it provides the required answer. Climate models now provide all the evidence referenced in discussions of climate upheaval and independant scientists see this as a problem. “We should free ourselves from the naïve belief in immature climate models,” says the WCD. “In future, climate research must give significantly more emphasis to empirical science.”
Since the end of the ‘Little Ice Age’ in around 1850, the world has warmed significantly less than predicted by the IPCC on the basis of modelled human influences. “The gap between the real world and the modelled world tells us that we are far from understanding climate change,” the WCD notes.
Publication of The Declaration is an enormously significant event, although it will be ignored by the mainstream media and political debate. But this is not the first time distinguished scientists have called for less mathematical speculation and more reality in climate science. In Italy a leading physicist, Emeritus Professor Antonino Zichichi recently led 48 science professors in stating that the role of CO2 emissions from human activity in climate change is “unjustifiably exaggerated and the catastrophic predictions used to justify irrational and authoritarian policies like 'net zero' are not realistic”. In their scientific view, “natural variation explains a substantial part of global warming observed since 1850”. Professor Zichichi has signed the WCD.
The Declaration notes oberves that the planet’s climate has varied greatly for as long as the planet has existed, with cycles of cold and warm periods. “It is no surprise that we are experiencing a period of warming,” it continues. Climate models have many shortcomings, “and are not remotely plausible as global policy tools” it warns. The amateur programmers deliberately blow up the effect of carbon dioxide, but ignore its beneficial effects.
“CO2 is not a pollutant,” the Declaration says (echoing what Boggart Abroad has been saying all these years,) “It is essential to all life on Earth. Photosynthesis is a blessing. More CO2 is beneficial for nature, greening the Earth; additional CO2 in the air has promoted growth in global plant biomass. It is also good for agriculture, increasing the yield of crops worldwide.”
In addition, the scientists claim that there is no statistical evidence that global warming is intensifying hurricanes, floods, droughts and such-like natural disasters, or making them more frequent, and provide datasets to back up this assertion.
“There is no climate emergency,” the Declaration goes on. “We strongly oppose the harmful and unrealistic net-zero CO2 policy proposed for 2050,” it says, adding that the aim of global policy should be “prosperity for all” by providing reliable and affordable energy at all times. “In a prosperous society, men and women are well educated, birth rates are low and people care about their environment,” it concludes.
The WCD is the latest sign that the ‘settled science’ narrative on which climate change fearmongering is based, is rapidly falling apart as one after the other the doom laden predictions fail to materialise.
The UK government is putting plans together for days of organised blackouts this winter, in what they call a "reasonable worst-case scenario" for energy shortages, according to reports in manstream media. Naturally they are blaming this on the embargo on importing gas from Russia but in reality Britain has never imported any more than a small amout of its gas from Russia. The real reason politicians and energy company CEOs are panicking is entirely due to their obession with obtaining all our energy from intermittent sources like wind and sunshine ...
UK Households Are Paying Wind Turbine Owners To Not Generate Electricity
On another near windless day here in the United Kingdom, Boggart Blog came across a very interesting piece if news. According to figures published by the business and management consultancy LCP, british taxpayers have been paying operators of wind turbines farms for the time their windmills were NOT generating electricity increased to record levels last year ...
Net Zero Is A Dangerous Fantasy, But Scientists Believe In Fairies It Seems
With oil and gas prices rocketing and the highly propted sustainable energy sources performing way befow expectations the energy crisis currently gripping Europe (with worse to come as food shortages start to bite, polticians still seem more intent on pandering to the green lobby and chasing the dream of a fossil fuel free world rather securing the energy and food supplies needed by the people they serve.
New UN Report on Climate Change – Nothing New, Nothing True
The latest United Nations (“UN”) Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (“IPCC”) report, published this week, once again, in scaremongering tone and the language of the panic stricken, claims that the planet is in peril (we are facing climate disaster, the clock is at one minute to midnight, we must take urgent action to destroy civilisation if we are to save the planet, the usual over - dramatised guff designed to spread fear and panic,) basically the same claim as they have been making at least twice a month for the past 20 years.
We need energy security – not Net Zero
Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has prompted a major rethink in the West. We have suddenly found ourselves vulnerable not just to rising prices in oil and gas, but also to inflation in other commodities – such as food and fertiliser. Of all these problems, the security of our energy supply has most exercised minds.
Net Zero Gone With The Wind - Boris Johnson Plans Seven New Nuclear Plants And Shelves Wind Expansion
Reports in mainstream media suggest Boris Johnson has done a U turn on his recently announced massive expansion of wind powered generating capacity. Sources in Westminster claim Boris has shelved his masterplan for a giant, floating wind farm in The North Sea and the government will reconsider plans to double or even treble the number of wind turbines in the countryside and approve plans for up to seven new nuclear reactors instead.
