THE Poznan climate change conference guarantees the public will be fed the usual diet of myths and lies by an Australian media opposed to the Garnaut report, the most comprehensive published analysis of climate change mitigation so far. Paul Kelly >> more
The unfathomable "myths and lies" ignore the views of many in the science establishment who remain unequivocal about accepted conclusions in relation to CO2 emissions and climate influences. In an open letter to the Secretary-General of the United Nations, no less than 100 prominent scientists declared:
The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has issued increasingly alarming conclusions about the climatic influences of human-produced carbon dioxide (CO2), a non-polluting gas that is essential to plant photosynthesis. While we understand the evidence that has led them to view CO2 emissions as harmful, the IPCC's conclusions are quite inadequate as justification for implementing policies that will markedly diminish future prosperity. In particular, it is not established that it is possible to significantly alter global climate through cuts in human greenhouse gas emissions. On top of which, because attempts to cut emissions will slow development, the current UN approach of CO2 reduction is likely to increase human suffering from future climate change rather than to decrease it.In other words the current Climate Change debate, so accepted by mainstream media and many Governments - of which our own is no exception - is taking us and the world, in entirely the wrong direction.
The letter concluded:
Attempts to prevent global climate change from occurring are ultimately futile, and constitute a tragic misallocation of resources that would be better spent on humanity's real and pressing problems.Readers may want to amaze themselves and follow the list of signatories link ...
