This massive get together, called the 25th Conference of the Parties (COP25) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), was focused on .
Amidst this morass of misguided political hacks, however, The Heartland Institute, a free market think tank based in Arlington Heights, Illinois, held a counter conference on December 3 with presentations from some of the world’s leading experts on the real facts about the climate delusion.
Among the many important topics presented was the data that proves that the four ten-thousandths of the atmosphere which consists of CO2 cannot possibly control the thermostat of planet Earth.
Dr. William Happer, emeritus Professor at Princeton University and, until recently, one of President Trump’s top science advisors, led offthe illustrious group of speakers with the most amazingly direct condemnation of the absurdity in believing that mankind has any measurable impact on our planet’s climate. Happer said “there is a non-existent global warming emergency put forth by a phony, bizarre climate cult.”
Tom Harris, the junior author of this article, Executive Director of the International Climate Science Coalition, gave a talk in which he proved with specific data that reliance on diffuse wind and solar energy was nonsensical.
California-based meteorologist Anthony Watts gave an enlightening explanation of the fallacies presented in data to support the belief that man impacts our planet’s climate.
Watts has obtained data on every weather station in the United States and described many that can no longer offer valid information because cities and parking lots have closed in around them.
Stanley Goldenberg of the National Hurricane Center in Florida made fun of the idea that hurricanes were increasing as a result of a small increases in CO2 in our atmosphere.
Douglas Pollock, a civil industrial engineer from the University of Chile, delivered an outstanding talk at the Heartland conference in which he showed that the situation in Chile is a cautionary tale about what can happen in North America if we follow their disastrous devotion to green energy. “Please don’t follow, Chile!” said Pollock.
Pollock said that the impact on ‘global temperature’ of Chile’s expensive climate change plans would be 0.0000115 deg C per decade of forestalled global warming.
He showed a slide which said “Chile has become the world’s most important emerging country for its outstanding climate behavior,” and so won the UN’s Champion of the Earth award in December 2017.
Chile is “the cuddliest cuddly toy to the UN,” said Pollock. “What an honor!” he concluded sarcastically.
Müller pointed out that other EU members such as Poland, the Czech Republic, Estonia and Hungary are resisting the climate scare. Poland, for example, is determined to continue obtaining 80% of its electricity from coal.
The most surprising and arguably the most impactful talk of the conference was that by Naomi Seibt, a nineteen-year old German girl who described how she moved from climate alarmism to climate realism. Rather than interpreting Ms. Seibt excellent talk, we quote her directly:
“Once you start exploring… political topics that are more on the right or the libertarian department, things spiral out of control and you go down the path of understanding that many topics such as feminism, gender, socialism, post modernism and climate change hysteria, ,” said Seibt.
“I believe, unfortunately, that the goal is to shame humanity. and we are taught to look down upon our achievements with guilt, with shame and with disgust and from using fossil fuels as our main energy source. Because, look around.
“That is not just an insult to science. It is an insult to the complexity of nature and most importantly, it is an insult to the freedom of speech. And that’s why we are here today. To speak up and to bring the spirit of science back to life again.”
