Squishi Rishi has been hoodwinked by the fishy
Net Zero reflects the corruption of science and the unravelling of western reason
From having been thought originally to be a bit… well, squishy about climate change, Britain’s prime minister Rishi Sunak appears to have been pulled well and truly into line.
Last month, he created a new Department of Energy Security and Net Zero. He’s now said to be “absolutely committed” to reaching the Net Zero carbon emissions target by 2050.
As has been noted on this website on numerous occasions, this policy is utterly crazy — a wrecking ball hurled against western economies without any reputable scientific backing. Those who promote it mindlessly parrot the mantra that opponents “deny” the science, which purports to tell us the unchallengeable fact that rising carbon emissions are heating up the world’s climate to catastrophic levels. Yet scientists faithful to scientific principles are telling us precisely the opposite. Net Zero and the climate change obsession are anti-science.
A 46-page paper on the issue was recently published by three scientists: Dr. William Happer, emeritus professor of physics at Princeton; Dr. Richard Lindzen, emeritus professor of atmospheric science at Massachusetts Institute of Technology; and Gregory Wrightstone, a geologist and executive director of the CO2 Coalition.
The authors relentlessly expose the fundamental flaws in the supposedly scientific claims promoting catastrophic man-made global warming theory, and also in the means by which climate-catastrophe scientists have arrived at them. The three scientists take apart the claims made under the banner of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change in which government-controlled officials have rewritten scientists’ evidence to arrive at diametrically opposite conclusions in the IPCC policy papers — which are then used to formulate government climate-related policies.
The three scientists’ paper is not for the squishy, let alone the fishy. They say, authoritatively and uncompromisingly that Net Zero policies are
scientifically invalid and a threat to the lives of billions of people.
Read anything in the mainstream media about this vitally important paper? No, of course not.
