Modern climate change “science” exists on a plane of its own, detached from the real world
Throughout the west, a war is being fought to establish a monopoly on truth. In the USA, a new Disinformation Governance Board is being rightly mocked as a ‘Ministry of Truth’ and legislators in the EU, UK and Canada are considering new laws to limit the expression of unauthorized opinions, to prevent the spread of ‘misinformation’. Much of the political establishment’s concern is driven by claims that the free exchange of ideas is making the jobs of experts and governments more difficult. But clues about the true nature of this war and the political establishment’s deepening metaphysical anxiety can be found in the wreckage of the climate debate. It shows just how divorced from reality politics has become. The political establishment is right to worry.
The reality is that, based on the paleoclimate record and the work done with models, the climate change we have been experiencing is caused by the sun and the oceans over which mankind has absolutely no control. Despite the hype, there has been no evidence that CO2 has any effect on climate. There is plenty of scientific rationale to support the conclusion that the climate sensitivity of CO2 is zero. Hence all efforts to reduce CO2 emissions will have no effect on global climate. Trillions of dollars have been spent fighting climate change world wide and no improvements to global climate have been reported.
