Scientists Challenge UK Govt Climate Committee to ‘Drop flawed science and the Climate Change millstone – Save the economy’. CO2 is the Gas Of Life (‘GOL’), it is not a problem
The recommendation that the UK cut its greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80 per cent* is “total madness based on false science” said Piers Corbyn of WeatherAction long range forecasters.
“There is no evidence that Carbon dioxide has ever controlled, is controlling or will ever control world temperatures or climate and I challenge the promoters of this nonsense to produce evidence to justify their policies – or drop them, just as 13 world scientists** have similarly challenged the UN.

“Climate Change policy is a millstone around the UK and world economies. The beneficiaries are oil companies who ram up prices with abandon (taking advantage of limits placed on expansion of coal), bio-fuel producers who are increasing food prices and starvation, and the booming industry of climate change parasites such as carbon traders and nuclear power-mongers.
“Taxpayers and the developing world are the losers. There is a world recession now upon us which is being made deeper by Climate Change policies and the perpetrators must be called to account. Banks and industry are going bust yet the green fundamentalists want to impose more of this madness on the world. They actually want to increase their burden on the UK economy and deepen the world recession**.
“Genuine green policies to defend bio-diversity and reduce waste should be supported but the deceitful manipulation of the goodwill of many people in order to promote policies of mass taxation, expensive and dangerous energy like nuclear power and cuts in world living standards must be stopped. The UK and the world now need cheap energy solutions like coal to diesel technology which can be made smoke free. The danger for honest green campaigners – unless they break from the stranglehold of the Climate Change lobby – is that when the Global Warming swindle is exposed their spirited defence of nature will be forgotten too.
“CO2 is no problem – it is the Gas of Life (GOL). The problem is Climate Change Policy – not Climate Change which is beyond man’s control. Global warming is over. World temperatures have fallen from their peak ten years ago while GOL (CO2) has been rising rapidly. The world was much warmer than now in the Bronze age 4,000 years ago and there was much less GOL (CO2) then. The bounteousness of world vegetation goes up with GOL. We need more GOL not less!
“13 world scientists wrote** to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon in July asking for evidence to justify UN Climate Change policy and calling for the UN’s climate committee (IPCC) to be made accountable. Tim Yeo MP** (chair of the Parliament Environment Audit Committee) was also written to in July. Neither have acknowledged or replied. The reason is they have nothing to say. I urge members of the public to send the scientists’ letter to the UN** to their MP and ask their MPs to make the UN and Tim Yeo+ ‘Put Up or Shut Up’. Gordon Brown** was also written to and his office promised to reply”.
“…The UK should cut its greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80 per cent*by mid-century, the Government’s climate change committee recommended (7 Oct). In a letter to the new Energy and Climate Change Secretary Ed Miliband, the committee’s chairman Adair Turner said the tougher target would be “challenging but feasible”, and could be achieved at a cost of 1 per cent to 2 per cent of GDP in 2050…”
