Take off the Veneer of Certainty on Climate Change Science says…

“Carbon dioxide is not a control knob that can fine tune climate” – Judith Curry, Atmospheric Scientist, Georgia Tech

“Mirrors and Mazes” – “… a beacon of light to see through the cloudy attempts to demonize CO2 as the satanic gas of our times. It is a must read and welcome contribution to the educational aspect of this hot scientific debate.

Echoing the sentiments of a blog post by Dr. Judith Curry, Friends of Science Society says it is time to take off the veneer of certainty on climate change science, citing Rupert Darwall’s essay on “The Veneer of Certainty Stoking Climate Alarm” posted on the Competitive Enterprise Institute’s website, Nov. 27, 2017, which includes surprising transcripts of a workshop of the American Physical Society (APS) on scientific uncertainty on climate change and questionable politicization of scientific evidence.

Considering these clear uncertainties, it is time to stop demonizing hydrocarbons like oil, natural gas and coal as in the #PoweringPastCoal campaign, initiated by Canada’s Minister of Environment and Climate Change at the Bonn COP23 Conference, says Friends of Science, as discussed in a three-part blog post of Nov. 29, 2017.

Despite persistent claims that there is a consensus on climate change, Friends of Science Society says their 2014 report “97% Consensus? NO! Global Warming Math Myths and Social Proofs” tells it like it is – there’s no consensus.

With nations like Ireland facing 600 million euros in fines for not reaching greenhouse gas reduction targets as reported in The Times, Nov. 28, 2017 and reblogged by the Global Warming Policy Foundation. and billions of dollars in burdensome costs for ineffective wind power as reported in Wind Aware Ireland’s latest report of Nov. 2017, the socio-economic impacts of ill thought-out climate change policy worldwide are devastating. Affordable, reliable energy policies must take precedence over uncertain climate ideology.

Another recent publication is “Mirrors and Mazes: A Guide Through the Climate Change Debate” by Dr. Howard Brady – a very accessible book about climate, written in plain language.

The book has earned kudos from Dr. William Happer, Cyrus Fogg Brackett Professor of Physics Emeritus at Princeton University: “I am especially fond of Mirrors and Mazes. It would be an excellent addition to the personal library of anyone who wants to understand climate facts, stripped of propaganda and emotion.”

Dr. Willie Soon, Senior Researcher, Solar and Stellar Physics Division, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics calls “Mirrors and Mazes” – “… a beacon of light to see through the cloudy attempts to demonize CO2 as the satanic gas of our times. It is a must read and welcome contribution to the educational aspect of this hot scientific debate.”

Since its formation in 2002, Friends of Science Society has argued for cost-benefit, evidence-based analysis of climate change and energy policies. Friends of Science holds the view that sun drives climate change, directly and indirectly, along with ocean cycles.

About

Friends of Science Society is an independent group of earth, atmospheric and solar scientists, engineers, and citizens, celebrating its 15th year of offering climate science insights. After a thorough review of a broad spectrum of literature on climate change, Friends of Science Society has concluded that the sun is the main driver of climate change, not carbon dioxide (CO2).
