Climategate – Copenhagen The Danish Text And 141 Climatologists Demand Proof Of AGW

Day 2 of the COP15 farce and the cracks are appearing faster than limos on the streets of Copenhagen.

Saudia Arabia has concerns over Climategate and wants the IPCC data and predictions verified independently and by an organisation that can be trusted

Then there is the so called Danish text which made a brief appearance in a news report yesterday, and now like Climategate is assuming a life of its own.

“The UN Copenhagen climate talks are in disarray today after developing countries reacted furiously to leaked documents that show world leaders will next week be asked to sign an agreement that hands more power to rich countries and sidelines the UN’s role in all future climate change negotiations”
“The agreement, leaked to the Guardian, is a departure from the Kyoto protocol’s principle that rich nations, which have emitted the bulk of the CO2, should take on firm and binding commitments to reduce greenhouse gases, while poorer nations were not compelled to act. The draft hands effective control of climate change finance to the World Bank; would abandon the Kyoto protocol – the only legally binding treaty that the world has on emissions reductions; and would make any money to help poor countries adapt to climate change dependent on them taking a range of actions.”

This a curious document to have been prepared, no UN and having Climate Change finance, and by that effective control done by a bank.

There is so much double-dealing and smoke and mirrors with warmists it’s starting to look more like total anarchy than a summit; at best the messages are confused or is that confusing?

The questions raised by Climategate gather even more force as 141 Scientists ask the UN (IPCC) for convincing evidence, in a open letter to Ban Ki Moon: they say:

Climate change science is in a period of ‘negative discovery’ – the more we learn about this exceptionally complex and rapidly evolving field the more we realize how little we know. Truly, the science is NOT settled.

Therefore, there is no sound reason to impose expensive and restrictive public policy decisions on the peoples of the Earth without first providing convincing evidence that human activities are causing dangerous climate change beyond that resulting from natural causes. Before any precipitate action is taken, we must have solid observational data demonstrating that recent changes in climate differ substantially from changes observed in the past and are well in excess of normal variations caused by solar cycles, ocean currents, changes in the Earth’s orbital parameters and other natural phenomena.

We the undersigned, being qualified in climate-related scientific disciplines, challenge the UNFCCC and supporters of the United Nations Climate Change Conference to produce convincing OBSERVATIONAL EVIDENCE for their claims of dangerous human-caused global warming and other changes in climate. Projections of possible future scenarios from unproven computer models of climate are not acceptable substitutes for real world data obtained through unbiased and rigorous scientific investigation.

Specifically, we challenge supporters of the hypothesis of dangerous human-caused climate change to demonstrate that:

1. Variations in global climate in the last hundred years are significantly outside the natural range experienced in previous centuries;
2. Humanity’s emissions of carbon dioxide and other ‘greenhouse gases’ (GHG) are having a dangerous impact on global climate;
3. Computer-based models can meaningfully replicate the impact of all of the natural factors that may significantly influence climate;
4. Sea levels are rising dangerously at a rate that has accelerated with increasing human GHG emissions, thereby threatening small islands and coastal communities;
5. The incidence of malaria is increasing due to recent climate changes;
6. Human society and natural ecosystems cannot adapt to foreseeable climate change as they have done in the past;
7. Worldwide glacier retreat, and sea ice melting in Polar Regions , is unusual and related to increases in human GHG emissions;
8. Polar bears and other Arctic and Antarctic wildlife are unable to adapt to anticipated local climate change effects, independent of the causes of those changes;
9. Hurricanes, other tropical cyclones and associated extreme weather events are increasing in severity and frequency;
10. Data recorded by ground-based stations are a reliable indicator of surface temperature trends.

  1. Can anyone tell me why, whenever global warming and Co2 emissions are being discussed by Sky News, CNN and the BBC, pictures of power station cooling towers are shown?

    Do they not know that the stuff that comes out of a cooling tower is water vapour, the cleanest and purest substance on earth.

    The ignorance is overwhelming but also indicative of the majority of global warming proponents.

  2. Well spotted bit inconvenient Co2 being colourless,

    Most media organisations are staffed with people who are left of centre politically.

    AGW is the new socialism

  3. The climate scandal is all about the massive inbound object that NASA announced they found in 1983 then lied about. This is what theyre hiding with the chemtrails sprayed every day globally. News here: http://www.docstoc.com/docs/6519605/WarNews

  4. I cannot believe this will work!
