Dutch Climate Intelligence Foundation Challenges Belgian Climate Alarmists

No less than 3200 Belgian academics support a terrifying climate story and claim it is five to twelve. According to them, draconian measures are necessary to save the world. Herewith our reaction[1]. Science versus religion Science differs from religion because theoretical claims have to be verified with observations. If modelling results can predict measurements in advance (which is quite different than explaining them afterwards!) then you can say the model is validated and then you can safely apply it in practice. But if that is not the case, then you cannot state the model represents the truth. Using it in practice is irresponsible. Far more complicated than a simple CO2 relationship The current climate model (‘IPCC model’) systematically yields overstated predictions compared to measurements and can therefore is not suitable to be used in making climate policy – especially if that policy results in extremely high costs and a destabilized energy infrastructure. We are definitely not the only ones with this warning. Already some of the most renowned scientists have preceded us (e.g. Freeman Dyson, Frederic Seitz, Robert Jastrow, William Nierenberg, Richard Lindzen), including Nobel Prize winners (e.g. Ivar Giaever and Robert Laughlin). They also argue that the Earth’s climate is far too complicated to be explained by a simple one-dimensional CO2 relationship. Specific comments of the Foundation In the following we comment on the claims by the Belgian signatories: Claim 1. The earth is warming up. Worldwide, the average temperature has already risen by about 1°C (compared to the average temperature between 1850 and 1900).” Comment: Yes, the Earth is warming up. But that is business as usual. Earth’s history tells us that climate change has always happened. The geological archive shows very nicely that hot and cold periods have alternated regularly. This happened with sudden jerks and jolts,...
