DETROIT (ChurchMilitant.com) - International scientists are sounding the alarm on the myth of man-made climate change.
A total of 1,609 scientists and professionals worldwide signed a declaration this month that dismissed the idea of a global climate emergency.
According to that group of experts, identifying itself as CLINTEL, "There is no climate emergency. Therefore, there is no cause for panic and alarm. We strongly oppose the harmful and unrealistic net-zero CO2 policy proposed for 2050. Go for adaptation instead of mitigation; adaptation works whatever the causes are."
"To believe the outcome of a climate model is to believe what the model makers have put in. This is precisely the problem of today's climate discussion to which climate models are central," the declaration continued.
It adds, "Climate science has degenerated into a discussion based on beliefs, not on sound self-critical science. Should not we free ourselves from the naive belief in immature climate models?"
The group highlights the hypocrisy of climate alarmists regarding CO2 in the atmosphere.
"CO2 is not a pollutant. It is essential to all life on earth. More CO2 is favorable for nature, greening our planet," the scientists assert. "Additional CO2 in the air has promoted growth in global plant biomass. It is also profitable for agriculture, increasing the yields of crops worldwide."
The scientists also dispel myths about climate change causing more natural disasters, the pace at which temperatures have warmed since the Little Ice Age ended in 1850 and the policies proposed by governments to address the alleged issue.
"Climate science should be less political, while climate policies should be more scientific," the group proposes. "Scientists should openly address uncertainties and exaggerations in their predictions of global warming, while politicians should dispassionately count the real costs as well as the imagined benefits of their policy measures."
Two Nobel laureates, John Francis Clauser and Ivar Giaever, both physicists, were among the signatories. In a May statement, Clauser noted, "The popular narrative about climate change reflects a dangerous corruption of science that threatens the world's economy and the well-being of billions of people."
"It has been promoted and extended by similarly misguided business marketing agents, politicians, journalists, government agencies and environmentalists. In my opinion, there is no real climate crisis," he continued.
John Christy, a climatologist and professor of atmospheric science at the University of Alabama in Huntsville and the director of the Earth System Science Center, told The Epoch Times earlier this month, "For the conterminous U.S. as a whole, the last 10 years have produced only an average number of records. The 1930s are still champs [for producing the most 100-plus temperature days in a year]."
The "There Is No Climate Emergency" declaration emerges against the backdrop of the "Season of Creation," commencing Friday with the "World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation" and extending through Oct. 4, the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi. The "Season of Creation" is a propagandist ecumenical initiative dedicated to promoting the "green gospel." Pope Francis has been affiliated with the initiative since 2015. In his letter for the environmental day of prayer, Francis asserts:
The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has stated that acting now with greater urgency means that we will not miss our chance to create a more sustainable and just world. ... We must transform the public policies that govern our societies and shape the lives of young people today and tomorrow. ... It is clear that the richer nations have contracted an "ecological debt" that must be paid ... The world leaders who will gather for the COP28 summit in Dubai from Nov. 30 to Dec. 12 must listen to science and institute a rapid and equitable transition to end the era of fossil fuels.
The supreme pontiff also revealed last week his intention to release "a second Laudato Si" on Oct. 4. A 2015 letter by Pope Francis urged a global battle against climate change. Many of the United States' most notorious leftist bishops have become advocates of the climate change narrative.
The Deposit of Faith Coalition aims to expose the U.S. bishops' promotion of climate change hysteria and other anti-America agendas. Tuesday's The Download featured a review outlining the coalition's work and outcomes. Church Militant also devoted over 600 hours of research to produce an exposé debunking the counterfeit climate narrative.
