CALGARY, Alberta (PRWEB) May 03, 2018
As climate change bureaucrats meet in Bonn to hash out a Paris Agreement rule book for the COP24 meeting in Katowice, Poland, as reported by CTV News on April 30, 2018, Friends of Science Society have issued a new report calling on the Canadian government to align climate and energy policies with the United States.
The new Friends of Science work entitled “CHECKSTOP: Challenging the Canadian Federal Government’s Carbon Pollution Pricing System Results Report” is a scathing review of the federal government’s recent paper issued April 30, 2018 via Facebook.
Meanwhile in Bonn, UN climate chief Patricia Espinosa demands more money, saying that otherwise developing nations are left with the equivalent of an ‘umbrella in a hurricane’ – and that funding must be upped from millions to trillions, as reported by Reuters, May 02, 2018.
Friends of Science Society says the umbrella analogy is precisely the problem with climate change dogma. The climate catastrophe theme has become all pervasive, largely due to millions of dollars in funding from various philanthropic groups which have their own agenda, as discussed in their “CHECKSTOP” report.
Friends of Science dispute Espinosa’s claims that extreme weather is increasing, referring to reports by Dr. Judith Curry who cites the IPCC and SREX. Curry testified to the US Senate on Jan. 14, 2016 that extreme weather was not attributable to human industrial activities.
Research by Dr. John Christy, who testified to the US House Committee on Space, Science and Technology on March 29, 2017, using a graph from the IPCC report, showed that human greenhouse gas industrial emissions had a negligible effect on global warming.
Furthermore, numerous recent peer-reviewed publications question the ‘climate sensitivity’ (impact) of carbon dioxide on global warming.
None of these new findings are part of reported discussions at the Bonn meeting, suggesting that the Paris Agreement committee is not interested in climate science, but they only have their hand out for climate finance, says Friends of Science.
Robert Lyman, Ottawa energy policy consultant, former public servant and diplomat, predicted financial issues would crop up when the United States withdrew from the Paris Agreement, as the US was targeted to be a major donor, in his June 04, 2017 commentary for the Friends of Science blog: “Where will UN get its climate money now?” In a follow-up blog post, Robert Lyman noted that as of August 2017, the Green Climate Fund had only accumulated U.S. $9,678.3 million dollars.
Friends of Science Society is also critical of the Canadian government’s flimsy review of Gender Based Assessment in the carbon pricing report which is dismissive of economic impacts. Friends of Science Society says that young men, families, women, the elderly and disabled, aboriginal people and small/medium sized businesses all suffer from carbon pricing, while hedge fund participants and carbon market players win, at the expense of everyone else.
On May 15th, 2018 at Friends of Science Annual Event “Extreme Climate Uncertainty” in Calgary, Canadian climate scientist Dr. Madhav Khandekar will make a presentation on the topic of “Extreme Weather.” Friends of Science says this climate catastrophe threat is immorally used to scare people into compliance with climate dogma and economically damaging carbon taxes.
Friends of Science Society is an independent group of earth, atmospheric and solar scientists, engineers, and citizens who are celebrating its 16th 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).
