Climate - Change Your Mind

I can honestly say that I have heard very convincing arguments from all the different sides, and I think I'm actually more neutral on the issue now than I was before I started this project. There is so much gray area when you begin to mix science and politics,

A new video by Friends of Science Society has gone viral on YouTube, with many people happy to hear their worst fears about climate change have been calmed with a common-sense approach. Seems people are tired of bad news, apocalyptic stories in the press like that of Newsweek's March 13, 2019 op-ed slamming President Trump for climate denial and condemning his choice of Prof. William Happer to lead a panel on open, civil review of climate science.

Friends of Science, Good News viral video challenges the common claim of a 97% scientific consensus showing that a key consensus study researcher openly admitted, after doing the research that, “I’m actually more neutral on the issue now.”

“This entire process has been an exercise in re-educating myself about the climate debate and, in the process, I can honestly say that I have heard very convincing arguments from all the different sides, and I think I'm actually more neutral on the issue now than I was before I started this project. There is so much gray area when you begin to mix science and politics, environmental issues and social issues, calculated rational thinking with emotions, etc...” -M.K. Zimmerman MA Thesis, “The Consensus on the Consensus.”

Mathew Nisbet’s 2018 work shows how green billionaires with vested interests in renewables have funded environmental groups and non-profit journals for a decade. They have hyped the catastrophic climate view.

Friends of Science Society good news video offers six points for your consideration and discussion: 1) Climate cycles between warm and cold 2) Warming benefits northern countries 3) CO2 enhances plant growth and crops 4) Sea levels change due to many factors 5) Warm climatic periods have more stable weather 6) Warming has economic benefits; "Climate Action" would cost more than doing nothing.

Human history is rich in material about cyclical climate change, from the warm and stable Medieval Warm Period in books like “The Great Warming” by Brian Fagan, or his study “The Little Ice Age: How Climate Made History.” Climate was so erratic in the Little Ice Age that there was widespread famine and civil unrest.

However, humankind adapted, survived and continued to innovate.

In an op-ed published by CFACT on March 10, 2019, the bad news hype of today is likened to medieval prognostication, like a “Climate Horrorscope.”

Robert Murphy’s review of the William Nordhaus climate change plan published Nov. 5, 2018, in The Library of Economics and Liberty, shows it would cost trillions more with little beneficial effect, than simply doing nothing and adapting to what may come.

Consequently a Presidential Committee on Climate Security is crucial and timely, as new climate science information emerges all the time.

The Global Warming Policy Foundation has just issued a new report on March 11, 2019, by Danish astrophysicist Henrik Svensmark, discussing how the sun drives climate change.

Friends of Science 16th Annual Event “Polar Bears and Solar Flares” will take place April 10, 2019 in Calgary where polarizing views on polar bears will be reviewed along with the sun's influence on climate.
