Net Zero Plans Are Dangerous and Unsupported by Science and the Scientiﬁc Method
Net Zero initiatives of governments and private organizations are scientiﬁcally invalid and will lead to worldwide impoverishment and starvation if implemented, according to a paper published by the CO2 Coalition.
The 46-page paper details how the objectives of Net Zero to eliminate the use of fossil fuels and the emissions of greenhouse gases are based on analytical methods that violate fundamental tenets of the scientiﬁc method which originated more than 300 years ago.
“Reliable scientiﬁc knowledge is determined by the scientiﬁc method, where theoretical predictions are validated by observations or rejected by failing to do so,” say the paper’s authors – two renowned physicists and a geologist of more than 40 years.
“Agreement with observations is the measure of scientiﬁc truth,” continues the paper. “Scientiﬁc progress proceeds by the interplay of theory and observation. Theory explains observations and makes predictions of what will be observed in the future. Observations anchor understanding and weed out theories that don’t work.”
The paper predicts global starvation if fossil fuels are eliminated. At risk in coming decades would be half of the world’s 8.5 billion to 10 billion people who are fed by crops grown with fertilizers derived from fossil fuels. Listed as an example of Net Zero’s potential consequences is the economic and social calamity of Sri Lanka which had banned the use of fertilizers and pesticides made from fossil fuels.
“The recent experience in Sri Lanka provides a red alert. The world has just witnessed the collapse of the once bountiful agricultural sector of Sri Lanka as a result of government restrictions on mineral fertilizer,” the paper says.
The paper says that 600 million years of geological evidence shows that CO2 levels are near a record low and that atmospheric increases of the gas follow warming periods rather than precede them.
These data “are good enough to demolish the argument that atmospheric CO2 concentrations control Earth’s climate and the theory that fossil fuels and CO2 will cause catastrophic global warming. They will not.”
The paper’s authors are Dr. William Happer, Professor of Physics, Emeritus, Princeton University; Dr. Richard Lindzen, Alfred P. Sloan Professor of Atmospheric Science Emeritus, Massachusetts Institute of Technology; and Gregory Wrightstone, a geologist and executive director of the CO2 Coalition.
The paper says Net Zero regulations and actions are scientiﬁcally invalid because they:

The Arlington-based CO2 Coalition is a nonproﬁt organization of more than 100 scientists and researchers engaged in educating the public and policymakers on the beneﬁts of carbon dioxide and on the role of the gas in climate dynamics.
Indeed, contrary to all expectations, critical Antarctic winter sea ice has been increasing since 1979. While sea-ice experts have long voiced concerns that computer models of future Antarctic sea icecoverage are seriously flawed, biologists concerned about the future of ice-dependent emperor penguins and Antarctic krill have continued to use them to justify alarmist predictions.
Crockford concludes: “In both the Arctic and Antarctic, less summer sea ice has meant increased primary productivity, which in turn has meant more food for all animals. This explains in part why polar wildlife continues to thrive, even in areas with much reduced summer sea-ice coverage.”
Been stating these things for 2 decades:
LOL DOES ANYONE "IMPORTANT", NOT BELIEVE THE "RACIST WHITE MAN"???!!!
IT'S US NORMAL FOLKS THAT HAVE OUR OWN THOUGHT PROCESSES. HAHHHAAA
I don’t see this as an issue of race, Jean.
for 2+ decades, scientists like me have been able to show compelling, authentic data/evidence using accurate depictions on graphs and other places.
proving conclusively that ther is no climate crisis Over and over.
the data keeps consistently supporting our scientific case.
but look how much more powerful the crony capitalism, government corruption, ratings generating sensationalism and political agenda is than the authentic science.
bad/biased scientists are a big part of the problem as they exploit the situation to their professional and financial advantage.
