    I wonder why that climate girl got so much air time yet our media never reported on this grassroots effort of 500 scientist to warn the UN? Anyone have any ideas?

    Umm the short form of the letter as described in the article: "don't destroy the economy following green policies that don't work".
    I think it generally makes sense. The article didn't mention how to achieve that.

      These are the first prominent climate scientists that make some sense.

      Actually what’s happened is the climate scientists are all reasonable but their voices have been suppressed. A few puppets have been amplified

      Scientists do believe this. Politicians warp the message. If you look at the science you will see the outcome is not that bad

      I am jaded by the consequences of the warped message, as many others. So I'd rather approach the whole topic with heavy dose of scientific scepticism.

      All 500 scientists are fake? Did you look into their CVs? I mean I’m interested in your opinion but I’m surprised at how you came to that conclusion

      Oh well after you edit it to add the sarcasm I look like a fool. Honestly I’ve seen you make many absurd claims on blind which is why I wanted to follow up

    So these scientists claim there is no emergency

    Which is fine cause I have seen the same hysteria in the past

    I would like to know who these scientists are?

    If there’s 500 then none of them are prominent

      So it’s important to listen to the scientists. They’ve been getting steamrolled by politicians and activists the last few years.

    “[c]urrent climate policies pointlessly and grievously undermine the economic system, putting lives at risk in countries denied access to affordable, reliable electrical energy.”
    I thought it otherwise.
    In this case they'll lose job by signing it.

    From the letter:

    Natural as well as anthropogenic factors cause warming

    The geological archive reveals that Earth’s climate has varied as long as the planet has existed, with natural cold and warm phases. The Little Ice Age ended as recently as 1850. Therefore, it is no surprise that we now are expe- riencing a period of warming. Only very few peer-reviewed papers even go so far as to say that recent warming is chiefly anthropogenic..

    Warming is far slower than predicted

    The world has warmed at less than half the originally-predicted rate, and at less than half the rate to be expected on the basis of net anthropogenic forcing and radiative imbalance. It tells us that we are far from understanding climate change.

    Climate policy relies on inadequate models

    Climate models have many shortcomings and are not remotely plausible as policy tools. Moreover, they most likely exaggerate the effect of greenhouse gases such as CO2. In addition, they ignore the fact that enriching the atmos- phere with CO2 is beneficial.
