4.3 The Climate Scientists' Register
One of the primary drivers of the climate scare and consequent mitigation regulations and agreements now being enabled across the world is a widespread misunderstanding about the role of CO2 in global climate change. Consequently, ICSC created the Climate Scientists’ Register to provide a simple, non-partisan, yet accurate document about CO2 and climate change that ordinary people can understand. If the public is well-informed, then it will be significantly more difficult for governments to implement costly and demonstrably futile CO2 controls.
We are convinced that an effective way of doing this is to get a large number of leading climate science experts from across the political spectrum to endorse a brief, non-partisan statement that clearly asserts that today’s science does not support the belief that human-caused emissions of CO2 will result in dangerous global warming. Here is the statment that, so far, 141 leading scientists who study the causes of climate change have endorsed:
“We, the undersigned, having assessed the relevant scientific evidence, do not find convincing support for the hypothesis that human emissions of carbon dioxide are causing, or will in the foreseeable future cause, dangerous global warming.”
ICSC is now working with the expert endorsers to explain to the public, media and government that recent research findings strongly indicate that CO2 emissions are in no way a threat to the environment or society—now or in the foreseeable future.
In preparation for the next UN Climate Change conference in South Africa in December 2011 (see Section 4.5), ICSC will work to greatly enlarge the Register list and to broadly publicize it (and especially the science that backs the Register statement).
The Climate Scientists' Register project is described in detail in Annex D.2.
