Welcome to the new version of European Tribune. It's just a new layout, so everything should work as before - please report bugs here.

How easy is it not to notice that these are the comments of an economist on the political advisories from the UN ( the IPCC is a UN bureaucracy ) to governments based on the premise that carbon dioxide levels are linked to climate change - even though it is and remains a trace gas essential for plant growth, which has proliferated during the increase. This is in line with greenhouse practice of adding it to their air to increase plant growth. It is easy to find motormouths decrying the scientific illiteracy of people who question the Holy Writ of Climate Science - but few who notice science is in fact based on questioning assumptions.  The question of sequestration is one of policies granting the UN overriding land use authority now exercised by native tribes, farmers, and governments. The result is that energy policy has a new tool to override opposition....supplementing the silencing of alternative views such as those of broadcasters of meteorological reports whose derision was palpable. Another tactic is to use Web of Trust a tool of censorship by red flagging non PC sites as untrustworthy rather than what would be proper caution as malware infested. This would include anything from vaccination resistance ( concerned about the explosion of immunization of children in what is an unprecedented assault on undeveloped immune systems ) to those monitoring atmospheric spraying ( something done as far back as the 1950's when silver iodide was used as hail suppressant )...  or the unaccountable harassment of people not born in Germany or alive during the events in question when they dare to think that Holocaust Denial may be a whitewash program hiding Allied genocide in postwar Germany and surrounding countries. Mother Jones had an interesting article on the math wars disguising civilian deaths in Iraq after the 2003 invasion which would lead one to think holocaust denial is in fact government policy...just not necessarily involving deaths of Jews.
Which brings us to the stalking horse trying to tax the world to the tune of trillions annually by the honoured practice of Chicken Little "The Sky is Falling"...or in this case "The Sky is on Fire and We is Gonna Fry". Proof of future conditions being impossible, vilification and Strawman Argumentation / Poisoning the Well Argumentation is in full hue and cry. Some articles to consider, realizing this call of alarm has been the bane of both the first two directors of the Climate Research Unit in East Anglia ( which is how they are labeled 'Deniers' although scientific investigation should not be based on a premise, but open to interpreting available facts. ) Professor Judith Curry has interesting views on this situation, as do JoNova, Denis Rancourt and Australian Climate Skeptics.

BTW When did climate become stable ? I missed the advisory.

opit:
the premise that carbon dioxide levels are linked to climate change
A majority of climate scientists agreeing about the significant role of human activity in climate change is not exactly a "premise". That's your opinion.

Nothing wrong with questioning assumptions, of course, particularly with science. Then again, if we're talking about science, why use the expression "Holy Writ"?

opit:

policies granting the UN overriding land use authority now exercised by native tribes, farmers, and governments.
[citation needed] Could you substantiate that claim with specific facts and references?

Also: "atmospheric spraying", "Allied genocide in postwar Germany and surrounding countries" and the likes...

opit:

alternative views such as those of broadcasters of meteorological reports whose derision was palpable.
TV weather anchors being more authoritative sources than climate scientists, because?

The American Meteorological Society on climate change:
https:/www.ametsoc.org/ams/index.cfm/about-ams/ams-statements/statements-of-the-ams-in-force/climat e-change

Survey of AMS members on climate change:
http://journals.ametsoc.org/doi/pdf/10.1175/BAMS-D-13-00091.1

The summary is that, officially, the AMS thinks climate change is happening, CO2 is a prime cause, and most of their members agree.
