It’s high time our politicians had a serious open and honest debate about our current policies regarding the mitigation efforts toward the so-called Net-Zero being driven by the understanding that we have a climate change emergency.

This is essential if we are to avoid irreparable damage to our future prosperity and civilization through the unfounded panic we are allowing to grip our populations.

It’s clear from the facts from many reliable scientific sources that we don’t have a Climate Change Emergency!

Yes… CO2 has increased, and we may have contributed in a small manner, but its still the lowest on average for 50,000 years, and the historical data shows that CO2 does not drive temperature and it may be more likely that temperature drives CO2.

Even though the current temperature increase is due to a transitioning out of an ice age that is a natural cycle in earth’s journey and its relationship to the sun and other planets, the current global temperature is at the lowest on average for 50,000 years.

Humankind thrived when temperatures were much higher than now, and Increasing CO2 is improving the global food supply.

All the crisis indicators of floods, sea level rise, forest fires, hurricanes, and tornadoes and extinctions are not getting worse, and some are actually improving.

Some adaption may eventually be needed, but certainly not any CO2 mitigation such as the foolish adoption of transient and expensive energy solutions such as wind and solar, especially when we have far better future alternatives such as Nuclear and green hydrogen that can be supported with the excess power of nuclear.

We all need to combat the much more important global pollution, but the western world is not the problem …..  it’s the rest.

To better to control global pollution we need to take responsibility for our share

by locally mining, growing, and manufacturing much more of what we consume.

This will ensure these activities are undertaken by developed economies for their own local consumption that have the correct controls and motivation to manage pollution.

This means avoiding the globalized approach to manufacturing and trade that has encouraged output in nations unprepared to produce in a sustainable manner.

This has also created significant pollution and heath concerns in these emerging economies as well as significant pollution in our oceans due to global trade using over-extended supply chains.
