The science of climate change is a science of consensus, and such, I’ve always been skeptical about the powers of consensus to reach a scientific conclusion.
It’s true that the political ideals, behind the climate change model where always far superior: hijacking something in the name of ‘good’ and to ‘save the planet’.
I’ve been reading this book about it.
I’ve found it very instructional.
One of Tony Abbott’s senior advisers has accused the United Nations of using false climate change models in order to achieve “a New World Order under the control of the UN”.
Maurice Newman is the Australian Prime Minister’s chief business adviser and a well-known climate change skeptic.
CAGM – Catastrophic anthropogenic global warming
In a piece for The Australian, Mr Newman claimed 95 per cent of models demonstrating the link between human CO2 emissions and catastrophic global warming “have been found to be in error”.
He claimed the world had consequently been subjected to “extravagance” from “climate catastrophists” for over five decades, before listing news articles apparently undermining claims about global warming in The Independent and the Mail Online.
“Why then, with such little evidence, does the UN insist the world spend hundreds of billions of dollars a year on futile climate change policies?” he asked.
“Perhaps Christiana Figueres, executive secretary of the UN’s Framework on Climate Change has the answer?”
His comments came after Figueres toured Australia and urged the country to move away from coal production, a major pollutant.
Abbott has in the past described coal as “good for humanity” and the “foundation of prosperity” for the foreseeable future, according to Reuters.
He also reportedly referred to the science underpinning climate change as “crap” in 2009 and used the Brisbane G20 meeting to warn against putting carbon emissions ahead of economic growth.
“The real agenda is concentrated political authority,” Newman wrote. “Global warming is the hook.
Rule the world
“It’s about a new world order under the control of the UN,” he added. “It is opposed to capitalism and freedom and has made environmental catastrophism a household topic to achieve its objective.”
His comments were criticised by climate change expert Professor David Karoly from the University of Melbourne, who told the BBC he was considering complaining to the Australian Press Council about the article.
“It is clear he has deliberately tried to mislead the Australian public,” he said, adding that his claims did not represent peer reviewed studies.
