An appeal was made by hundreds of professionals in various fields to world leaders in a signed declaration to the United Nations Climate Action Summit in New York on Sept. 23. These professionals implored leaders at the summit to study the facts more thoroughly on climate change before resorting to drastic and hugely expensive measures on climate action.
“Climate science should be less political, while climate policies should be more scientific,” the declaration states. In contrast to the apparently accepted view of many people at the United Nations Climate Action Summit, “Scientists should openly address the uncertainties and exaggerations in their predictions of global warming, while politicians should dispassionately count the real benefits as well as the imagined costs of adaptation to global warming, and the real costs as well as the imagined benefits of mitigation,” wrote the signatories.
Scientific studies and opinions need to be respected. Many intelligent people are active in their criticism of present climate-change models. “Therefore, it is cruel as well as imprudent to advocate the squandering of trillions on the basis of results from such immature models,” the signatories propose.
“We strongly oppose the harmful and unrealistic net-zero CO2 policy proposed for 2050.” The statement continued, “The aim of international policy should be to provide reliable and affordable energy at all times and throughout the world.”
“What we’re really selling is not the car, it’s mobility,” said Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang during MSNBC’s climate forum at Georgetown University on Sept 19. “So if you have mobility that’s then tied into a much more, if you had like, for example, this constant roving fleet of electric cars that you would just order up, then you could diminish the impact of ground transportation on our environment very, very quickly,” he said.
Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg, 16, appeared on the world stage at the U.N. Climate Action Summit in New York and accused world leaders of robbing her of her future. Her face distorted with passion, she read a script that was loaded with anger toward world leaders, blaming them for destroying her future.
“How dare you,” she lashed out. “People are suffering. People are dying. Entire ecosystems are collapsing.” Accompanying Thunberg everywhere she is giving speeches is Luisa-Marie Neubauer, a 23-year-old, far-left activist from Germany. She is the youth ambassador for an international lobbying and campaigning organization known as the “ONE Foundation,” which is funded by George Soros, Bill & Melinda Gates, and Bono, among other celebrity names, according to the One website.
President Trump chose to miss most of the U.N. Climate summit in favor of hosting a religious freedom summit to address the global problem of religious persecution. It was the first time any leader of a nation has addressed the U.N. on religious persecution.
Family Research Council (FRC) President Tony Perkins, who is also in charge of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom said, “I commend the president for taking on an issue that impacts people’s lives today, and the results can actually be measured. “
