readers may recall that relatively early on in the
cycle, leading infectious disease experts created the
Great Barrington Declaration.

lockdowns were destructive and "focused
protection" of vulnerable individuals was the way to properly
address the highly infectious, novel virus.
scientists, including a good number of epidemiologists and
infectious disease specialists, signed the document.
It turns out these
scientists were correct.
The effects of
lockdown may now be killing more people than are dying of Covid,
official statistics suggest.
excess deaths from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) show
that around 1,000 more people than usual are currently dying
each week from conditions other than the virus.
understands that the Department of Health has ordered an
investigation into the figures amid concern that the deaths are
linked to delays to and deferment of treatment for conditions
such as cancer, diabetes and heart disease.
Perhaps it is time
to consider if the World Climate Declaration, which has been
signed by 1,200 climate scientists and related professionals, may be
something to seriously consider, promote, and act on.
In the document,
these scientists affirm that there is "no
political fiction that humans cause most or all climate
change and the claim that the science behind this notion is
'settled', has been dealt a savage blow by the publication
of a 'World Climate Declaration (WCD)' signed by over 1,100
scientists and professionals.
There is no
climate emergency, say the authors, who are drawn from
across the world and led by the Norwegian physics Nobel
Prize laureate Professor Ivar Giaever.

on beliefs, not on sound self-critical science.

lead author of the declaration, Professor Richard Lindzen,
has called the current climate narrative "absurd", but
acknowledged that trillions of dollars and the relentless
propaganda from grant-dependent academics and agenda-driven
journalists currently says it is not absurd.
ire in the WCD is reserved for climate models.

emphasis to empirical science."
The declaration is
being promoted by the
CLINTEL Group, which plans to give "solicited
and unsolicited" advice on climate change and energy transition to
governments and companies worldwide.
I am thinking that
most of the advice they will give will be unsolicited. Here is
hoping that policy makers, teachers, and everyone else listen to the
group's many points:

Perhaps the last
point the CLINTEL Group makes is the most critical:

people care about their environment.

with a background in the climate sciences, and who would like to
to do so is HERE.
If "Green New Deal"
polices are allowed to continue, they will be even more destructive
on this nation and the world than the Covid policies have been.
