Manhattan Contrarian In Investors Business Daily

An op-ed written by myself and co-author Jim Wallace appeared Wednesday afternoon in IBD, titled "With Tax Reform Done, Trump Should Set Record Straight On Climate Change."  Here is a link to the piece.

The piece summarizes the Wallace, et al., research on the subject of attribution (or lack thereof) of global temperature change to human influences.  I have previously covered the Wallace, et al., research reports when they have been issued, most notably in "The 'Science' Underlying Climate Alarmism Turns Up Missing" on September 19, 2016, and "The Greatest Scientific Fraud Of All Time -- Part XV" on July 8, 2017.  It has taken some time, but finally this work is seeing a somewhat wider audience.

Key quote from the IBD op-ed:

So, what is the actual science behind the EF [Endangerment Finding -- the Obama EPA's determination that CO2 constitutes a "danger" to human health and safety]?  We confidently assert that in any Red/Blue evaluation of the science, where the Blue team supports the EF, the Blue team will lose badly.

"Warmists" claim a 97% scientific consensus regarding the hypothesized catastrophic impact of increased atmospheric concentrations of CO2 and other GHGs. But this illusion of consensus has only come about through misrepresentation of global temperatures and research results plus rigid enforcement of orthodoxy and refusal to debate for some two decades.

In accordance with the scientific method, the EF has been shown to be invalid at least three separate times over the past two years. One of us (Wallace) is the lead author of three scientific research reports that, each in a unique fashion, invalidated all of the lines of evidence on which EPA claimed to rely for its EF.
