COP 26: Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds

Never in the field of human history has so much complete nonsense been spoken at one place by so many. At COP 26 apocalyptic forecasts and imaginary impossible non -solutions to a non existent problem provided a cacophony of Blah, Blah ,Blah, Blah, Blah as Greta correctly said or as Johnson said "Humanity has long since run down the clock on climate change. It's one minute to midnight on that doomsday clock and we need to act now,"

The West's Main Stream Media notably the BBC, Guardian, NYT, Washington Post, NBC ,ABC, CBS,PBS and the US Cable networks have been the greatest propagators of this blizzard of misinformation. They have produced a generation of scared and psychologically disturbed teenagers and green fanatics who believe that the world has no future if fossil fuels continue to be used.

The whole COP 26 Net Zero campaign is founded on the flawed assumptions and algorithms which produced the IPCC model forecasts of coming dangerous temperature increases.  A very large majority of the consensus establishment  climate scientists have succumbed to a virulent infectious disease - the CO2 Derangement Syndrome. Those afflicted  by this syndrome  present with a spectrum of symptoms. First is the abandonment of any consideration of the thermodynamics of  energy flows, the different energy densities of the different energy sources  or the extreme difficulty of transitioning from the reliable high density power of f0ssil fuels to the diffuse inconstant power of solar and wind systems or the entropy losses inherent in suggested hydrogen systems.  Critical thinking capacity is badly degraded.  Intellectual hubris, confirmation bias, group think, the messiah complex and a need to feel at once powerful and at the same time morally self-righteous caused those worst affected to delude first themselves, then politicians,  governments, the politically correct chattering classes and almost the entire UK and US media that anthropogenic CO2 was the main climate driver. This led governments to introduce policies which have wasted trillions of dollars in a quixotic and futile  attempt to control earth's temperature by reducing CO2 emissions.

There is also a total inability to recognize the most obvious Millennial and 60 year  emergent cyclic patterns which are trivially obvious in the astronomic data , and in solar activity and drive earth's  temperature with a delay caused by the oceanic temperature inertia.

Here is the Abstract of my paper at


This paper begins by reviewing the relationship between CO2 and Millennial temperature cycles. CO2 levels follow temperature changes. CO2 is the dependent variable and there is no calculable consistent relationship between the two. The uncertainties and wide range of out-comes of model calculations of climate radiative forcing arise from the improbable basic assumption that anthropogenic CO2 is the major controller of global temperatures. Earth’s climate is the result of resonances and beats between the phases of cyclic processes of varying wavelengths and amplitudes. At all scales, including the scale of the solar planetary system, sub-sets of oscillating systems develop synchronous behaviors which then produce changing patterns of periodicities in time and space in the emergent data. Solar activity as represented by the Oulu cosmic ray count is here correlated with the Hadsst3 temperatures and is the main driver of global temperatures at Millennial scales. The Millennial pattern is projected forwards to 2037. Earth has just passed the peak of a Millennial cycle and will generally cool until 2680 – 2700. At the same time, and not merely coincidentally, the earth has now reached a new population peak which brought with it an associated covid pandemic, and global poverty and income disparity increases which threaten the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. During the last major influenza epidemic world population was 1.9 billion. It is now 7.8 billion+/. The establishment science "consensus" that a modelled future increase in CO2 levels and not this actual fourfold population increase is the main threat to human civilization is clearly untenableThe cost of the proposed rapid transition to non- fossil fuels would create an unnecessary, enormously expensive. obstacle in the way of the effort to attain a modern ecologically viable sustainable global economy.  We must adapt to the most likely future changes and build back smarter when losses occur.   

The effect on temperature of any further increase in CO2 is immeasurably small. There is no CO2 caused climate crisis. see :
