“CO2 is irrelevant.”
– Dr. Roger Higgs
“This 3-minute read makes it glaringly obvious that, unsurprisingly, climate change (including current global warming) is driven by our inconstant star, the Sun,” writes Dr Roger Higgs. “CO2 is irrelevant.”
“Naturally the United Nations IPCC claims the exact opposite, due to its grotesque in-built bias, i.e. ‘climate scientists’, a newly invented profession of opportunists whose careers DEPEND on public belief that perfectly natural, unthreatening global warming is man-made; see my https://www.researchgate.net/publication/331974185 .
“The IPCC (2013) says CO2 controls Earth’s climate and the Sun is irrelevant. This monumental blunder is costing western economies $$trillions in needless efforts to reduce harmless (hugely beneficial) CO2; see my https://www.researchgate.net/publication/341622566 .
WHO IS DR ROGER HIGGS?
Here’s his answer:
WHO AM I? A 66-years-old published independent geologist with a doctorate in geology (University of Oxford 1982-86) and 35 years’ worldwide geological consulting experience, I’m now in my 5th year of self-funded (hence impartial) literature research, integrating ALL scientific aspects of climate change, including geology, archaeology, oceanography, meteorology, glaciology, astrophysics and palaeoclimatology, as opposed to ‘climate science’ (mostly computer modelling, ‘Garbage in, garbage out’).
