London, 6 Sep 2019: The General-Secretary of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) says that the alarmist narrative on climate change has gone off the rails and criticised the news media for provoking unjustified anxiety.

Speaking to Finland’s financial newspaper Talouselämä (“The Journal”) on 6 September 2019, Petteri Taalas called for cooler heads to prevail, saying that he does not accept arguments of climate alarmists that the end of the world is at hand.

Dr Taalas also spoke of the dangers of green extremism:

“While climate sceptisism has become less of an issue, now we are being challenged from the other side. Climate experts have been attacked by these people and they claim that we should be much more radical. They are doomsters and extremists; they make threats.”

And he called for the media both to challenge experts and allow a broader range of opinions to be heard.

The director of the Global Warming Policy Forum, Dr Benny Peiser, welcomed Dr Taalas’s intervention:

“It’s very welcome to hear the Secretary-General of the World Meteorological Organization finally challenging eco-zealots.

“I hope mainstream climate scientists and the news media sit up and take notice; it’s high time they put some professional distance between themselves and radical greens and start to question their apocalyptic narrative of doom.”

  1. I sense they know the end it near for their scam. Look for more back pedalling.

    With Dr Frank’s paper finally published, Dr Ridd’s and Dr Ball’s victories the tide is going to drown CAGW.

  2. Yes it a good sign amongst the extremist views that plug the MSM daily diatribe on the (fake) ‘climate emergency’.

  3. One can better name it ‘green communisme’ as climate is used as a mean to show citizens that governments are ruling the world and not multi-nationals. That’s why multi-nationals like car-industry were punished with very big fines on their ‘cheat’ with ‘CO2 hardware/software’. Maybe there was something wrong but no one gave examples, and especially, politicians were avoiding giving examples and explanantions but only suggestions. Now it is nitrogen that is used as a mean to force even judges to judge about how many nitrogen nature can have.

  4. An extreme reflection of how some seemingly Evil ones go, has been evidenced by, e.g., a known news journalist who wrote: “Global Warming Denial is now on a par with Holocaust Denial.” .. https://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2007/02/on_comparing_global_warming_de.html … ..

    AS IF that wasn’t bad enough, a professor argued: ” Global Warming Denial is worse than Holocaust Denial! https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/climate-change-denial-worse-than-holocaust-denial

    Moving right along, and Worse, another pushed for Punishment: either Jail or Execution for Global Warming Deniers! https://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2015/04/punishing_climate_change_deniers.html

    And Worse? Another called for extermination of Global Warming Deniers..

  5. Hopefully the media will take note of this and actually start doing their job as news investigators for the ‘Truth’ and not what some politician wants.

  6. And finally, as extremism is failing to motivate, comes the call to moderation and the appeal to make the pleas more genuine sounding rather than absurd. Their using “weather events” as climate examples is backfiring since weather is dong what weather does – being unpredictable in the medium run. They now want to make “climate” not a reflection of the current weather since the current weather isn’t meeting their needs, no matter how hard they massage the numbers, but go back to being that “disaster in waiting, out there” in the future.

  7. Nice to read about a credentialed individual/organization speaking up about the nonsense that is being spewed by our so called “leaders”.
