Anti-climate change consensus: Italian scientists say global warming is not man-made

Leading Italian scientists published a letter with nearly 100 signatories refuting the supposed consensus on anthropogenic climate change.

A group of 83 renowned Italian scientists published a letter on January 11 assuring that scientific evidence shows that climate change and global warming exist, but it has no basis in human action, rather that significant temperature changes are natural processes.

In recent decades, it was found that the Earth’s surface has increased by approximately 0.9°C from 1850 to date, and it was hypothesized that this is abnormal and is due to human activities, particularly excessive emissions of CO2 from the use of fossil fuels.

This hypothesis has been dubbed the “scientific consensus” by specialized magazines and popularizers, but as this group of Italian scientists assures, there is far from having a consensus, and there is no concrete evidence to date that has proven this argument.

This thesis recently received the title of Anthropogenic Global Warming in academia and is actively promoted by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (PICC) of the United Nations, which ensures that environmental changes will generate catastrophes in the near future, making the planet uninhabitable.

This has led nations around the world to create ministries and massive budgets to introduce measures that forcefully reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

These measures have proven to be extremely harsh against economies, and have deepened crises around the world, the most recent cases being in Sri Lanka or the Netherlands.

However, the anthropogenic origin of global warming is an unproven conjecture, deduced only from certain climate models, that is, from complex computer programs that estimate certain patterns of how the Earth’s temperature should evolve, called general circulation models.

There are equally valid models that prove the opposite; that much of the Earth’s temperature rise is explained by natural, not human, phenomena.

To date, there is no evidence that allows choosing one model over the other, say the signing scientists.

“The anthropogenic responsibility for observed climate change in the last century is therefore grossly exaggerated and catastrophic forecasts are unrealistic,” they conclude.

NATURAL CLIMATE MODEL

Climate is the most complex system on Earth, so they must be addressed with appropriate methods that suit their level of complexity.

The climate simulation models promoted by the UN do not reproduce the natural variability of the climate and, in particular, do not reconstitute the warm periods of the last 10,000 years, which, according to the signatories, leads to significant errors.

When these parameters are added to the models, the warming is found to have recurred every thousand years.

For example, there is the medieval warm period, around the year 800, when the temperature was 2°C above the average temperature, at a time when there were no industrial processes that released polluting gases.

The same thing also happened during the warm Roman period, between 250 BC and 400 AD, when the temperature rose 0.6°C; the Minoan warm period, between 1,500 and 1,200 years BC, with a climatic anomaly of +1.2ºC.; and the so-called Climatic Holocene, 8,000 years ago.

These past periods were warmer than today, with the CO2 concentration lower than today; and no one denies the climatic phenomena behind him.

However, general circulation models fail to reproduce these cycles, so it is a mistake to use them to take measures with such a strong impact on people’s lives, according to the Italian scientists.

There is a lot of evidence indicating that current global warming is part of a warm cycle like the others, since the temperature anomalies began, in fact, in the 1700s, that is, at the minor point of the Little Ice Age, which is the coldest period in the last 10,000 years, and corresponds to a millennial minimum of solar activity that astrophysicists call the Maunder solar minimum.

Solar activity is also a crucial point that determines Earth’s warm or polar periods.

In fact, the “climate change consensus” models fail to reproduce the well-known climatic oscillations within this warm period that is being experienced.

There was a first sub-period of strong warming (1850-1880) followed by a cooling one (1880-1910), despite the fact that the Industrial Revolution broke out in between and the anthropological effect should have been determinative.

Subsequently, there was another warming sub-period (1910-1940), and another cooling sub-period (1940-70) and a new warming one (1970-2000), which seems to have stabilized, since the following years (2000-2021) did not see the increase predicted by the models, of approximately 0.2°C per decade, but a clear climatic stability interrupted sporadically by the rapid natural oscillations of the equatorial Pacific Ocean, called El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO), like the one that caused temporary warming in 2015 and 2016.

Thus, it is scientifically unrealistic to blame man for the observed warming from 1900 to the present, let alone the more general warming since the 1700s.

Alarmist predictions are therefore not credible, since they are based on models whose results are in contradiction with the observed data.
