Charles Darwin, Geoethics and the illusion of CO2-driven global warming

by Nils-Axel Mörner : Paleogeophysics & Geodynamics, Stockholm, Sweden.

Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519) insisted that we should first read the book of Mother Nature, and only subsequently read books written by man (see p. 144 and 175 in “Planetary Influence on the Sun and the Earth, and a Modern Book-Burning, Nova Sci. Publ., 2015). No one has read the book of Mother Nature better than our honorary president Charles Darwin.  Besides, his words of 1871: “false facts are highly injurious to the progress of science” can stand as a declaration for our new Independent Committee on Geoethics (founded on October 17, 2015, in Prague).

The Origin of Species by means of Natural Selection (Darwin, 1858) – i.e. his theory of a continual evolution of life throughout the Earth’s history – is proven correct by all means. We may even say that those who deny this (i.e. the “creationists”) do not represent science, progress and logics, but simple anti-scientific illusion (Fig. 1).

Similarly, those who insist that present climate changes are the function of CO2-driven global warming place themselves in the same shameful box of anti-science.

While the average of 49 AGW-model runs of the CMIP5 models used by the IPCC rises diagonally upwards from 1977 by around +1.0 °C in 2015 (i.e. today), the observational records remains fairly stable at about +0.2 °C today (Fig 2). This means a total mismatch between models and observations. In this position, is there on the whole any doubt what science must choose? – the observational facts, of course.

Like evolution, climate change is a natural process of our planetary environment.
