The speech by Patrick Moore PhD, GLOBAL WARMING POLICY FOUNDATION OCTOBER 30, 2015 is presented as a counter to the non-scientific dogma regarding reducing CO2 levels. Delivered by Patrick Moore, formerly President of Greenpeace Int’l, to the Institution of Mechanical Engineers in London. He is a vocal critic of faulty science that supports climate-change caused by humans. Since he was a legend in the eco-movement, his current assessment is credible and authoritative.
Should We Celebrate Carbon Dioxide?
My Lords and Ladies, Ladies and Gentlemen. Thank you for the opportunity to set out my views on climate change. As I have stated publicly on many occasions, there is no definitive scientific proof, through real-world observation, that carbon dioxide is responsible for any of the slight warming of the global climate that has occurred during the past 300 years, since the peak of the Little Ice Age. If there were such a proof through testing and replication it would have been written down for all to see.
The contention that human emissions are now the dominant influence on climate is simply a hypothesis, rather than a universally accepted scientific theory. It is therefore correct, indeed verging on compulsory in the scientific tradition, to be sceptical of those who express certainty that “the science is settled” and “the debate is over”.
But there is certainty beyond any doubt that CO2 is the building block for all life on Earth and that without its presence in the global atmosphere at a sufficient concentration this would be a dead planet.

Hi, When I first formed Sun Earth Energy Limited in October 2009, I also established the domain name and a separate blog via the then ''Blogger'' system. That Blog is still going! With articles, views and opinions covering many aspects of energy usage, production, conservation and system efficiencies. Check it out on http://sun-earth-energy.blogspot.com
There is also my other website with Watersons Management Group which looks at financing renewable and other infrastructure projects
