(Cancun, Mexico) At a press conference this afternoon at the Cancunmesse of COP 16, CFACT showcased three prominent experts leveling strong criticism of the current U.N. climate negotiations and its scientific underpinnings. “There is not now and never has been a scientific consensus supporting catastrophic man-made warming,” said CFACT president David Rothbard, “nor is consensus an appropriate scientific approach. Science must be grounded in such inconvenient approaches as fact, openness and verification.”

Marc Morano, founder of CFACT’s Climate Depot, released a 321-page report listing 1,000 + scientists who dissent over man-made global warming which he termed a “consensus buster.” Science is too important for our society to be misused in the way it has been done within the Climate Science Community,” Swedish climatologist Dr. Hans Jelbring is quoted as saying in Morano’s report. “I am ashamed of what climate science has become today. The science community is relying on an inadequate model to blame CO2 and innocent citizens for global warming in order to generate funding and to gain attention. If this is what ‘science’ has become today, I, as a scientist, am ashamed,” declared Research Chemist William C. Gilbert.

Dr. Roy Spencer, who co-founded NASA’s temperature satellite service, challenged a paper on cloud feedback released by Dr. Andrew Dessler in Science today. “Andy Dessler’s study will not stand hard scrutiny. COP16 delegates worried about the ongoing credibility problems of climate modeling will find no solace in Dessler’s work,” Spencer said. Spencer explained that prevailing climate models do not adequately account for feedbacks and are particularly weak in accounting for the effect of clouds which his research shows to produce negative feedback. Prevailing climate models are not adequate to reliably predict future climate, overstate warming trends, and should not be used as a basis in which to undertake severe action.

Lord Christopher Monckton discussed how the current climate treaty poses a threat to national sovereignty and individual freedom. He released a statement which provides a peek into the massive bureaucracy proposed by climate campaigners, a bureaucracy which no one expects to be effective at anything other than raking in funds and trying to impose its non-democratic will on sovereign nations.

On Wednesday, CFACT brought COP16 delegates and press to tour a local village without electricity to show the impacts
