Top Physicist Freeman Dyson: Obama Has Picked The ‘Wrong Side’ On Climate Change

by James Delingpole
13 Oct 2015

The climate models used by alarmist scientists to predict global warming are getting worse, not better; carbon dioxide does far more good than harm; and President Obama has backed the “wrong side” in the war on “climate change.”

So says one of the world’s greatest theoretical physicists, Dr Freeman Dyson (pictured above), the British-born, naturalised American citizen who worked at Princeton University as a contemporary of Einstein and has advised the US government on a wide range of scientific and technical issues.

In an interview with Andrew Orlowski of The Register, Dyson expressed his despair at the current scientific obsession with climate change which he says is “not a scientific mystery but a human mystery. How does it happen that a whole generation of scientific experts is blind to the obvious facts.”

This mystery, says Dyson, can only partly be explained in terms of follow the money. Also to blame, he believes, is a kind of collective yearning for apocalyptic doom.

It is true that there’s a large community of people who make their money by scaring the public, so money is certainly involved to some extent, but I don’t think that’s the full explanation.

It’s like a hundred years ago, before World War I, there was this insane craving for doom, which in a way, helped cause World War I. People like the poet Rupert Brooke were glorifying war as an escape from the dullness of modern life. [There was] the feeling we’d gone soft and degenerate, and war would be good for us all. That was in the air leading up to World War I, and in some ways it’s in the air today.


Dyson, himself a longstanding Democrat voter, is especially disappointed by his chosen party’s unscientific stance on the climate change issue.

It’s very sad that in this country, political opinion parted [people’s views on climate change]. I’m 100 per cent Democrat myself, and I like Obama. But he took the wrong side on this issue, and the Republicans took the right side.


Part of the problem, he says, is the Democrats’ conflation of “pollution” (a genuine problem) with “climate change” (a natural phenomenon quite beyond mankind’s ability to control).

China and India rely on coal to keep growing, so they’ll clearly be burning coal in huge amounts. They need that to get rich. Whatever the rest of the world agrees to, China and India will continue to burn coal, so the discussion is quite pointless.

At the same time, coal is very unpleasant stuff, and there are problems with coal quite apart from climate. I remember in England when we burned coal, everything was filthy. It was really bad, and that’s the way it is now in China, but you can clean that up as we did in England. It takes a certain amount of political willpower, and that takes time. Pollution is quite separate to the climate problem: one can be solved, and the other cannot, and the public doesn’t understand that.


The short-to-medium term solution to the pollution problem, he argues, is the replacement of coal with much-maligned shale gas, whose rejection by much of Europe he finds unfathomable and counter-productive.

As far as the next 50 years are concerned, there are two main forces of energy, which are coal and shale gas. Emissions have been going down in the US while they’ve going up in Europe, and that’s because of shale gas. It’s only half the carbon dioxide emissions of coal. China may in fact be able to develop shale gas on a big scale and that means they burn a lot less coal.

It seems complete madness to prohibit shale gas. You wondered if climate change is an Anglophone preoccupation. Well, France is even more dogmatic than Britain about shale gas!


Dyson, 91, has enjoyed a long, distinguished career as a physicist, mathematician and public intellectual, showing promise as early as the age of five when he calculated the number of atoms in the sun. During World War II, he worked at the Operation Research Section of the Royal Air Force’s Bomber Command, before moving to the US where Robert Oppenheimer awarded him a permanent post at the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton. He also worked at Oak Ridge National Laboratory, looking at the climate system 25 years ago, before it became a hot political issue.

The dangers of carbon dioxide, he believes, have been much overrated. In a foreword to a report for The Global Warming Policy Foundation by Indur Goklany called Carbon Dioxide: The Good News, – as reported here at Breitbart – he says:

To any unprejudiced person reading this account, the facts should be obvious: that the non-climatic effects of carbon dioxide as a sustainer of wildlife and crop plants are enormously beneficial, that the possibly harmful climatic effects of carbon dioxide have been greatly exaggerated, and that the benefits clearly outweigh the possible damage.

I consider myself an unprejudiced person and to me these facts are obvious. But the same facts are not obvious to the majority of scientists and politicians who consider carbon dioxide to be evil and dangerous. The people who are supposed to be experts and who claim to understand the science are precisely the people who are blind to the evidence.


He likens the “climate change” issue to some of the other “irrational beliefs” promoted through history “by famous thinkers and adopted by loyal disciples.”

Sometimes, as in the use of bleeding as a treatment for various diseases, irrational belief did harm to a large number of human victims. George Washington was one of the victims. Other irrational beliefs, such as the phlogiston theory of burning or the Aristotelian cosmology of circular celestial motions, only did harm by delaying the careful examination of nature. In all these cases, we see a community of people happily united in a false belief that brought leaders and followers together. Anyone who questioned the prevailing belief would upset the peace of the community.


Dyson’s refusal ever to accommodate himself with the modish notions of the hour may explain why, unlike some of his less distinguished and brilliant contemporaries over the years, he has never been awarded a Nobel Prize.

He concludes:

“I am hoping that the scientists and politicians who have been blindly demonizing carbon dioxide for 37 years will one day open their eyes and look at the evidence.”

France's top weatherman sparks storm over book questioning climate change
Philippe Verdier, weather chief at France Télévisions, the country's state broadcaster, reportedly sent on "forced holiday" for releasing book accusing top climatologists of "taking the world hostage"

By Henry Samuel, Paris
5:45PM BST 14 Oct 2015

Every night, France's chief weatherman has told the nation how much wind, sun or rain they can expect the following day.

Now Philippe Verdier, a household name for his nightly forecasts on France 2, has been taken off air after a more controversial announcement - criticising the world's top climate change experts.

Mr Verdier claims in the book Climat Investigation (Climate Investigation) that leading climatologists and political leaders have “taken the world hostage” with misleading data.

In a promotional video, Mr Verdier said: “Every night I address five million French people to talk to you about the wind, the clouds and the sun. And yet there is something important, very important that I haven’t been able to tell you, because it’s neither the time nor the place to do so.”

He added: “We are hostage to a planetary scandal over climate change – a war machine whose aim is to keep us in fear.”

His outspoken views led France 2 to take him off the air starting this Monday. "I received a letter telling me not to come. I'm in shock," he told RTL radio. "This is a direct extension of what I say in my book, namely that any contrary views must be eliminated."

The book has been released at a particularly sensitive moment as Paris is due to host a crucial UN climate change conference in December.

According to Mr Verdier, top climate scientists, who often rely on state funding, have been “manipulated and politicised”.

He specifically challenges the work of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, or IPCC, saying they “blatantly erased” data that went against their overall conclusions, and casts doubt on the accuracy of their climate models.

The IPCC has said that temperatures could rise by up to 4.8°C if no action is taken to reduce carbon emissions.

Mr Verdier writes: “We are undoubtedly on a plateau in terms of warming and the cyclical variability of the climate doesn’t not allow us to envisage if the natural rhythm will tomorrow lead us towards a fall, a stagnation or a rise (in temperature).”

The 330-page book also controversially contains a chapter on the “positive results” of climate change in France, one of the countries predicted to be the least affected by rising temperatures. “It’s politically incorrect and taboo to vaunt the merits of climate change because there are some,” he writes, citing warmer weather attracting tourists, lower death rates and electricity bills in mild winters, and better wine and champagne vintages.

Asked whether he had permission from his employer to release the book, he said: “I don’t think management liked it, let’s be honest.”

"I put myself via this investigation on the path of COP 21, which is a bulldozer, and we can see the results."

The book was criticised by French newspaper Le Monde as full of “errors”. “The models used to predict the average rise in temperatures on the surface of the globe have proved to be rather reliable, with the gap between observations and predictions quite small,” it countered.

Mr Verdier told France 5: “Making these revelations in the book, which I absolutely have the right to do, can pose problems for my employer given that the government (which funds France 2) is organising COP [the climate change conference]. In fact as soon as you a slightly different discourse on this subject, you are branded a climate sceptic.”

He said he decided to write the book in June 2014 when Laurent Fabius, the French foreign minister, summoned the country’s main weather presenters and urged them to mention “climate chaos” in their forecasts.

“I was horrified by this discourse,” Mr Verdier told Les Inrockuptibles magazine. Eight days later, Mr Fabius appeared on the front cover of a magazine posing as a weatherman above the headline: “500 days to save the planet.”

Mr Verdier said: “If a minister decides he is Mr Weatherman, then Mr Weatherman can also express himself on the subject in a lucid manner.

“What’s shameful is this pressure placed on us to say that if we don’t hurry, it’ll be the apocalypse,” he added, saying that “climate diplomacy” means leaders are seeking to force changes to suit their own political timetables.

According to L’Express magazine, unions at France Television called for Mr Verdier to be fired, but that Delphine Ernotte, the broadcaster’s chief executive, initially said he should be allowed to stay “in the name of freedom of expression”.

Mathematicians, Legendary Physicist, IPCC Expert Throw Wrenches Into UN Climate Summit
Written by William F. Jasper

...[T]he prestigious Société de Calcul Mathématique (Society for Mathematical Calculation), which recently issued a detailed 195-page White Paper that presents a blistering point-by-point critique of the key dogmas of the global warming? The Société de Calcul Mathématique (SCM) study, entitled, “The battle against global warming: an absurd, costly and pointless crusade,” relentlessly exposes the flaws in the so-called science of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and other institutional members of the AGW alarmist choir. The SCM, founded by renowned mathematician and professor Bernard Beauzamy, does mathematical modeling for companies and governments (including the French government), as well as providing “mathematical tools for fraud detection.” The SCM white paper also exposes the devastating economic, social, and environmental costs of continued implementation of the alarmist agenda, referring to it as a “mad obsession.”...

...Here are extracts from the opening statements of the first three chapters of the SCM White Paper:

Chapter 1: The crusade is absurd
There is not a single fact, figure or observation that leads us to conclude that the world‘s climate is in any way ‘disturbed.' It is variable, as it has always been, but rather less so now than during certain periods or geological eras. Modern methods are far from being able to accurately measure the planet‘s global temperature even today, so measurements made 50 or 100 years ago are even less reliable. Concentrations of CO2 vary, as they always have done; the figures that are being released are biased and dishonest. Rising sea levels are a normal phenomenon linked to upthrust buoyancy; they are nothing to do with so-called global warming. As for extreme weather events — they are no more frequent now than they have been in the past. We ourselves have processed the raw data on hurricanes….

Chapter 2: The crusade is costly
Direct aid for industries that are completely unviable (such as photovoltaics and wind turbines) but presented as ‘virtuous' runs into billions of euros, according to recent reports published by the Cour des Comptes (French Audit Office) in 2013. But the highest cost lies in the principle of ‘energy saving,' which is presented as especially virtuous. Since no civilization can develop when it is saving energy, ours has stopped developing: France now has more than three million people unemployed — it is the price we have to pay for our virtue….

Chapter 3: The crusade is pointless
Human beings cannot, in any event, change the climate. If we in France were to stop all industrial activity (let's not talk about our intellectual activity, which ceased long ago), if we were to eradicate all trace of animal life, the composition of the atmosphere would not alter in any measurable, perceptible way. To explain this, let us make a comparison with the rotation of the planet: it is slowing down. To address that, we might be tempted to ask the entire population of China to run in an easterly direction. But, no matter how big China and its population are, this would have no measurable impact on the Earth‘s rotation....

Global Warming Hoax Spiraling Into Radical Tyrannical Beast
Bernie Suarez
November 7, 2015

With the United Nations conference on climate change just around the corner, scheduled in Paris November 30 to December 11, the climate change delusional propaganda is being ratcheted up to historic levels. We are now hearing things which under normal circumstances would be considered downright crazy talk. There is something about delusions and insanity – if you put enough lunatics in a room together, they all seem normal in comparison to each other.

Unfortunately for the global warming alarmists who are completely immune to logic and reason or any natural laws of science, the atmosphere, sunlight or any other laws of nature that interferes with their personal tyrannical global government agenda, not everyone is indulging in this heavily funded blind climate change lunacy dogma that is seemingly sweeping the globe leading up the U.N. conference in Paris.

In fact, the kind of radical talk we’re hearing from those who are pushing the carbon tax agenda is so loud and scary that up to 130 countries are threatening not to sign the climate agreement in Paris unless it gives them specific wealth they are looking for to improve their own countries. Hopefully this resistance is an early sign of things to come. Hopefully nations and people around the world will eventually see all of the global climate talk for what it is – a global taxation scheme to fund the global government forever so they can complete their imagined goals of stripping sovereign nations and individuals of their rights. This process is already underway.

Meanwhile, as we approach the upcoming U.N. climate conference in Paris the runaway train of lunacy surrounding the global warming hoax turned climate change has not only risen from the dead but is now growing horns and sharp fangs and it’s looking to attack. The global warming beast is alive but in a Frankenstein kind of way. It’s an experiment (on humanity), it’s engineered, it’s artificial and “it’s alive” again.

The Monetization of All Human Activity

Hiding under the blanket of the fast-moving U.N. climate change agenda is a slow unveiling of a blueprint to monetize, through taxation, literally every form of human activity. This is evident by a recent seven-point plan revealed by two Canadian think tanks that states exactly what is needed:

broader changes to our economy beyond carbon pricing


This is a clear indicator that taxing everyone on the planet and thus funding the global government won’t be enough. Behavior control is what they are getting at. Keep in mind these discussions are being taken very seriously by the cooperating nations. In fact many pre-Paris conference huddles discussing points of contention are taking place as the globalists are stating what they claim to be the facts behind global warming. These points of contention include mitigation, fairness and money. So we’re talking about a global money casino charade which will make billions of dollars for the global government. Their first contention of mitigation states that – “all countries agree that greenhouse-gas emission which drive global warming must be curbed.” The point of contention is – “but by how much?”

Let this shocking first contention sink in. The declaration that CO2 causes global warming is blindly accepted as gospel never to be questioned. Based on this blind dogmatic blatant lie, which has been proven wrong over and over again, we now face a catastrophic metastasizing tyrannical global government takeover of humanity, and left-brain, left-wing progressive, climate changers are blindly rolling right along with this takeover of humanity just as planned many decades ago by the Club of Rome and the Committee of 300 who laid down the groundwork for this deceptive movement.

Climate Justice Tribunal Coming Soon

As if the recent coordinated ambush of humanity isn’t enough “negotiators” at the recent U.N. Climate talks in Bonn Germany resurrected the issue of having an “International Tribunal of Climate Justice” inserted into the agreement they are preparing for the Paris conference. This tribunal will allow nations to judge other nations for not cooperating with the climate agenda. Here’s a section of the text:

[An International Tribunal of Climate Justice as][A] [compliance mechanism] is hereby established to address cases of non-compliance of the commitments of developed country Parties on mitigation, adaptation, [provision of] finance, technology development and transfer [and][,] capacity-building[,] and transparency of action and support, including through the development of an indicative list of consequences, taking into account the cause, type, degree and frequency of non-compliance.


With the global community blindly moving forward with ideas for climate tribunals to vote on whether to punish sovereign nations (like the U.S.) thereby undermining national (and individual) sovereignty in the name of the global warming hoax, it’s time to get angry and start fighting back. It’s time for the scientific community to strangle this diabolical and phony climate movement that now threatens all sovereignty globally in the name of the global warming hoax which specifically blames CO2 for the warming of the planet and ignores the proven and obvious effect and role the sun plays in warming the planet. Both of these assertions (CO2 as the cause and the claim that the planet is warming uncontrollably) have been factually proven to be lies and ignore many facts about the atmosphere including the insignificant role played by CO2 and the enormous impact made by water vapor. It also ignores that over and over again NASA studies show that we have a net gain in arctic ice globally, that sea levels have risen but only slowly and that global warming has not occurred as expected over the past 14 years as reported by IPCC themselves in 2013.

What is true in all of this is the we all want (who doesn’t?) a clean planet and we should strive for a clean planet. However, that goal has nothing to do with CO2 (a necessary nutrient of the earth necessary for life!) emissions but instead with stopping the dangerous chemtrails spraying program which is releasing proven toxic metals into the atmosphere and destroying the planet and poisoning humanity. Hundreds of patents exist in the hands of the U.S. military and its contractors to prove these crimes and issue arrest warrants. So, yes, decreasing pollution is always a good thing, but it pales in comparison to the damage already done on the planet and continuing to be done at the hands of the global daily observed geoengineering which is the greatest crime ever perpetrated against humanity.

And speaking of geoengineering, as if this recent climate global taxation and tyranny agenda could not get any worse, author Oliver Morton has just written a book selling geoengineering as THE solution for climate change. The globalists failed to roll out geoengineering to the general public in 2013 thanks in part to alternative media exposing this effort, but that won’t stop them this time. Let’s keep an eye on this strategy to use global warming and climate change as an excuse to fool the general public into thinking that a “new” geoengineering spraying program will be the necessary “solution” for the good of the planet. We’ve all heard this song before.

Let’s stay calm, stay focused and not be fooled by the cascade of global government climate propaganda. Notice to the U.N. and all traitor politicians. You may have the left-brained, left wing “progressive” liberal crowd rooting for climate change and blindly accepting these global government measures to undermine national and individual sovereignty in the name of the global warming hoax, but the rest of humanity will stand for truth and freedom with regard to this issue. We will resist your lies and deception. Non-IPCC and non-government funded independent scientists all over the world must stand together against this global tyranny. Let us not allow them to take away our precious freedom and sovereignty as a nation. Let’s make sure they fail at both implementing their plans and at any attempts to punish our nation or the individual people for not complying with their phony made-up rules. We will refuse and not obey. It is up to everyone to share this information before it’s too late because you never quite appreciate something like freedom until it’s taken away.

ICE AGE TERROR: Decade-long winter to freeze Earth as sun 'sleeps'
EARTH could freeze over in a decade-long ice age as solar activity suffers a staggering 60 per cent drop.
By Michael Havis / Published 5th November 2015

And the big chill will hit in our lifetimes, with boffins forecasting it will plunge the earth into subzero temperatures from 2030.

The prediction was made by scientists who created a new model which predicts irregularities within the sun's 11-year cycle or "heartbeat".

Because each cycle differs, what the result will be on Earth has never been fully explained – until now.

What it predicts is that we will suffer a mini ice age the likes of which have not been witnessed in centuries.

The last one humanity faced in 1645, known as the Maunder minimum, was so severe that the Thames Froze and 'frost fairs' were held on it.

Professor Valentina Zharkova believes her team's predictions are 97% accurate because of the way they chart the sun's behaviour.

Observing how different parts of the sun work together, they believe they have found a super accurate "double dynamo" model.

The professor said: “We found magnetic wave components appearing in pairs, originating in two different layers in the Sun’s interior.

"They both have a frequency of approximately 11 years, although this frequency is slightly different, and they are offset in time.

"Over the cycle, the waves fluctuate between the northern and southern hemispheres of the Sun.

"Combining both waves together and comparing to real data for the current solar cycle, we found that our predictions showed an accuracy of 97%."

The two waves will grow apart when the next solar cycle which peaks in 2022, before going completely out of synch during the 2030s.

Zharkova said: “The two waves will exactly mirror each other – peaking at the same time but in opposite hemispheres of the Sun.

"Their interaction will be disruptive, or they will nearly cancel each other. We predict that this will lead to the properties of a Maunder minimum”

"When waves are out of phase, we have solar minimums. When there is full phase separation, we have the conditions last seen 370 years ago.”

Global warming 'is FAKE': Volume of ice caps is INCREASING, claims top geologist
THE WORLD is not heating up, some areas are actually getting colder and the volume of polar ice caps is INCREASING in some places, a leading geologist has claimed.
By Jon Austin PUBLISHED: 04:51, Wed, Oct 7, 2015 | UPDATED: 08:26, Wed, Oct 7, 2015

James Kamis suggests "conflicting temperature trends" between oceans and the Earth's atmosphere could dispel the "myth" of man-made global warming.

Put simply, he says our atmospheric temperature has remained static for more than 18 years, the Atlantic has got colder, and it is only the Pacific Ocean where things have heated up.

Mr Kamis said: "Scientists from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), and many universities are at a loss to explain recent conflicting temperature trends from Earth’s oceans and atmosphere."

"It can be boiled down to this: temperatures of the Earth’s three big fluid systems are each trending in different directions. The temperature of the Pacific Ocean is rising, the temperature of the atmosphere has remained constant, and the temperature of the Atlantic Ocean is cooling."

He said the temperature variances do not fit previous climate model predictions.

He added: "Climate scientists favoring the theory of man-made global warming are flooding the media with new, and this time supposedly very reliable, explanations that are generated from their latest super-computer climate models."

Opposing scientists claim global warming has melted the Greenland ice cap at an alarming rate to the point that freshly melted ice flowing into the Atlantic is lowering the seawater temperature there.

However, Mr Kamistol said that with no significant atmospheric temperature change in 18.7 years, global warming is not likely to be the cause of the melting.

Mr Kamis is a former employee of BTA Oil Producers, based in Midland, Texas, a private firm which has been active in oil and natural gas exploration, development and production for 50 years. He has also been a long-standing member of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists, so his impartiality on the subject of whether man's use of fossil fuels has led to global warming is open to question.

But he claims the facts speak for themselves.

He added: "The entire Atlantic Ocean is cooling, and not just in the northern portion of the Atlantic that is adjacent to Greenland.

"This strongly suggests that outflow of summertime Greenland ice cap melt water into the northern portion of the Atlantic Ocean is not the primary driving force behind cooling the entire Atlantic Ocean.

"Recent research from NASA’s Operation Ice Bridge clearly shows that Greenland's ice mass loss is only occurring in areas immediately adjacent to the ocean.

"This perimeter-based ice loss is greatest in areas where the ice cap overlays known deep geological fault zones that are emitting geothermal heat onto the base of the ice cap.

"The interior portions of the Greenland Ice Cap are in ice mass balance.

"The extent of Arctic Ocean sea ice has increased the last three years, and not decreased as predicted.

"The Antarctic Ice Cap extent has increased steadily for thirty five years, and not decreased as predicted."

He believes melting of the Greenland Ice cap to be caused by heat from ancient volcanic eruptions and geothermal heat flow from below the surface.

He tols Climate Change Dispatch: "Many noted and well-intentioned climate scientists and universities are now starting to publicly admit that overwhelming amounts of new research indicates that the theory of man-made global warming does not properly explain many observed climate trends.

"Reason dictates that a more balanced approach to studying climate trends is needed."

But other experts disagreed. Michael Mann, a climate scientist of Pennsylvania State University, said: "We may see warming even faster than what the models are predicting."

And Michael England, a professor at the University of New South Wales in Australia, said global temperature has steadily climbed by 1.4 F since 1880.
