An Open Letter To The Geological Society

How much longer can the erroneous fixed ideas of IPCC-based climate science last against the forces (see signatory list) of reason and rationality?


By Paul Homewood

GWPF carry the story of a letter recently sent to the president of the Geological Society by a group of concerned current and former members:


The President
Geological Society of London

Dear President

We are writing as a group of concerned primarily geoscientists, half of whom are or were Fellows, (names and affiliations listed below). Our concern is that the Society’s position on Climate Change (aka Anthropogenic Global Warming or AGW), is outdated and one-sided, and is distracting attention and funding from real issues of pollution such as plastic and other noxious industrial and domestic waste. To address this, we proposed to Colin Summerhayes that the 2010 and 2013 GSL Position Papers be posted on the Energy Matters blog, so that all sides of the discussion could be aired; and we are very grateful to Colin for effecting and taking part in this ( In…

    Not going to have any effect, though, is it?

    They will just say that while any individual item which is challenged may be wrong, there are ‘many more’ lines of evidence which show that AGW is true.

    Asked to name them they will handwave, and say that anyone rocking the boat is a ‘denier’, and therefore should not be listened to…

    How can geologists who know the history of Earth and its many cycles and transformations be content to be tools of marxists and/or OneWorlders who are using AGW-Global Warming to gain tyrannical control over all current societies. Geologists should be the first to call out the fraudsters.

    I commented on one of my favorite geologist’s blog about the physics of CO2 (no possibility for this kind of GW given the data) and the evidence of Earth’s changes, especially those of cycling in the Holocene.

    I was barred from commenting. Something is rotten, not only in Denmark, but in the U.S. Geological Society and with too many geologists.

    We need integrity and adherence to the scientific method from our scientists, or they should be fired from their jobs.

    Thank you Tallbloke, Oldbrew and many others for a magnificent blog. I read your efforts every day.

    [reply] all support appreciated, thanks. Apols for moderation delays

    Have you read the 2 posts at Energy Matters?
    Most of those “other lines of evidence” were soundly debunked during those discussions.
    Which may be the main reason for the letter.

    “The Society is the UK’s professional body for Earth science and has a worldwide membership of about 12,500. More than 2,000 of its members live overseas and over 2,500 are Chartered Geologists or Chartered Scientists – professionals who have demonstrated a high level of education, professional competence in their field and a commitment to professional ethics.”.

    12500 members 33 members signed that’s – 0.3%
    12500 members 69 members and concerned colleagues signed – that’s 0.5%

    Assuming all members are somewhere chartered then that works out at 1% signe out of 2500

    Seems to prove the 97% consensus to me

    Proper science is not consensus-driven.

    Counting the entire group of members that didn’t sign as fully agreeing with the narrative are you? Perhaps the ones that did sign are the only ones bold enough to make a public statement. I don’t know of many companies whose employees are fully on board with all of the stances taken by the leadership, and I doubt many of those employees would band together to put out a written letter in public protest. Not a wise career move. Remaining silent does not confirm agreement or disagreement on the matter.

    Wonder when the luddites will start their shenanigans?
