Marijn Poels - Climate and Free Speech Documentaries Online Free of Charge

The Friends of Science will webcast the complete trilogy of climate change and freedom of speech documentaries by award-winning, independent European filmmaker Marijn Poels. This free-of-charge, exclusive screening will be available with English subtitles via its YouTube Channel from June to September 2020. Poels’ first film of the trilogy was his climate documentary – “The Uncertainty Has Settled” - produced three years ago. Poels was struck by the loss of agricultural productivity and freedoms in his own land. Europe’s green energy policies were driving more and more farmers into becoming energy suppliers through biofuels, wind, and solar farms, rather than food crops. The second film entitled “PARADOGMA” looks at the polarization in our Western society and the demonization of people who are skeptical of the IPCC's consensus view of climate change. The film explains why true liberty needs heretics. In the third part of the trilogy titled “Return to Eden” Poels visits inspiring people worldwide who adapt to the changing climate instead of regulating.



Climate of Fear – Conversations that Matter with Stuart McNish

Veteran journalist Stuart McNish continues his exploration of the strange phenomenon of being deemed a ‘heretic’ or ‘denier’ for questioning climate change dogma in his latest long-form interview “Climate of Fear”. McNish talks with Michelle Stirling, Communications Manager for Friends of Science Society, about the psychology behind the false 97% consensus claims and the “Big Green” money behind the environmental/climate change mass movements. McNish has interviewed a number of scientists in the field of climate science, ranging from Princeton University professor William Happer, to Greg Flato of Environment Canada. A new paper by Ken Gregory, P. Eng. of Friends of Science Society, entitled: “Climate Sensitivity by Energy Balance with Urban and Natural Warming” serves another blow to ‘consensus’ thinking. Gregory reports on recent papers showing the warming caused by greenhouse gases is only 35% of the warming estimated by climate models.



“Clean Green” Quebec will not Meet Climate Targets

Despite vast hydro reserves and a very good mass transit Metro system, the province of Quebec will not meet its climate targets, according to a new report “The Contradictions in Quebec Climate Policy”, says Friends of Science Society. The report has been issued in French and English with accompanying videos. Author of the report, Ottawa energy policy consultant Robert Lyman, was a federal public servant for 27 years and diplomat for 10 years. According to Lyman, there are major contradictions in Quebec’s policy that will make their extreme greenhouse gas reduction targets extremely difficult to meet. Quebec is one of the world’s lowest emitting jurisdiction. Even so, Quebec has adopted the most stringent climate policies of any Canadian province.



Hayhoe Alberta Climate Report Misleading and Inaccurate

(Calgary, Alberta) A new report entitled “Facts vs Fortune Telling” deconstructs ‘alarming’ claims of the “Alberta’s Climate Future” report which was written by noted climate scientist Katharine Hayhoe and colleague Anne Stoner. In an open letter to Premier Jason Kenney and the Hon. Jason Nixon, Minister of Environment and Parks, Friends of Science Society advises Alberta’s government to reject the Hayhoe report as misleading and inaccurate. The Friends of Science team reviewed the longest-term temperature records in the province and found there is little evidence to support any of the claims in the Hayhoe & Stoner report. Hayhoe & Stoner only used data from 1950 to 2013 which gives a falsely exaggerated rising temperature trend.



CLINTEL calls on Guterres to Halt Green Energy Push and Open Climate Debate

(Calgary, Alberta) Friends of Science Society reports that CLINTEL, the international climate intelligence organization of over 800 scientists, scholars and professionals, has sent a registered letter to UN Sec. Gen. Antonio Guterres advising him to halt the push for green energy and open up the climate debate. The letter is in response to Guterres’ presentation in the Petersburg Virtual Dialogue. Guterres laid out six points in his presentation that Friends of Science Society says are completely contradictory. Though Guterres called for investment in green jobs as a means of economic recovery, studies show that 2.2 conventional jobs are lost for every green job. Likewise, he calls for governments not to bail out polluting industries. Most ‘green’ energy devices are highly polluting. Much of so-called ‘clean-tech’ requires rare earth minerals, leaving behind a toxic environment in developing nations. Wind turbine blades are being buried in land fills as they cannot be recycled. Solar panels are filled with toxic materials and can only be recycled with great difficulty and much energy demand. As reported by energy expert and author, Prof. Emeritus Vaclav Smil, “To Get Wind, You Need Oil”.
