Global Carbon Tax Law is a Road to Ruin says FoSS in New Billboard Denouncing the Faulty Premises behind Climate Change Crisis Reports

A global carbon tax law is a road to ruin is the message of Friends of Science Society’s new billboard campaign, paired with a second message comparing the sun and earth asking “Is it you? Is it really CO2?” Friends of Science Society denounces the recent Fourth National Assessment and the IPCC SR15 climate change reports as irresponsible fearmongering based on faulty science and simulations.



Deloitte Insights and Climate Reality are Greenwashing the Public on Renewables and Climate Change

Deloitte Insights and Climate Reality are greenwashing the public on renewables and climate change says Friends of Science in a new report entitled “In the Dark on Renewables.” The claim that wind and solar or geothermal have reached price and performance parity with conventional coal or natural gas generation or that 100% renewable is possible is not supported by the math or evidence according to the Friends.



IPCC SR15 Climate Change Report is Based on Faulty Premises that Will Lead to Poor Public Policy

The IPCC SR15 climate change report is based on faulty premises that will lead to poor public policy, says Friends of Science Society, issuing a new rebuttal report. The SR15 mid-range 2030 proposals on carbon taxes of $880 per tonne CO2 would prevent an $8 per tonne CO2 benefit of emissions, giving a net loss of $888 per tonne CO2, wasted funds that could be better applied to adaptation and to real world issues citizens care about.



Carbon Tax and Paris Climate Change Targets Will Decimate Canadian Economy

Citizen’s Climate Lobby is cheering Prime Minister Trudeau’s carbon tax plan and efforts to meet the Paris Agreement climate change targets, but these will decimate the Canadian economy says Friends of Science Society. Citing the outcomes of similar policies in Europe and the UK, Friends of Science forecast an ‘industrial massacre,’ crushing debt for young adults, and that rapid decarbonization proposed by the IPCC will result in mass deaths, citing Cambridge professor Michael J. Kelly.



UN Climate Change SR15 Report Slammed as a Case of Goldilocks Thinking Without Cost-Benefit Analysis

The recent Summary Report (SR15) of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has been slammed as a case of Goldilocks thinking without any cost-benefit analysis or practical plan, says Friends of Science. Wall Street Journal is reporting Bjorn Lomborg's view that “new Nobel Laureate William Nordhaus says the costs of the proposed carbon dioxide cuts aren’t worth it” while NYTimes reports the IPCC calls for a global carbon tax of $135 to $5,500/ton.
