Ecofiscal Carbon Tax Claims are Wrong

(CALGARY) Ecofiscal Commission is misleading the public with false information on carbon taxes, says Friends of Science. The recent Ecofiscal report “Bridging the Gap” falsely claims carbon taxes drive greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions, disproven by research in Norway which showed carbon taxes had only a miniscule 2% reduction effect. Likewise, Ecofiscal claims that regulations might need to be imposed to reach targets. According to “Canada’s Carbon Taxation: It’s Worse Than Thought,” a comprehensive report by former public servant and diplomat, Robert Lyman, Canada already has some 600 GHG regulations/incentives. These regulations are a tremendous burden on the economy which have never been audited for effectiveness.

Radio Canada’s “Décrypteurs” Climate Fail

(CALGARY) Friends of Science Society have issued a letter to Radio Canada condemning recent coverage of the CLINTEL “No Climate Emergency” declaration as poor and biased journalism. On Nov. 23, 2019, fact-checkers at Radio Canada’s “Décrypteurs” claim to have deconstructed the list of scientists who issued the Climate Intelligence - CLINTEL “No Climate Emergency” declaration to the UN. A larger group of CLINTEL signatories and expanded scientific explanation was presented on Nov. 20, 2019 to the European Parliament, as reported by the Global Warming Policy Foundation.

Humanicidal Climate Change Ideology Inappropriate for School Curricula

A study by Wynes and Nicholas (2019) on climate change in Canadian secondary school curricula is flawed, according to Friends of Science Society and their recommendations, which include pushing the humanicidal “have one less child to save the planet” and consensus thinking. Instead, a policy of ‘climate diversity’ should be instituted to encourage open, civil debate.

"Covering Climate Now" Misrepresents IPCC SR15 report as Climate Scientists Call for IPCC to Publicly Condemn Media Hysteria

“Covering Climate Now” involves some 60 media outlets worldwide, dedicated to pushing climate hysteria, says Friends of Science, condemning the fact that they misrepresent the IPCC SR15 report with ‘end-of-world’ hype. A Nature Climate Change commentary by scientists calling for the IPCC to calm the hysteria is ignored by major media who falsely claim to ‘foster constructive debate.’

Washington Post Op-ed and Greenpeace Claims Prove Alberta’s War Room is Necessary to fight Energy and Climate Disinfo

Recent op-eds in the Washington Post and Financial Post that misrepresent the foreign-funded Tar Sands Campaign and the facts about Alberta’s oil sands and climate change, prove the need for a “War Room” to counter disinformation, says Friends of Science. A new paper in Nature Climate Change calls on IPCC scientists to publicly refute climate catastrophe claims stemming from media hype surrounding the IPCC SR15 report. The scientific consensus has shifted to affirm that carbon dioxide is not the control knob on climate.
