Net Zero Will Lead To The End Of Modern Civilisation, Says Top Scientist
Authored by Chris Morrison via DailySceptic.org,
A damning indictment of the Net Zero political project has been made
by one of the world’s leading nuclear physicists.
In a recently published science paper, Dr. Wallace Manheimer said it
would be the end of modern civilisation. Writing about wind and solar
power he argued it would be especially tragic “when not only will this
new infrastructure fail, but will cost trillions, trash large portions
of the environment, and be entirely unnecessary”. The stakes, he
added, “are enormous”.
Dr. Manheimer holds a physics PhD from MIT and has had a 50-year
career in nuclear research, including work at the Plasma Physics
Division at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory. He has published over
150 science papers. In his view, there is “certainly no scientific
basis” for expecting a climate crisis from too much carbon dioxide in
the atmosphere in the next century or so. He argues that there is no
reason why civilisation cannot advance using both fossil fuel power
and nuclear power, gradually shifting to more nuclear power.
There is of course a growing body of opinion that points out that the
Emperor has no clothes when it comes to all the fashionable green
technologies. Electric cars, wind and solar power, hydrogen, battery
storage, heat pumps – all have massive disadvantages, and are
incapable of replacing existing systems without devastating
Manheimer points out that before fossil fuel became widely used,
energy was provided by people and animals. Because so little energy
was produced, “civilisation was a thin veneer atop a vast mountain of
human squalor and misery, a veneer maintained by such institutions as
slavery, colonialism and tyranny”.
This argument hints at why so many rich, virtue-signalling celebrities
argue not just for Net Zero but ‘Real’ Zero, with the banning of all
fossil fuel use. King Charles said in 2009 that the age of consumerism
and convenience was over, although the multi-mansion owning monarch
presumably doesn’t think such desperate restrictions apply to himself.
Manheimer notes that fossil fuel has extended the benefits of
civilisation to billions, but its job is not yet complete. “To spread
the benefits of modern civilisation to the entire human family would
require much more energy, as well as newer sources,” he adds.
The author notes that the emphasis on a false climate crisis is
becoming a “tragedy for modern civilisation”, which depends on
reliable, affordable and environmentally viable energy. “The
windmills, solar panels and backup batteries have none of these
qualities,” he states. This falsehood has been pushed by what has been
termed a climate industrial complex, comprising some scientists, most
media, industrialists and legislators. Furthermore, he continues, this
grouping has “somehow” managed to convince many that CO2 in the
atmosphere, a gas necessary for life on Earth, one which we exhale
with every breath, is an environmental poison.
In Manheimer’s view, the partnership among self-interested businesses,
grandstanding politicians and alarmist campaigners, “truly is an
unholy alliance”. The climate industrial complex does not promote
discussion on how to overcome this challenge in a way that will be
best for everyone. “We should not be surprised or impressed that those
who stand to make a profit are among the loudest calling for
politicians to act,” he added.
Perhaps one of the best voices to cast doubt on an approaching climate
crisis, suggests the author, is Professor Emeritus Richard Lindzen of
MIT, one of the world’s leading authorities on geological fluid
What historians will definitely wonder about in future centuries
is how deeply flawed logic, obscured by shrewd and unrelenting
propaganda, actually enabled a coalition of powerful special interests
to convince nearly everyone in the world that CO2 from human industry
was a dangerous planet-destroying toxin. It will be remembered as the
greatest mass delusion in the history of the world – that CO2, the
life of plants, was considered for a time to be a deadly poison.
Much of Dr. Manheimer’s interesting paper debunks many of the
fashionable nostrums surrounding politicised ‘settled’ climate
science. It is an excellent read. Discussing some of the contrary
opinions that debunk obviously false claims, he says it is
“particularly disheartening” to see learned societies make definitive
claims when so much contrary information is readily available. He
points out that over the last 10,000 years, the Earth has almost
certainly been warmer. There have been warmer and colder periods, just
To find the off-narrative information, even Google can be used,
Manheimer says – though he does note that the company warns it will
not provide information on “claims denying that long-term trends show
that the global climate is warming”.
