The only relevant policy question about climate change is the effect of CO2. It can be easily confirmed that CO2 has no observable effect on the climate.
The burden of proof for scientific theories is extraordinarily high. E.g. the theory of evolution needs to be true in all cases – no exception. Even one piece of evidence inconsistent with the CO2 “knob of climate” theory is sufficient to sink it. And we have tons of it.
The Earth started warming from around 1800 after the end of the Little Ice Age. The rather poorly correlated relationship between warming since 1800 and man-made CO2 emissions since 1950 is purely coincidental, not causal. Geological data also confirm that CO2 never caused climate change in the past – so it is impossible for it to cause such change today.
It is not necessary to have a proven alternative theory of the climate, for that is an ongoing matter for science to explore. We must reject attempts by UN organisations to impose the socialist model on the world in the guise of “climate change”. We must, instead, strongly commit to appropriate action against real pollutants and real environmental issues.

WE ARE IN AN ICE AGE – ACCORDING TO THE PRESTIGIOUS “SCIENCE” MAGAZINE
Note on this chart above: Although this is published in the prestigious Science (2019) magazine (screenshot in case they remove it), the ideological position of Science has contaminated its commentary. The claim that “humans have been rapidly warming the climate “again” is ideological nonsense. Half of half a degree max (even going by IPCC) doesn’t even show up as a blip in this chart.
In general, climate scientists who have never studied geology don’t know that the Earth has been dramatically cooling over the past 500 years. A tiny squeak of 1 degree centigrade over 100 years bothers them so much.
