The public have rightfully become less tolerant of pollution and much progress has been made to clean up the Western world. Governments, the media and many people are of the view that CO2 is the cause of climate change, is of human origin and is a pollutant. It would seem to the layman that there is no longer any need for scientific debate about climate change. There has never been a transparent public debate. The time is now.

It has no mathematical or evidential basis. It is comparable to 100% certainty professed by religious devotees that theirs is the one and only true faith. My experience of dealing with blindingly obvious arguments against creation “science” was that data and logic were treated with anger, rejection and hostility. Scientific arguments were never addressed. With some rabid environmentalists, human-induced global warming has evolved into a similar religious belief system. This, I argue in the last chapter of this book, is an urban atheistic religion disconnected from Nature and it evolved to fill a yawning spiritual vacuum in the Western world.
Crispin Tickell, a lobbyist for the planned IPCC was the UK’s permanent representative on the UN. Earlier he had published a book10 on the dangers of global cooling, now he was warning of the dangers of global warming. Under the auspices of the UN’s World Meteorological Organization and the UN Environment Program, the IPCC was established. As global warming was a hot topic, it was discussed in 1989 by the US Senate Committee on Science, Technology and Space chaired by Senator Al Gore. The Committee heard submissions by Dr Roger Revelle (who had taught Gore at Harvard) and Dr James Hansen (Director, Goddard Institute for Space Studies).
