Professor Jan-Erik Solheim explains the work of scientists Ned Nikolov and Karl Zeller, who conclude that carbon dioxide has no influence on our climate. It is the thickness and weight of the atmosphere, i.e. its mass and the gravitation, that makes Earth livable.
We very much regret that the star speaker in extremely elegant English, Christopher Monckton, had been taken ill, so he did not attend.
Professor Claes Johnson showed how the IPCC hypothesis and its climate models are based on an equation with a logical error. They assume that carbon dioxide in the air is warmed by longwave radiation from the ground and that it radiates energy back to the ground, the so called ”back radiation”. The models apply the effect of increased carbon dioxide to the absolute temperature of the air, some 290 degrees, instead of the temperature difference between ground and air, maybe 5 degrees.
Willie Soon of the Smithsonian Institute in Boston described his studies of cyclical patterns in climate and the activity of the Sun and the movements of the planets. Superimposed celestical processes are important drivers of our climate and even of our weather, the complexity of which is not yet fully understood.
Henrik Svensmark of the Danish Technical University described how his team now have fully understood the process by which the Sun influences our climate. His theory of cosmic particles creating molecule clusters that serve as condensation nuclei for water vapor has been critizised, because the clusters were too small. He has now proven that the originally small clusters grow a thousand or a million times, so they become big enough to attract water vapor molecules to form clouds.
