Sometimes it can be difficult to know if someone is a genuine climate crank, sceptic, one of the GODs*, or just a fly-by-night, johnny-come-lately keen to ride on the soon-to-arrive ice age bandwagon. Well, hereâ€™s the good news. The International Climate Science Coalition has recently published several lists of people who are happy to endorse the Manhattan Declaration. Thatâ€™s right, a list of all (or at least most) of the people who agree with this statement:
That there is no convincing evidence that CO2 emissions from modern industrial activity has in the past, is now, or will in the future cause catastrophic climate change.
No more worries, no need to agonise. If theyâ€™re on the list, theyâ€™re guaranteed to be grade A climate cranks. Please dissect at will. What a remarkable public gesture, no doubt funded by the Heartland Institute in the interest of a better tomorrow. Or possibly not.
