The CO₂ Coalition Petition

Professor Richard Lindzen, MIT

Från professor Lindzen har jag fått en begäran om stöd för en petition till den nya administrationen i USA, som visat intresse för att granska verkliga fakta om klimatet.

Läs och mejla till den angivna adressen din villighet att stå som undertecknare av petitionen. Jag antar att han främst vänder sig till personer med en ställning som kunniga inom klimatforskningen.

If you wish to join me and others in supporting the petition below, please send an e-mail to

Include your field of expertise, your highest academic degree, B.S., M.S. or PhD, and any other relevant information, similar to that in the “tag line” below. If you have friends who are also familiar with climate issues, please forward this note to them and invite them to join us.

PhD, Alfred P. Sloan Professor of Meteorology, Emeritus, MIT, Member of National Academy of Sciences, author of numerous papers on climate and meteorology


We urge the United States government, and others, to withdraw from the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). We support reasonable and cost-effective environmental protection. But carbon dioxide, the target of the UNFCCC, is not a pollutant but a major benefit to agriculture and other life on Earth. Observations since the inception of the UNFCCC 23 years ago show that warming from increased atmospheric CO2 will be benign — much less than initial model predictions.

  1. Dr Lindzen says in last paragraph: “warming from increased atmospheric CO2″… But isn’t it the other way around? I.e. Increase in temperature increases amount of CO2 in the atmosphere?

    1. Jo, du har rätt! Lindzen menar att verkan är liten och välgörande. Enligt mitt lexikon betyder “benign” bl.a. “gynnsam”. I andra sammanhang har han förklarat att människans inverkan på klimatet finns men är obetydlig.

      1. Ok , ville bara veta att jag mindes rätt det som jag läst många ggr på Klimatsans, bra att det finns en motbild till alla “Domedagspredikanter”!

  2. Dear Dick
    I am familiar with your profound insight in atmospheric dynamics behaviour so I have no difficulty in supporting your petition.

  3. Hello Everybody!

    I think the root of the problem is astronomical and not related to what we eartlings do.
    I am glad President Trump seems to have the same idea. The sun moves to different parts of the of the Galaxy, where the magnitude of presence of atoms, molecules and particles differ.

  4. Professor Lindzen,
    I am impressed by your insight and views on Climate Issues as I have been able to learn about that on the Internet. Based on that and on what I have learned from friends presently active in the scientific community I will certainly be pleased to support your petition.
