Call for Clexit (as in EU CLimate Exit)

By Viv Forbes -- August 4, 2016

“Carbon dioxide does not control the climate. It is an essential plant food, and more carbon dioxide will produce more plant growth and a greener globe.”

“Clexit as a movement is spreading world-wide (16 countries already).”

For a while now I have been engrossed in helping to launch “Clexit”, whose aim is to get us all out of the Paris Climate Treaty and all of its associated Agendas. This will tell you all about it: The Paris Climate Treaty Should Be Torn Up.

Our initial goal was to assemble a small but impressive list of supporters spread across the globe with good credentials to speak about climate science, climate history, carbon dioxide, hydrocarbon energy, energy economics, business or politics. We have reached that goal and are now going public to seek further support and more members.

So we have launched.

Below is a statement you can extract and use verbatim for resends if you wish.

Clexit Creeps Closer

The “CLEXIT” Campaign (CLimate Exit) which originated in Australia was inspired by the Brexit decision of the British people to withdraw from the increasingly dictatorial EU bureaucracy. Clexit as a movement is spreading world-wide (16 countries already).

Clexit aims to prevent ratification of the costly and dangerous Paris global warming treaty which is being promoted by the EU/UN and their green army.

This war on hydro-carbon energy has already caused massive losses to western industry. If allowed to continue as envisaged by the Paris Treaty, economic depression will follow and all nations will suffer.

We must stop this futile waste of community savings; cease the destruction and dislocation of human industry; stop killing rare bats and birds with wind turbine blades and solar/thermal sizzlers; stop pelletising trees to feed power stations designed to burn coal; stop converting food to motor vehicle fuel; and stop the clearing of bush and forests for biofuel cultivation and plantations.

Carbon dioxide does not control the climate. It is an essential plant food, and more carbon dioxide will produce more plant growth and a greener globe.

The Other Side Takes Note

This reaction from just yesterday from DeSmog Blog s , a US-based Left smear sheet:

In the wake of the political tsunami caused by the UK’s decision to leave the EU, a group of climate science denialists has formed to jump enthusiastically onto the Brexit bandwagon…. The group claims to have ’60 well-informed science, business and economic leaders from 16 countries’ signing on to a founding statement that is chock-full of long-debunked climate change myths, together with attacks on renewable energy and the United Nations.

It is good to be noticed, and the fight is on. We have the opportunity to turn a strong intellectual case into a political one.
