COP21 and Australian Sovereignty

Email sent today.

To Malcolm Turnbull, PM; Julie Bishop, Foreign Minister; Greg Hunt, Minister for the Environment.

There is concern among many Australians that, against our wishes, you will sign Kyoto 2 at COP21 in Paris, abandoning Australia’s sovereignty.

Are you aware that a French Science body has described the battle against global warming as an absurd, costly and pointless crusade?

The French Scientific organisation Société de Calcul Mathématique SA (link) has described the battle against global warming as an absurd, costly and pointless crusade in their White Paper. In a very detailed report they say, inter alia, that
  • ·      None of the information on global temperatures is of any scientific value; (P31)
  • ·      CO2: measurement stations are not distributed evenly and there are clearly not enough of them, given the great variability of CO2 concentrations; (P52)
  • ·       the entire methodology used to observe CO2 has to be overhauled before we can even think about the results that have been obtained by these observations; (P56)
  • ·      Sea Level Rise: is due to the cooling down of the core of the terrestrial globe which has been taking place gradually for five billion years - human beings have nothing to do with it. (P76)

Also please consider the reports from the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (link). Whereas the reports of the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) warn of a dangerous human effect on climate, NIPCC concludes the human effect is likely to be small relative to natural variability, and whatever small warming is likely to occur will produce benefits.

The Greens have for years stated that they wanted Australian Sovereignty to be replaced by a UN-led World Government. (Back up link) but it has never been part of LNP platform.

At COP21, please do not sign away Australia’s sovereignty without first asking the people. (And if you have to sign, make sure that there is a back-out clause.)
