Heinz Lycklama, also the Galileo Movement

Dear interested parties,

It has been a few months since I issued an update to my report on 
An Independent Analysis of Global Warming (GW). You can find
my latest report (with nine new references [#118 -> 127]) on my web
page at www.osta.com/gw.  There are now various independent study
groups that have a very active interest in the GW issue and continually
provide updates as new information becomes available.

I have recently learned that a new group has been formed in Australia
called The Galileo Movement. It was formed to oppose any tax
on CO2 emitted into the atmosphere. They have written a very detailed
expose of the reports issued by the UN IPCC and provide multiple
verifiable references for each of the claims that they make. If you have an
interest in the issue of GW (or climate change or climate disruption) you
are encouraged to read what this group has to say on their website,
www.galileomovement.com.au .

The group was officially announced on May 16, 2011. Here is their announcement:

We’re delighted to be able to introduce you to the web site of the newly-formed Galileo Movement (www.galileomovement.com.au).  The principal aim of this Movement is to first win the battle against the currently threatened tax on carbon dioxide and then to win the war against any drive for ever putting a price on it.

From recent public polls it is obvious that the majority of Australians are opposed to this tax and we believe you are probably part of that majority. 

Our efforts are non-political as there are politicians in all parties who need to be convinced of the futility of taxing a beneficial trace gas in the atmosphere. So many people still think that carbon dioxide is a harmful pollutant; we need your help to educate these people that this is not so! We have strong connections to excellent scientific and other advisers worldwide. We’re ready.

How can you help?  Well, on the web site there is a printable flyer which you can print and distribute into letter boxes, at bus stops, shopping centres and railway stations; it is at http://www.galileomovement.com.au/threat_freedom.php#O and click on “flyer”. 

More importantly, we intend to run a major, national, professionally-managed campaign to gain access to significant members of the mass media (print journalists, radio and TV personalities) who need to understand that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has been spreading truly false information. This campaign will be costly, so we are appealing to you and all like-minded people to make a contribution towards this effort. You will note from our web site that virtually all our efforts are voluntary; there are some minor costs in maintaining formal financial records and in producing and maintaining the web site.  Once we have won the war, any remaining funds are destined to go to the Royal Flying Doctor Service.

Please distribute this email widely to make people aware of www.galileomovement.com.au as this may be our last opportunity to unite to defeat this negative, economic and socially life-changing legislation. It is time to act: “The triumph of evil requires only for good men (and women) to do nothing”.

Thank you,

While The Galileo Movement was formed in Australia, the Global
Warming issue is of interest to all those who are concerned about
the impact that the enactment of any "Cap and Trade" laws might
have on their countries, including the USA. I am particularly impressed
by the completeness of the arguments that The Galileo Movement
makes for not enacting unnecessary legislation to limit carbon
emissions. Their arguments are presented in five categories:
    1. The Corruption (the political and academic corruption of science)
    2. The Science and Futility
    3.  The Economics and Hypocrisy
    4. The Morality and Injustice
    5. The Threat to Freedom
Their conclusions are consistent with those found in my report.
The Galileo Movement reports and facts MUST be considered.
The UN IPCC is encourage to make every effort to refute each
of the claims made by The Galileo Movement.

Here are some things to remember as you review the large
amount of evidence presented by The Galileo Movement:
    1. The UN IPCC Report claim that GW is caused by the human
         production of CO2 is NOT supported by 4000 scientists,
         as is often claimed by UN IPCC personnel.
    2. Only 5 UN IPCC reviewers have actually endorsed the claim
         that GW is caused by human production of CO2.
    3. The UN IPCC provides no specific scientifically measured
        real-world evidence for its false claims of warming and
        human causation thereof.
    4. The number of scientists dissenting from the UN IPCC
        reports is in the thousands.
    5. CO2 is not a pollutant; it is a harmless gas necessary for life.
    6. Increased CO2 in the atmosphere is actually good for
        the growth of plants.
    7. Greenhouse gases are about 1% of the atmosphere.
    8. CO2 makes up about 3.6% of the greenhouse gases in
        the atmosphere; water vapor makes up 95%.
    9. 97% of the CO2 in the atmosphere is produced by natural
        causes; about 3% is produced by human activity.
    10. Controlling the emission of the 3% of the CO2 produced
        by human activity will have very little impact on climate.
    11. The UN IPCC climate models have proven to be very
        inaccurate in forecasting the climate.
    12. The UN IPCC is not a scientific body.
    13. The UN IPCC has largely ignored natural causes of GW.
    14. The UN IPCC has largely ignored the use of accurate
        atmospheric temperature measurements.
    15. Taxing and rationing CO2 will have disastrous impacts on
        the economy of countries which implement such solutions.
    16. Personal freedom is threatened by the implementation of global
        Cap and Trade agreements.
    17. National sovereignty is threatened by the implementation
         of global Cap and Trade agreements.
    18. Cap and Trade schemes are not solutions to real problems.

Respectively submitted for your consideration.
