90 Scientists Write to Pope Francis - You're Being Misled

- Computer climate models of the warming effect of enhanced atmospheric carbon dioxide are the basis for fear that fossil fuel use endangers humanity and the environment.
- On average, models simulate more than twice the observed warming over the relevant period. Over 95% of the models simulate greater warming than has been observed.
- We are currently experiencing an absence of global warming long enough to be nearly impossible to reconcile with the models
- The scientific method demands that theories be tested by empirical observation. By that test, the models are wrong.

The models therefore provide no rational basis to forecast dangerous human-induced global warming, and therefore no rational basis for efforts to reduce warming by restricting the use of fossil fuels or any other means.
