Coalition of Leading Scientists Educates Public on Benefits of CO2, Nonexistence of “Climate Crisis”

Arlington, VA – The CO2 Coalition is proud to announce that ecologist Dr. Patrick Moore will serve as Chairman of their Board of Directors. The new leadership will educate the public about the benefits of carbon dioxide, the main building block of life on Earth. They will explain how the increase in CO2 in the atmosphere from human emissions is spurring increased growth of crops, forests and plants. They will also focus on discussing how CO2 is also a very weak greenhouse gas that may have the added benefit of slight warming of the climate.

They will highlight the U.S. government data showing that the modest warming, even if caused in part by industrial CO2 has resulted in no increase in extreme weather such as hurricanes and droughts or changes in the rate of sea-level rise.

Former chairman Dr. William Happer, an atmospheric physicist, recently left the CO2 Coalition to become a senior director on the National Security Council, where he has proposed a presidential commission to review the science behind claims that climate change threatens national security.

Dr. Moore is a co-founder of Greenpeace and served in the leadership for 15 years, including as a Director of Greenpeace International from 1979-1986. He holds a Ph.D. in Ecology from the University of British Columbia and an Honorary Doctorate of Science from North Carolina State University. Dr. Moore also received the Einstein Society’s National Award for Nuclear Science and History in 2009.

He recently made news when President Trump re-tweeted Dr. Moore’s comments during a television appearance criticizing the Green New Deal.

Commenting on his new role Dr. Moore stated, “We aim to position the CO2 Coalition as the go-to source for information on the benefits of CO2 for the environment and civilization. Human CO2 emissions are causing a greening of the Earth, which will increase agricultural and forestry production, as well as increasing the fertility and abundance of global ecosystems.”

Additionally, leading climate statistician Dr. Caleb Rossiter will serve as the coalition’s Executive Director, where he will manage the organization’s daily operations. Dr. Rossiter has a long and distinguished career as a professor of research methods with a focus on the use and misuse of statistics and models in the climate change debate.

“We’re the scientists and economists saving the people of the planet from the people who claim to be ‘saving the planet,’” said Dr. Caleb Rossiter, Executive Director of the CO2 Coalition.

Other members of the board include experts such as Jan Breslow, M.D., Bruce Everett, Ph.D., Gordon Fulks, Ph.D., Norman Rogers, Jeffrey Salmon Ph.D., Harrison Schmitt, Ph.D., and Leighton Steward. For additional information, please visit their website at https://co2coalition.org/.

The CO2 Coalition was established in 2015 as a 501(c)(3) for the purpose of educating thought leaders, policy makers, and the public about the important contribution made by carbon dioxide to our lives and the economy.  The Coalition seeks to engage in an informed and dispassionate discussion of climate change, humans’ role in the climate system, the limitations of climate models, and the consequences of mandated reductions in CO2 emissions.
