【発表の概要】

Global warming has been elevated to a religious icon of a devil. This allows us to blame all and sundry on the devil, feel righteous and do nothing useful. Billions of dollars are being spent annually on the so called global warming problem, politicians are carrying on about it endlessly, spending taxpayers money, based on their uneducated understanding of the problem. Industry is exploiting the emotional aspects for the benefit of their shareholders and scientists are playing with large numerical simulations, of dubious usefulness, like kids with new toys.
It is time to take stock and put into focus the nature of the threat that is real under a business as usual scenario. I will start with explaining why the interglacial periodicity is 100,000 years, a new result that seems to have escaped attention. This understanding opens the way for a simple quantification of the effect of greenhouse gases and a synthesis of solutions to the, so called, global warming threat.  I will use Western Australia as an example, of how the world could become carbon neutral, almost overnight, prosper economically and protect its biodiversity.
The only question, in my own mind is, whether we have the courage to change course and not just follow our tribal leaders blindly into extinction.
