We explore the science behind global warming, free from deception and rancour, and we publish it freely.

We can no longer stand neutral on global warming. The belief in man-made global warming can incite the fervent emotions of religious zealots, when questioning it can invoke scorn and hatred. At the CCG we strive to conduct discussions in an atmosphere of imperturbable curiosity.

We conclude, as Vincent Gray told us, that global warming is what the earth does when it’s not cooling. It must be mostly natural, not man-made, since so far any sign of a human influence on the climate is undetectable, though it seems reasonable that we have some effect.

Carbon dioxide is vital to life and entirely benign, save only that it’s not the only constituent of one’s local atmosphere. The facts are that CO2 levels have been 17 times higher than today for many millions of years, but run-away global warming never occurred. It’s seems unlikely to start now; the late 20th-century warming has been within normal limits; the physics says that almost all the warming you can get from CO2 has already occurred; and the only sign that warming will be dangerous in future is computer models that so far don’t even match the climate we’ve had.

Many of the facts we’ve unearthed and most of the conversations we have are not to be found in the mainstream media, and they ought to be known across the land. There is strong evidence that casts doubt on the theory of dangerous man-made global warming.

It’s difficult wading through the science, it’s tough keeping your head in the hothouse of activism and it’s especially difficult to know whom to trust. So we aim to be a credible voice in the global warming wilderness. We bring a simple message: listen, find evidence and avoid conclusions slanted by bias.

We hold occasional public meetings to discuss global warming in a calm climate. Leave a comment!
