Prominent Swedish Climate Scientist Leaves The Church of Global Warming under Immense Pressure
Who is attacking this man? The very scientists and academics who promote the global-warming and climate change mainstream consensus. This, rather than letting the research lead the way to environmental and political policy.
In an interview, Professor Lennart Bengtsson spoke on his reasons for joining the Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPC), "My interest in climate science and in weather prediction has always been driven by scientific curiosity and I have increasingly been disturbed by the strong tendencies to politization that has taken place in climate research in recent years. I believe most serious scientists are sceptics and are particularly frustrated that we are not able to properly validate climate change simulations."
The GWPC is described by Bengtsson as "economists and leading intellectuals that often have expressed critique towards the present dominant climate policy."
Bengtsson quickly became the target of a witchhunt by his scientific and academic peers, when he stuck to truthful scientific examination rather than the pressure of such groups as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
As reported in Die Klimazwiebel, Bengtsson declared his resignation of the advisory board of GWPF in an email. His letter read: "I have been put under such an enormous group pressure in recent days from all over the world that has become virtually unbearable to me. If this is going to continue I will be unable to conduct my normal work and will even start to worry about my health and safety. I see therefore no other way out therefore than resigning from GWPF. I had not expecting such an enormous world-wide pressure put at me from a community that I have been close to all my active life. Colleagues are withdrawing their support, other colleagues are withdrawing from joint authorship etc. I see no limit and end to what will happen. It is a situation that reminds me about the time of McCarthy. I would never have expecting anything similar in such an original peaceful community as meteorology. Apparently it has been transformed in recent years."
This largely unscientific behaviour of influential scientific bodies, universities, and lawmakers is not a new phenomenon. Global warming, climate change, and climate science are all fields of study which have been hijacked by a political movement for reasons of money and control, as evidenced by the fierce treatment of those who don’t chant the approved ‘consensus’ dogma. Like many other good, ethical scientists, academics and researchers, Bengtsson has taken up the duty of pointing out the corruption, lies, and the ‘poisonous atmosphere’ within these establishment groups - to his peril.
I was victimised for challenging zealots, says professor: Poison, plots and a battle to neuter climate change critics

A leading academic says activists are trying to block scientific reports that question the dangers of climate change.
Professor Lennart Bengtsson said he had been subjected to ‘unbearable’ pressure from other researchers and warned of the increasing politicisation of the once ‘peaceful’ science.
Others described a ‘poisonous atmosphere’ in which researchers plot behind the scenes to block the publication of work that queries the danger posed by climate change.
Prof Bengtsson, a top meteorologist attached to Reading University, spoke out after some of his research was rejected by a leading scientific journal.
His study suggested carbon dioxide may be less damaging to the planet than feared – effectively challenging the political consensus and the urgency of the taxpayer-funded drive towards green energy.
An unnamed academic who was asked to help decide if the paper should be published, denounced it as ‘harmful’. The reviewer also warned it would generate bad publicity and have a ‘high’ but ‘strongly negative’ impact on the field of climate change science.
Prof Bengtsson said having research rejected was ‘part and parcel of academic life’, but added that it would be ‘utterly unacceptable’ for an academic to advise against publishing a paper on the grounds that it might bolster the views of climate sceptics.
He told the Times: ‘It is an indication of how science is gradually being influenced by political views. The problem we now have in the climate community is that some scientists are mixing up their scientific role with that of climate activist.
‘The reality hasn’t been keeping up with the [computer] models. Therefore, if people are proposing to do major changes to the world’s economic system, we must have much more solid information.’
