Finally, we have been able to publish a volume with the Proceedings from the Conference on
Natural Variability and Tolerance, held in Oslo 18-19 October 2019. The conference attracted
170 participants and was a joint effort between The Climate Realists in Norway, Sweden and
Denmark. Chairman of the Organizing Committee was Morten Jødal, who also was chairman of the Norwegian Climate Realists. Jødal’s main message was that the Earth’s nature is resilient. Life is not dying. The number of species are growing. The polar bears and the Great Barrier Reef are doing fine in a warmer climate. And food production, using less area, is increasing more than the Earths population. Only limited by poor management.
Unfortunately, Morten Jødal died in September 2021, right after the first issue of this Journal was published and was not able to take care of the proceedings. That became my job. Luckily, we had filmed all the talks, so I was able to transcribe missing contributions from the recordings.
An article about a laboratory experiment which demonstrate warming due to
back-radiation from greenhouse gases carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide. It is shown that the effect is small and is confirmed by radiation transfer calculations. The authors conclude there is no climate emergency.
The Editorial Board consists of Stein Storlie Bergsmark, Ole Henrik Ellestad, Martin Hovland,
Ole Humlum and Olav Martin Kvalheim.
