### WSJ: 16 scientists urge a critical review of climate investments

No Need to Panic About Global Warming
The subtitle says that there's no compelling scientific argument for drastic action to 'decarbonize' the world's economy. Sixteen prominent authors who are close to the climate science present some details about the era of Lysenkoism. Ivar Giaever, who is not a co-author, is their top example of the opposition of contemporary scientists against the climate change ideology.

The article was signed by many great folks whom we know (and I know several of them in person), namely Lindzen, Armstrong, Shaviv, Schmitt, Happer, Rutan, Tennekes, and 9 others. While this set of names as a whole is a symbol of a very serious science, it's true that the text could have been signed by dozens of other comparably prominent people, too.

When you look at the scientists who present their opinions about the climate "problem", you will probably agree that the number of "believers" and "skeptics" is roughly comparable.
