Summary Statement by Viv Forbes, Founding Secretary of Clexit
A new international organisation aims to prevent ratification of the costly and dangerous Paris global warming treaty which is being promoted by the EU and the present US administration.
“CLEXIT” (CLimate Exit) was inspired by the Brexit decision of the British people to withdraw from the increasingly dictatorial grasp of the EU bureaucracy.
Without any publicity or serious recruiting, Clexit has attracted over 60 well-informed science, business and economic leaders from 16 countries. (At 16 Sept 2016 Clexit had over 170 members from 25 countries).
The secretary of Clexit, Mr Viv Forbes from Australia, said that widespread enforcement of the Paris climate treaty would be a global tragedy.
“For the EU and the rest of the Western world, ratification and enforcement of the Paris Treaty (and all the other associated decrees and Agendas) would herald the end of low-cost hydrocarbon transport and electricity, and the exit of their manufacturing, processing and refining industries to countries with low-cost energy.
“For developing countries, the Paris Treaty would deny them the benefits of reliable low-cost hydrocarbon energy, compelling them to rely on biomass heating and costly weather-dependent and unreliable power supplies, thus prolonging and increasing their dependency on international handouts. They will soon resent being told to remain forever in an energy-deprived wind/solar/wood/bicycle economy.
“Perhaps the most insidious feature of the UN climate plan is the “Green Climate Fund”. Under this scheme, selected nations (“The rich”) are marked to pour billions of dollars into a green slush fund. The funds will then be used to bribe other countries (“developing and emerging nations”) into adopting silly green energy policies.
“Naturally some smart politicians and speculators in the BRICS nations (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) and in the small island nations, understand that they can profit from the Paris Treaty by gaming the rules on things like carbon credits, or milking the green fund for “climate compensation” or “green energy technology”. This will only work for a while, and when the handouts stop, the re-adjustment to reality will be very painful.
“This UN-driven war on carbon energy has already caused massive losses and dislocation of western industry. If allowed to continue as envisaged by the Paris Treaty, this economic recession will become a world-wide depression, and all nations will suffer.
“We must stop this futile waste of community savings; cease the destruction and dislocation of human industry; stop killing rare bats and birds with wind turbine blades and solar/thermal sizzlers; stop pelletising trees and shipping them across the world to feed power stations designed to burn coal; stop converting food to motor vehicle fuel; and stop the clearing of bush and forests for biofuel cultivation and plantations.”
“Carbon dioxide does not control the climate. It is an essential plant food and more carbon dioxide will produce more plant growth and a greener globe.”

To stop the climate madness you have to disprove the “settled science” in a court of law. To beat the UN/Government propaganda machines otherwise will be difficult. A high profile case such as the BBC for spreading false information might be a good path. People believe what they read in press and see on the news channels. Recently the families of fallen servicemen and women in Iraq and Afghanistan have raised £150k to pursue Tony Blair in court for his actions. Why not the same approach across all the organisations combatting the climate scam? I for one will contribute.
I second that – calling the BBC to account is long overdue.
Great news, the question is why not years ago? The GWPF clearly needed assistance in its lone-stance against the force of the brilliantly organised climate lobby.
However, at last the establishment position is being attacked by a clearly independent group of experts.
Count me in.
Climate warming is the worst existential threat the planet has ever faced. We know this because the best minds in the history of humanity have been recruited to identify it and fight it back. It cannot be otherwise (unless from President Obama down, everyone has lied). There is exactly zero chance a handful of mercenary deniers will be able to outargue climate scientists whose accomplishments bring shame to those of Newton, da Vinci, Aristotle, or Curie, to name a few.
Oh dear. Take a bex an have a nap. You must be tired. Will change nappy first
This is politisezed science in the same vein as Lysenkoism , the Ban on DDT and Eugenics. Just as wrong, just as corrupt and just as deadly in its consequences . The word “consensus ” should have given that away as is Obama’s approval.
Time to end this pack of climate lies. South Australia knows first hand what a painful boondoggle this green feel-goodery has caused. The trillions those shady UN bureaucrats are smacking their lips over won’t be forthcoming. They’ll have to work for a living, just like the poor they’ve been usurping for decades.
Very best wishes long overdue. The many vested interests will be baying for your blood, which I only hope makes you more determined to undermine and destroy this gigantic scam.
You have my absolute support, so little is actually known about the carbon cycle, CO2 in the atmosphere and any possible effects, but so much is leveraged from it. Scientists cannot even interpret the existing CO2 cycles shown in the Keeling curves.
I have documented the True Carbon Cycle using the thirty (30) recently released OCO-2 images covering the period September 2014 to February 2016. Yes my findings are challenging in many ways, but no one else will even acknowledge the existence of the images let alone try and interpret them, such is the poor carbon cycle – CO2 understanding.
Good luck and have fun.
Congratulations Viv, Christopher and friends for getting this started. The fact that CO2 is plant food is a fact. 11% of extra foliage has been created in 28 years thanks to CO2. This is past history, not future speculation based on models that have never made a successful prediction. It is beyond me how they get away with simply never stating these fact and mindlessly calling the basis of photosynthetic life “pollution”. The sooner they are named and shamed the better. Very best wishes to all!
My congratulations to all of you who have had the courage to make this move.
Together I believe that we can make the tide turn!
I will do what I can to help and be a part of this movement.
After 30 years of listening to the climate change rubbish & lies from the green left I honestly believe that the time for change has come. I have limited financial resources myself but am prepared to help all I can. And I am ready to stand up for what I believe.
I would join a march in Sydney anytime!

The ‘Great Global Warming Swindle’ Debate
by Russell Grigg
On July 12, 2007 the ABC1 (Australian TV Channel 2) showed a documentary film entitled The Great Global Warming Swindle, produced by filmmaker Martin Durkin of Wag TV Productions in the UK, and shown there last February. This was followed by an interview between ABC presenter Tony Jones and Martin Durkin, in London, which in turn was followed by a panel discussion in the ABC studio, led by Tony Jones, with studio audience involvement.
This article is at http://www.creation.com. Also the video BREXIT was made by Martin Durkin. Both excellent. The evidence of this politicized climate demonization of carbon dioxide and carbon based life scam has been known for such a long time now…….will they never stop ? As self funded retirees we fully endorse CLEXIT. Wishing Viv and co. all the very best !
Well done Viv this is sorely needed to fight back against the Oh so arrogant Globalist World Government swindle the UN scum let slip in the original Copenhagen paperwork.
But people be aware of other threats such as the new “Global Parliament of Mayors” the enemy is working diligently to undermine the people of the Worlds freedoms and never forget when all said and done they also subscribe to a “Sustainable World Population of only 500 Million, So who volunteers to drop dead so they can attain their Evil agenda.
Never forget people this is not just about corruption and money and power but in truth the power of Life and Death in the hands of unscrupulous and Evil minded cabal of traitors to humanity, equaled only by the World Domiation Goals of the Cult of Arab Supremacy Islam, who are also embroiled in this boondoggle scam because of the “damage” it causes to their enemies the free civilised western nations of the world.
According to “Carbon Pricing Watch 2015” of the World Bank, the different forms of carbon taxes picked 50 BILLION dollars out of our pockets in 2015, for just 12.5% of the global CO2 emissions. “Follow the money” and you can find out who profits from the climate madness.
The populations of wild boars, foxes, wolves, roe deers, badgers and brown bears are constantly increasing in Greece. There is plenty of food, perhaps due to the -mainly released from the oceans- increased CO2 in the atmosphere. What is good for animal life cannot be bad for humanity. So CLEXIT now!
Thanks a ton! It a great web site!.
It is disappointing that there are still people who refuse to believe the effect of our carbon emissions and the likely suffering that they are causing around the world. The things that climate scientists have been predicting for nearly thirty years are happening – the increase in weather extremes and global temperatures, sea levels rising, Arctic ice rapidly melting. You keep emphasising how carbon dioxide increases plant growth when you all know that is not the point.
Do you realise that atmospheric CO2 has increased by 26% since measurements started in 1958? And rising fast, not to mention increases in other greenhouse gases. They all trap heat! How can you say there is no effect on the climate? – you don’t know that!
In spite of the problems with the politics, it is high time you all accepted what is happening instead of irresponsibly promoting the sceptic argument.
If 97% of the doctors in the world told you that you had cancer would you believe them, even if you didn’t you’d still get the chemo treatment anyway?
Climate change is our worlds cancer. Together we can change it and make a better world for ourselves and our children. This is not a conspiracy against us all, climate change and sustainability are the greatest threat and opportunity we face.
These things are NOT sustainable according to UN writings:
What is not sustainable? Grazing of livestock, plowing of soil, building fences, industry, single family homes, paves and tarred roads, logging activities, dams and reservoirs, power line construction, and economic systems that fail to set proper value on the environment.” UN’s Biodiversity Assessment Report.
“Current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class – involving high meat intake, use of fossil fuels, appliances, home and work air conditioning, and suburban housing are not sustainable.” Maurice Strong, Sec Gen of the UN’s Earth Summit, 1992. http://www.quadrant.org.au/blogs/doomed-planet/2010/01/discovering-maurice-strong
Is that all OK with you dear?
Well said Peter. Looks like solar technologies are just around the corner anyway is this the last twitch of the dying carbon dinosaur? See recent evidence in “The Switch” by Goodall. James Rattray.
Denying the science of human induced climate change is like insisting the world was created in 7 days.
Science is not a religion or ideology, it is a method according to which theories which do not fit the facts are amended or abandoned. The theory of Anthropogenic Global Warming (aka Human Induced Climate Change) does not fit the following facts:
(1) Modern statistical techniques show that there has been no significant change in global average temperature for the last 166 years. There is no “trend”; observed changes are the random fluctuations of a centrally biased random walk.
(2) The “Bomb Test Curve” of declining 14C in the atmosphere indicates that CO2 has a half-time in the atmosphere of only 10 years, not the hundreds of years of the Bern Model used in numerical climate models. This implies that at least 80 percent of the recent increases in atmospheric CO2 are naturally occuring and not due to human activity.
(3) The adiabatic lapse rate at which the atmosphere cools with increasing height is measured by meteorological balloons many times a day. It is consistent with a convective model of heat transport in the atmosphere. It is not consistent with a radiative model of heat transport in the atmosphere.
People who ignore or trivialise these facts in order to promote their theory have no right to call themselves “scientists”; they are not using the scientific method.
Please look and read this information is quite easy to come by.
Would any one be helpful In helping me to find some fact sheets and raw data on which these points of view are based on.
