Good morning, CFACT!
Last night, our students at Liberty University hosted an EPIC event featuring award winning scientist Gregory Wrightstone!
Julia Heath, our amazing chapter president oncampus, put the event together. It was a smashing success, with well over 75 registered attendees!
Wrightstone lectured the students on the history of climate temperature movement, and pointed to the false narrative the left highlights routinely to grow their own power. If you’re not familiar with his work, Gregory Wrightstone is a geologist and author of the bestselling book, “Inconvenient Facts: The science that Al Gore doesn’t want you to know”. He recently assumed the role as Executive Director of the CO2 Coalition, a non-profit. His book has been a bestseller on Amazon in environmental studies since March 2019.
“We need to put the relationship between temperature and CO2 in a longer term picture…” Wrightstone said, highlighting that the short-term narrative posed by the left may show wild fluctuations, but the long-term trend disproves their argument that climate change is man-made. “The warming trend we’re on now started in 17th century!” He remarked.
Based on some of the temperature trends he later identified, he predicted an ice age some time in the next thousand years. Whereas the earth has warmed over time, the Earth has also cooled in certain areas. “There was never ice on any of the poles historically. Romans grew citrus in North England and VIKINGS grew barley in Greenland….we’re in one of the coldest periods in history”. Wrightstone concluded his talk with with an excellent quote, saying “Modest warming and increase in C02 has nothing but a positive impact on our ecosystem. I love CO2, and you should too.”
The Liberty University students were extremely grateful that Wrightstone took the time out of his very busy schedule to speak with them, and were grateful to CFACT for helping facilitate this awesome event. If you would like to watch the event in full, you can do so here!
