Many friends of Heartland, including Lord Christopher Monckton, have drawn our attention to the 50-to-1 project. The project of Australian filmmakers is worth getting behind, and sharing with your friends. From the project’s website:
What if we could show you that trying to ‘stop’ climate change is 50 times more expensive than adapting to it? And what if we could prove it using numbers and formulas accepted by the IPCC, CRU and other ‘consensus’ bodies? Well that’s exactly what 50-to-1 does.
It’s also a big part of what Heartland does, with so many projects and publications it’s hard to keep count. It’s a lot, including our eight international conferences on climate change. Monckton has been a frequent speaker. And you can view them here.
The 50-to-1 guys need some help to get their video out to the public. It can be — in the words of the producers — a “game-changer and could radically shift the climate debate.” I have no doubt. Watch filmmaker Christopher Field explain:
Again, the producers describe their important project:
50 to 1 cuts across all the noise and fury surrounding the ‘climate debate’ and gets right to the point: Even if the IPCC is right, and even if climate change IS happening and it IS caused by man, we are STILL better off adapting to it as it happens than we are trying to ‘stop’ it. ‘Action’ is 50 times more expensive than ‘adaptation’, and that’s a conclusion which is derived directly from the IPCC’s own predictions and formulae!
That statement is demonstrably true. We just need to get the message out there — before it’s too late. This project, part of the Lord Monckton Foundation, could use a boost. Check out the website and contribute a few bucks, if you can.
