A Message from Our Chairman

Please Contribute to Our Center!

As we begin to close out the year, I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your interest in our work, as well as to plead for your new, or continued, financial support.

Over the past 21 years our organization has worked tirelessly to educate the public on the true climatic and biological effects (and non-effects) of the ongoing rise in the air's CO2 content on the biosphere. For the vast majority of that time, our primary means for meeting this objective has been through the publication of our Internet website CO2 Science, where we have posted and archived literally thousands of reviews and editorials on topics of current concern in the global warming debate.

As evidenced there, no other organization in existence provides as wide or as deep of a scientific analysis of the issues surrounding the global warming debate as we do. Because of this, our work has served as the backbone of a multitude of major scientific reports, including those issued by the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change, in challenging the inconsistencies, errors, and falsehoods of the climate alarmist narrative, which portrays CO2 as a pollutant that must be regulated in order to avoid catastrophic consequences to the climate and biosphere. Because of the work we do, we know that nothing could be further from the truth. Carbon dioxide is a life-giving and life-sustaining molecule with a multitude of virtues that benefit nature and humanity alike.

Yet, given the times in which we live, much is at stake from a policy perspective over CO2. The forces aligned against this precious molecule have never been stronger. They have considerable funding and institutional support, including backing at multiple levels of government, and they are on the verge of succeeding in their objective to place the world on a firm path toward eliminating CO2 emissions and all fossil fuel use. Such policy-related actions would have devastating consequences on society and the environment. Consequently, there is an ever-growing need to advocate for the continued development and improvement of society and the natural environment through CO2 emissions and fossil fuel use, which necessity has led us to organize a new Institute for the Human Environment.

Our Institute's mission is to support the unfettered use of fossil fuels so that the industrial evolution of the human community can continue unoppressed by the heavy hand of government, even as the natural environment improves due to increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2) content. Our Institute aims to change the dynamic and reverse the course of the global warming/climate change debate to widespread public acceptance of the concept of fossil fuels forever. This objective is what differentiates our organization from all others engaged in this battle. We are an educational institute, but also activists and advocates. We are not simply a research entity or a think tank; we are boots on the ground to protect the right of unfettered fossil fuel use to improve the human environment. That is our goal and ultimate "deliverable," and we are the only organization in this space that approaches the use of fossil fuels as advocates from an environmental standpoint, advancing concepts of how humanity and the natural world benefit from CO2 emissions and fossil fuel use, not despite them.

Joining the Center's personnel in these efforts is Fred Palmer and Mark Carr. Mark is an expert in communications and public affairs. Fred is a lawyer and long-time CO2 and fossil fuel advocate who holds extensive legal and regulatory knowledge and experience on state and US energy and environmental policy. His involvement in this issue dates back over two decades. More information on Fred and Mark can be viewed by clicking the links on their names above.

In closing, history is our witness, as a multitude of observations unequivocally confirm there is no up and coming climate apocalypse, while also establishing the critical role of higher CO2 emissions and fossil fuel use in advancing human development and improving the natural environment. More fossil fuels (i.e., the concept of fossil fuels forever) are necessary to create the optimum human environment on planet Earth. No other organization recognizes or comes close to understanding and advocating for these important facts as we do.

Doing the work of our Center is more than just a job for us; it is our passion. It engages us at dawn, sustains us through the day, and keeps us working far into each night. Yet, as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, our Center relies upon public contributions to exist. If you have found our material useful, I humbly ask that you please make a generous donation so we can continue our work through 2020 and beyond. We need your help and we pledge to do all we can to continue to educate and advocate for CO2.

Please send your donation today. Contributions may be made using your credit card or PayPal account by clicking on the donate button below. Or, you can contribute by sending your check or money order to the address also listed there.

Thank you for your generosity and please continue to help the Center's sphere of influence grow by informing your family, friends and colleagues of our work and encouraging them to donate as well.

With kindest regards,

Craig D. Idso
