- You would not be here unless you – like me – were convinced that this danger is real. This is not fiction, this is science. Unchecked, climate change will pose unacceptable risks to our security, our economies, and our planet. That much we know.
- Now, I believe that it's time for the nations and people of the world to come together behind a common purpose. We must choose action over inaction; the future over the past – with courage and faith, let us meet our responsibility to our people, and to the future of our planet.
- Thank you.

Sciencegate of Magical Thinking in Copenhagen
The World leaders assembled in Copenhagen could not agree on anything but begging the Earth to not warm up more than 2 degrees Celcius, without telling how this might be enforced upon the Earth. This reflects a somewhat alarming magical thinking of our leaders, far from any scientific enlightenment and rationality.
The World leaders thus passed a potentially dangerous tipping point with the push coming from the collapse of UN climate science in Climategate. In order to restore sound rational scientific thinking, which most people would ask for, it is necessary to restore the credibility of science and scientists.
To this end it is necessary that scientific academies withdraw their unconditional support of the UN climate panel IPCC. Without such support IPCC will fall together with UN climate science and politics.
In particular, The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences will have to revise its statement on climate change in support of IPCC. This statement is signed by 3 climate science experts in the Academy, but there is also a contradictory statement signed by 3 other climate science experts in the Academy. The score is thus even, and the withdrawal can come any time...stay tuned...
Science and scientific controversy is like a boxing match, where there can be only one winner
and compromise is not allowed. Either the Earth is flat or round, but not something in between.
Obama came all the way from the US to give the World the following encouraging message:
