New Faculty Positions at Bolin Centre

Bert Bolin Centre for Climate Research opens 7 new tenured faculty positions in numerical modeling of the climate system

The Bolin Centre confesses to IPCC climate alarmism based on numerical modeling, for which the scientific foundation now is eroding, as evidenced in particular in a recent debate article by 9 professors at the Centre. In this perspective the announced expansion of the faculty is very remarkable. The centre conducts a 10-year research and research environment-building program, funded by FORMAS and VR embracing 
Bert Bolin (1925-2007 world leading scientist and science organizer played a central role in the formation and management of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

It is also very remarkable that the research is based on a preconcieved postulate of "man´s ever-increasing impact on the climate system through emission of greenhouse gases". Note the clever use of the term "ever-increasing" without quantitative information, which is meant to signal alarm without any need of providing scientific evidence, following the standard of IPCC. But what will happen to the Bolin Centre if the effect of CO2  shows to be neglible?
