Wrightstone is the Executive Director of The CO2 Coalition.
Wrightstone’s permanent ban comes after he posted charts from peer reviewed research supported by official sources demonstrating that current global average CO2 levels are well within the natural range of concentrations throughout the Earth’s history.
The CO2 Coalition is a US-based non-profit organisation ‘providing facts, resources and information about the vital role carbon dioxide plays in our environment.’
Wrightstone has a 35 year career in climate research and was an expert reviewer for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). He is the author of ‘Inconvenient Facts: The Science that Al Gore Doesn’t Want You to Know.‘
Wrightstone told Climate Realism:
The material I posted to Linked In was based on data that is widely accepted by the climate science community, including the U.S. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
I was quickly growing a very large following by posting information showing the many flaws in the notion that increasing CO2 was leading to a looming climate crisis. Many of my posts showcased the many benefits of the combination of modest warming and increasing CO2 leading to huge benefits to the Earth’s ecosystems and humanity.
I was opening eyes and creating converts to climate realism. For that reason, I needed to be silenced.
The charts contained research data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) National Geophysical Data Center (NGDC), and had been referenced in IPCC reports. The charts generated using that data show the CO2 context of each major geologic period, allowing the average non-scientist to see that current CO2 levels are actually at some of the lowest concentrations in Earth’s history.
