Please Support Our End of Year Appeal
Written by John O'Sullivan
It’s that time of the year again and we are humbly asking for your help to keep PSI afloat during 2020. Any donation is warmly welcomed – please be a valued supporter of our cause.
As readers who follow PSI will know, 2019 was massively successful. Perhaps one of our greatest achievements was supporting Dr Tim Ball in his victory over hockey stick data fraudster Michael Mann in the ‘science trial of the century.’
Below is our detailed and ambitious plan for the coming year. Please peruse and be a part of our shared success to defeat junk science.
PRINCIPIA SCIENTIFIC INTERNATIONAL CIC is an association of 4,000+ international scientists, academics engineers and laypersons formed since 2011 to hold to account government-sponsored fraudulent and biased climate science.
PRINCIPIA SCIENTIFIC INTERNATIONAL (PSI) is maintained as a Community Interest Company (CIC) and legally incorporated as a UK non-profit with offices in London, England. Our inaugural chairman and co-founder is world-renowned retired skeptic Canadian climatologist, Dr Tim Ball. CEO is John O’Sullivan.
We are seeking substantial funding to implement a package of measures to advance our important mission to expose government sponsored junk climate science used to justify unnecessary trillion-dollar tax raising policies.
Our greatest achievement to date is supporting Dr Ball in his heroic court battle in the Supreme Court of British Columbia. Legendary singer and U.S. political commentator, Pat Boone has written articles on the significance of this.
Dr Ball successfully defended a multi-million-dollar libel suit filed against him by the alarmist ‘world leading climate scientist’ Dr Michael E Mann of Penn State University. The case lasted eight years and the judge dismissed Mann’s claim on August 22, 2019 due to Mann’s “unreasonable delay” in submitting key evidence.
Mann’s “delay” was his withholding of the “secret science” – hidden data behind his infamous “hockey stick” graph which for 20 years has been the rallying point for UN climate alarmists and policymakers bent on raising taxes and cutting emissions of carbon dioxide.
As experts in this field of science it is the informed opinion of Dr Ball and PSI members that Dr Mann engaged in a criminal conspiracy with a clique of international government-sponsored researchers.
The purpose of the climate Ponzi scheme was to fabricate a record of the past 1,000 years of earth’s temperatures to make disappear the hitherto widely-accepted Medieval Warm Period (MWP), known by scholars for decades as the most reliable proxy evidence from historic records that global temperatures until 500 years ago, were warmer than today.
In tandem with faking the global temperature record, since the 1980’s other biased government researchers systematically resuscitated and revamped the discredited hypothesis of the greenhouse gas effect (GHE). The GHE falsely asserts that carbon dioxide (CO2) is earth’s climate control knob. For 20 years bought off academics have cited the GHE as the scientific cornerstone to bring into being a socialist one-world government.
Our mission has been to demonstrate to the public and unbiased policymakers that:
(a) national science bodies have been infiltrated by activists who have relied on false accounting, cherry-picking, politicized groupthink and negligence to re-write the accepted historic climate record, and;
(b) that the consensus theory of climate change premised on false science that CO2 ‘traps heat’ and raises temperatures is sustained in the mainstream media by peer-pressure, threats and legal coercion and most scientists do not believe CO2 is our planet’s climate control knob.
STRATEGY TO DISCREDIT THE FALSIFIED TEMPERATURE RECORD
In the last decade PSI members have used freedom of information laws (FOIA) to seek to compel government-sponsored university academics to share their data with independent scientists to verify their claims.
We have been frustrated in that endeavour by institutional gatekeepers in government, academia and the courts.
In the UK skeptics used FOI law to petition for the nation’s primary climate scientist, Professor Phil Jones of the University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit (CRU) to release to the public the vast body of original global temperature records the institution held. Instead of complying with the law Jones destroyed irreplaceable original documents that accounted for three-quarters of the world’s historic temperature records. Due to this criminal act many nations no longer have a verifiable historic climate record.
Despite the crime having been committed, the UK regulator, the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) ruled that while the CRU was in breach of the Freedom of Information Act – an offence which is punishable by an unlimited fine no action would be taken.
The ICO said it was unable to prosecute anyone involved because the complaint was made too late. 
The only recourse left to us was to pursue a coordinated public campaign to name and shame the guilty scientists. Dr Ball valiantly played his part in identifying and exposing one of the top figures: Michael E Mann by publicly declaring Mann ‘belongs in the state pen, not Penn State. For this Ball was served with a SLAPP suit (Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation) by Mann’s expensive Canadian libel lawyers. Thanks only to the generous philanthropy of Robert and Rebekah Mercer, Ball was able to fund the case to a successful conclusion.
Dr Ball and PSI now seek further funds to drive home this turn of events. We intend to solicit legal experts in the United States to work with us to press for a full RICO investigation of Dr Mann and his co-conspirators for probable cause upon Mann’s spoliation in the Mann-v-Ball lawsuit.
PARTNERING WITH SPECIALIST LAWYERS
We seek $400,000 in donor funds to implement a legal strategy of filing Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits to investigate this misconduct by government officials. Judicial Watch is persuaded that climate science is “fraud science” and filed lawsuits seeking to force the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to release the correspondence of climate scientists who published a 2015 study in the journal Science. 
We will carefully craft and implement more probing FOIA requests with the view to ultimately obtaining a compelling case for a full RICO investigation under a Trump administration.

STRATEGY TO EXPOSE THE FALSE SCIENCE OF THE GREENHOUSE GAS EFFECT (GHE)
BOOK PROMOTION & MARKETING
PSI’s initial foray into exposing the false science of the greenhouse gas theory, the junk science relied upon by alarmist government researchers, was our 2010 book, ‘Slaying the Sky Dragon: Death of the Greenhouse Gas Theory.’
None of the scientific claims in the book have been refuted by any published peer-reviewed study and it remains pristine as a valid refutation
The book’s lead author was Dr Tim Ball who was backed by co-authors with PhD’s in relevant core disciplines including Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. These experts in their field exposed the lesser scientific skills of government researchers who had incorrectly modelled earth’s climate using fudged data and inapplicable parameters.
Our second book, ‘Slaying the Sky Dragon: Victory Lap’ co-authored by Dr Ball and explaining details of his epic legal win, is now with our publishers ready for launch. The book also addresses key scientific developments made since the first book’s publication.
We are already much indebted to legendary singer, Pat Boone, who has recently come out to publicly endorse Dr Tim Ball and PSI. But we need many more honest intermediaries with a high public profile who will assist to raise wider public awareness of the fatal flaws in the science behind CO2-obsessed cultists.
To ensure the book receives optimum public exposure and is accepted as the authoritative disproof of the junk science of man-made global warming, PSI aims to engage with leading marketing specialists, book wholesalers and distributors, book reviewers and media personalities.
We estimate the need to have a fighting fund of $600,000 to be able to implement a sophisticated book marketing scheme which can fund travel arrangements, conferences, media interviews, advertising, paid reviews, etc.

DISPROVING JUNK CLIMATE SCIENCE USING LAB EXPERIMENTS
Some background: In 2011 PSI researchers including Professor Nasif Nahle (Monterrey, Mexico) proved that by application of standard gas equations any “heat trapping” effect by CO2 could last not a moment longer than a miniscule five milliseconds – that’s quicker than the blink of an eye to non-scientists. As such, carbon dioxide could not possibly be our climate’s control knob.
Also, in 2011 our senior scientist, Joseph E Postma (who works for the Indian and Canadian space agencies as a flight telemetry specialist) published his paper ‘A Discussion on The Absence of a Measurable Greenhouse Effect,’ substantiating the findings of Professor Nahle that empirical evidence supports the claim carbon dioxide cannot measurably warm the atmosphere. Other papers have backed these findings.
In 2018 ‘Six new Peer-Reviewed Studies Show Climate Models Are Useless’ vindicating PSI scientist claims that government climate science relies on GIGO (‘garbage in, garbage out’). While 22 independent studies also show the scientific community is headed towards attributing zero climate forcing to carbon dioxide. See: ‘Recent CO2 ‘Climate Sensitivity’ Estimates Headed Towards Zero.’
To enforce this emerging message of increasing verifiable scientific proofs of skeptical claims that CO2 is innocent, PSI has an ambitious plan to perform several controlled laboratory experiments in different locations, in different countries, which will show conclusively that CO2 cannot operate as a driver of earth’s climate.

YOUTUBE CHANNEL & FILM & ANIMATION
Scientific concepts can be very difficult to convey to the general public. Few people have the education to navigate the mine field of competing scientific claims made in the climate debate by alarmists and skeptics. The media playing field is rigged in favour of those supporting the alarmist agenda of raising taxation and limiting personal freedoms ‘for the greater good’ and ‘saving the planet.’
We can only successfully counter that wholesale propaganda by having tailor-made and readily accessible video, film presentations crafted by skilled media professionals working with the best skeptic scientists.
The creation of a small but dedicated visual media department with qualified experts to oversee and assist grassroots film makers and animators to create quality visual content to post on Youtube channels, select science websites and for use in presentations to policymakers and potential donors.

COMPUTER SYSTEMS, WEB SERVICES UPGRADE
PSI currently has 4,000 members and our websites attract between 12,000 to 25,000 visits per day. Our current web hosting, security and record maintenance is inadequate to handle a proposed increase of visitor traffic. Our data shows that site usage has increased by over 154 percent in the last calendar year. Our current restricted service package means we suffer frequent ‘down time’ whenever an article we post ‘goes viral.’ We therefore become the victims of our own success whereby our main website can be offline right at the time it is most needed to be online.
The worldwide popularity of Dr Tim Ball and his recent legal victory is generating more interest in our work. We conservatively project the growth in traffic to remain consistent at around 60 – 70 percent for the coming 12 months. But the more our work gains traction, the more we need to expand our internet capabilities and performance.
The more successful our websites and the larger our online traffic, the greater our need to have advanced firewall protection, a dedicated server, offline systems back up, technical support and reactiveness.
Budget sought: $35,000
OFFICE RENT, UTILITIES, SERVICES
PSI currently rents a small London office with secretarial and mailing facilities at 27 Old Gloucester Street, London WC1N 3AX. International dialling: (44) 20 7419 5027. We currently do not have facilities to convene meetings on site.
To raise our public profile and credibility we envisage an expansion of our offices so we can more amenably entertain international visitors.
Budget sought: $98,000
PSI currently employs only our CEO full-time. To facilitate our ambitious growth plan it is envisaged two more full-time staff be hired, plus six part-time assistants.
