I was fascinated by these distant worlds about which not so much was known in the early seventies. Having access later to the great refractor of the Nice observatory (76 cm) gave me a better perspective on these magnificent celestial bodies and as any astronomer knows, clear sky nights are much colder than those that are overcast. So, it has long seemed logical to me to invoke greenhouse gases to explain that the temperature was enhanced by them. Of course, the warmer nights are of little consolation to the astronomer if they are cloudy, but as soon as the sky clears the temperature drops, you'd better have an appropriate equipment as telescopes are located on top of mountains to have dry air and no light pollution. So, I was not particularly skeptic about the global warming narrative, as warming since the end of the Little Ice Age was obvious, but becoming later a geochemist and a computer scientist I knew two things : the Earth-system is huge and extraordinarily complex and software can deliver whatever results one has programmed them for. Then, later being interested ever more into what drives the climate on planets, I became more suspicious about the way some conjectures were awkwardly imposed as supposedly evidences. The more we knew, the more the discrepancies between the packaged discourse and the scientific observations grew.The greenhouse effect on Venus did not match the observations for a number of reasons, Mars was desperately cold despite its 96.5% of CO2 in its atmosphere and the more one was observing how IPCC was being operated, the more suspicious any experienced scientist had to become. When François Hollande (a former French President) stated at the 70th session of the UN General Assembly in New York, on September 28, 2015 that tsunamis and earthquakes will be the result of uncontrolled anthropogenic global warming, that was simply too delirious to hear for a geologist. Learning from a politician that plate tectonics were now going to be driven by the action of a trace gas, because a 100 ppm increase of it had been recorded, was such a flabbergasting statement that I was not suspicious any longer but resentful of the way science was tortured to match a political agenda. I had been accumulating and reading thousands of papers on that subject over the years, but Covid time was the trigger, it was long overdue to put back science in the first place, to remind in Chapter 1 what science teaches us, from Physics to Planetology, Geology etc, to evaluate in Chapter 2 the computer models that are presented as the only evidence of a human fingerprint on the current modern warming and to address in Chapter 3 the net-zero dystopian world that is going to be implemented if the public does not raise itself against the green tyranny. Chapter 4 summarizes and explains why a warmer world is better anyway and addresses the question of whether the current climate optimum has anything special. You won't be disappointed, everything is revisited from scratch.
