A Climate Conversation Podcast 

Welcome to our podcast in support of A Climate Conversation, a documentary that seeks to foster an honest dialogue on the subject of climate change—its causes, its impact, and a science-based cost/benefit analysis of its potential solutions.


Gregory Wrightstone is a geologist with 35 years of experience in Earth science and the best-selling author of the Amazon bestseller Inconvenient Facts (2017) and a new book, A Very Convenient Warming. Inconvenient Facts remains a bestseller in some categories still today, a remarkable achievement and testimony to the power of objective truth over demagoguery. The new book offers an optimistic and positive vision for the future based on a mature understanding of Earth’s long history and the critical importance of carbon dioxide for mankind.  


Walter E. Johnson is a respected geophysicist, certified geologist and registered professional engineer who earned his degree from the Colorado School of Mines. Walt has written and published more than 20 papers and publications on his areas of expertise, including high-resolution and shear wave seismology, inversion, and direct detection techniques.  In 2022, he personally funded, wrote and produced A Climate Conversation, a documentary film that seeks to foster a transparent and inclusive approach to the topic of climate change. 


The podcast will cover a number of topics, including:


  • The cost/benefit of policies that seek to achieve “net zero”, including its implications for third world populations and human flourishing

  • The “greatest untold story”—the fact that 80% of the Earth is greening due to marginally higher levels of CO2, and “desertification” is a myth

  • The fallacy that hurricanes, wildfires and sea level rise data point to a catastrophic future

  • The truth about a warmer climate, which has been correlated with periods of great advancement for mankind

  • That highly publicized events, like the recent COP28, have a decades-long history of producing nothing

  • That flawed computer models exaggerate warming by factors of 2 or 3

  • That species extinction is at historically low levels, and

  • That modest warming and more CO2 in the atmosphere make more a thriving ecosystem


The Hidden Agenda of Climate Alarmism

What motivates Dubai, an oil-rich country dependent on fossil fuels, to host COP28? Why have some called COP28 a “trade fair” and not an honest search for the truth about the ever-changing climate and an assessment of how to prioritize international cooperation? 


The BBC has reported that the UAE planned to use its role as host to broker new oil and gas deals with UN member countries. An objective examination of the facts surrounding the UN’s focus on climate change can lead one to cynical conclusions about their agenda. A Climate Change is intended to turn down the heat, and turn up the light. 


The truth is that net zero is not only virtually impossible to achieve (due to the scarcity of rare earths and the staggering costs of new solar and wind infrastructure), but appears to be entirely unnecessary. What is so often left unsaid is the fact that even if the USA were to achieve net zero by 2050, the impact on global temperatures would be negligible. 


Our film and this podcast are intended to educate our citizens so that they are equipped to make informed and rational decisions, not only for themselves, but for their children and grandchildren. We encourage you to share this podcast, and our film, with your loved ones and colleagues. The truth has a marvelous capacity to spread, and we appreciate your help in bringing sanity to this over-hyped topic.
