The declaration titled "There is no climate emergency" adds another layer of complexity to the climate discourse. Comprising 53 pages of signatures from global experts, including Nobel Laureates and researchers from esteemed universities, as well as engineers, lawyers, and other professionals, it was published in mid-August. The document outlines six primary arguments challenging the notion of a climate crisis, including the assertion that carbon dioxide is not a pollutant but essential for plant growth and life on Earth.
