By Daniel W Nebert Historical weather and climate data prove the point.
At least this time the alarmists are giving themselves a little more time before they have to embarrassingly reset the doomsday climate clock.
The inconvenient fact is that sea level has been rising at a tiny 1 to 3 millimeters per year, as it has since before the industrial revolution with no significant acceleration.
It’s the latest in a slew of studies trying to figure out how much warming can be expected from a doubling of carbon dioxide levels. The answer: not much, according to Lewis and Curry.
A major new study says that the cost to meet the UN Paris Agreement's target of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees C is a whopping three times the cost to limit it to 2 degrees. That is a huge cost for a very small difference.
The question is what difference does this tiny difference make as far as future global impacts go?
As a pseudoscientific advocate for climate alarmism the IPCC is unparalleled.
These reports are supposedly summarizing the existing scientific literature, but in reality the merely choose and use scholarly citations to support the one-sided argument for alarmism.
Canadians Dr. Tim Ball and Tom Harris report from Bonn that the IPCC is now resorting to even more spurious "science" than ever in support of its wildly alarmist claims of climate catastrophe around the corner. They cite a vast lack of real-world data to support these claims, noting that there are no weather stations representing about 85% of the Earth's surface area.
The thrust of each video is that the climate models are wrong and we need to understand why. WATCH NOW
CFACT policy advisor Larry Bell refutes the claims of alarmist activists that hurricanes Harvey and Irma were "enhanced" as a result of climate change -- and shows that the same alarmists had made the same statements in prior years regarding prior hurricanes -- and then there was a 12-year lull.
After six years of tedious litigation, a court in Vancouver, British Columbia appears set to hand down a ruling involving one of the most controversial claims ever made in support of human-induced global warming. Michael Mann refused to provide his temperature proxy data despite a court order. What is he afraid we'll discover?
CFACT policy analyst Larry Bell hails the action by EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt to seek peer-reviewed investigations of facts and fictions regarding key areas of agreement and dispute on climate policy. Bell notes that Mother Nature is a far bigger player in climate change than is human activity, and that indeed even the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change admits that the climate system is a coupled non-linear chaotic system.
Eight top scientists responded to complaints by Massachusetts Institute of Technology President Rafael Reif and others condemning President Trump for withdrawing the U.S. from the Paris climate accords, stating strongly that he had done the right thing for America. The authors cite temperature and other climate data that are at odds with the computer modeling upon which the global warming theory is founded -- and show that myriad claims by warmists are either false or misleading. Number one with a bullet is that carbon dioxide is a killer when in fact is is the life-giving catalyst for plant growth.
CFACT policy analyst Larry Bell calls out Ben Santer, Kerry Emanual, and Naomi Oreskes for their shrill opposition to genuine peer review that might well expose fake science. And for good reason. Santer is one of the top perpetrators of false and misleading information through his work with the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
