Inconvenient Truths About Climate

An excerpt from the The Climate Truth File 2016:

“The scientific reality is that on virtually every claim — from A to Z — the promoters of manmade climate fears are falling short or going in the opposite direction.

 Global temperatures have been virtually flat for about 18 years according to satellite data, and peer-reviewed literature is now scaling back predictions of future warming.

 The U.S. has had no Category 3 or larger hurricane make landfall since 2005 – the longest spell since the Civil War.

 Strong F3 or larger tornadoes have been in decline since the 1970s.

 Despite claims of snow being ‘a thing of the past,’ cold season snowfall has been rising.

 Sea level rise rates have been steady for over a century, with recent deceleration.

 Droughts and floods are neither historically unusual nor caused by mankind, and there is no evidence we are currently having any unusual weather.

 So-called hottest year claims are based on year-to-year temperature data that differs by only a few HUNDREDTHS of a degree to tenths of a degree Fahrenheit – differences that are within the margin of error in the data. In other words, global temperatures have essentially held very steady with no sign of acceleration.

 A 2015 NASA study found Antarctica was NOT losing ice mass and ‘not currently contributing to sea level rise.’

 2016 Arctic sea ice was 22% greater than the recent low point of 2012. The Arctic sea ice is now in a 10-year ‘pause’ with ‘no significant change in the past decade’

 Deaths due to extreme weather have declined dramatically.

 Polar bears are doing fine, with their numbers way up since the 1960s.”
