“Climate emergency” claims are simply nonsense

Yes, there certainly are issues associated with changes in climate and extreme weather that require attention. But a “climate emergency” as this writer claims? No. Even the most recent IPCC report makes no such claims.

“Here is the wildly false claim: “At a time when the international scientific community has concluded that we have 11 years to avert the worst of climate change…” This claim occurs repeatedly in emergency declarations.”

“This false claim refers to the IPCC SR15 report issued in October 2018. What the IPCC really said was we have the 12 years until 2030 to prevent the small difference in impact between 1.5 degrees of total warming and 2.0 degrees. With one degree already done this is just the difference between 0.5 degrees of new warming and 1.0 degrees. The question only came up because both targets are mentioned in the Paris Accord. The question thus arises, what difference this difference makes?”

“According to the IPCC this difference in impact is very small. It is certainly not “the worst of climate change” as the Post and other alarmists repeatedly claim.” click here

Another climate paper fatality? This time PNAS….

“Earlier this week a paper published by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) by a team of authors led by Aslak Grinsted, a scientist who studies ice sheets at the University of Copenhagen, claimed that “the frequency of the very most damaging hurricanes has increased at a rate of 330% per century.” …..

…..”In fact, however, the new PNAS paper is fatally flawed. The conclusions of major scientific assessments remain solid. As I’ll show below, G19 contains several major errors and as a result it should be retracted.” click here

California fires not related to “climate change”

“There’s no doubt that the dozen or more wildfires that have broken out in the state, including the Getty and Kincade fires, are serious. Firefighters are doing their best to try and contain these fires before any more serious damage occurs. But, playing the blame game on climate change does nothing for public safety whatsoever.” click here

1921: This is what extreme weather events look like…

“There is no climate emergency”

“In a letter to Secretary General Guterres, 500 scientists are now requesting that the UN end the hysteria and return to rational dialogue.” click here

Does low atmospheric carbon dioxide cause drought and extreme weather?

“From 1900 to 1970, the Northeast US was in drought most of the time, and was plagued with large forest fires. But since 1970, the Northeast has been wet and has had very little drought.” click here

Heatwaves of 1911

“If climate science was an actual science, academics would want to understand the heat of 1911 – rather than try to make it disappear.” click here
