10 Myths About Anthropogenic Global Warming
There are many myths, urban legends and downright lies pushed by Big Green about their Global Warming scam, the most popular being “the rise in global mean temperature is unprecedented“, unprecedented in so much, that there has been no warming for 17 years.
Every natural event that has happened cyclically since time began is taken out of context, isolated and then attributed to man man Global Warming, the natural cycles of receding glaciers and calving ice sheets are more proof to the warming alarmists that the hand of man is at work here.
Warming alarmist computer models shows that increased levels of atmospheric CO2 will cause catastrophic global warming, computer models like opinion polls can always be counted upon to give the required answer, it is all down to how you load the data or questions in your favour to ensure the required answer is obtained, most climate models accept 5 million parameters for example. There is also the very real and always ignored problem that the climate models cannot reproduce any climate events from history, they do not even get close yet somehow we are supposed to trust their predictions for the future.
The Friends of Science have produced a list of the 10 most oft repeated myths about Global Warming:
MYTH 1: Global temperatures are rising at a rapid, unprecedented rate.
FACT: The HadCRUT3 surface temperature index, produced by the Hadley Centre of the UK Met Office and the Climate Research Unit of the University of East Anglia, shows warming to 1878, cooling to 1911, warming to 1941, cooling to 1964, warming to 1998 and cooling through 2011. The warming rate from 1964 to 1998 was the same as the previous warming from 1911 to 1941. Satellites, weather balloons and ground stations all show cooling since 2001. The mild warming of 0.6 to 0.8 C over the 20th century is well within the natural variations recorded in the last millennium. The ground station network suffers from an uneven distribution across the globe; the stations are preferentially located in growing urban and industrial areas (“heat islands”), which show substantially higher readings than adjacent rural areas (“land use effects”). Two science teams have shown that correcting the surface temperature record for the effects of urban development would reduce the reported warming trend over land from 1980 by half.
There has been no catastrophic warming recorded.
All the gloom and doom scenarios from the Greens are nothing more than what might happen based on their computer models, nothing more than conditionals like “could” or “might” being used as absolutes, normally backed up with the argument that even if there were no warming the Green Dream would make for a better more Gaia loving and just world, as Tony Blair said “the world must act on climate change even if the science is wrong“.
This does leave the question hanging in the air, why would you act on something, knowing to be wrong?
MYTH 3: Human produced carbon dioxide has increased over the last 100 years, adding to the Greenhouse effect, thus causing most of the earth’s warming of the last 100 years.
FACT: Carbon dioxide levels have indeed changed for various reasons, human and otherwise, just as they have throughout geologic time. Since the beginning of the industrial revolution, the CO2 content of the atmosphere has increased. The RATE of growth during this period has also increased from about 0.2% per year to the present rate of about 0.4% per year,which growth rate has now been constant for the past 25 years. However, there is no proof that CO2 is the main driver of global warming. As measured in ice cores dated over many thousands of years, CO2 levels move up and down AFTER the temperature has done so, and thus are the RESULT OF, NOT THE CAUSE of warming. Geological field work in recent sediments confirms this causal relationship. There is solid evidence that, as temperatures move up and down naturally and cyclically through solar radiation, orbital and galactic influences, the warming surface layers of the earth’s oceans expel more CO2 as a result.
Levels of atmospheric CO2 rise following temperature increases, not temperatures rise following increases in atmospheric CO2 which is the Green meme, recently an IPCC scientist let slip that the last big rise in atmospheric CO2 followed a very warm year.
MYTH 6: The United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has proven that man–made CO2 causes global warming.
FACT: In a 1996 report by the UN on global warming, two statements were deleted from the final draft approved and accepted by a panel of scientists. Here they are:
1) “None of the studies cited above has shown clear evidence that we can attribute the observed climate changes to increases in greenhouse gases.”
2) “No study to date has positively attributed all or part of the climate change to man–made causes”
To the present day there is still no scientific proof that man-made CO2 causes significant global warming.
