Debunked – a year of climate change scare stories


WE are constantly bombarded with prophecies of doom by the climate disaster brigade, but the Global Warming Policy Foundation thankfully publishes verifiable facts and research, not computer model scaremongering. Here are some of the stories it has debunked in the last year:

Antarctica is not losing ice but gaining it.

The Pacific nation Tuvalu, which climate scientists forecast would disappear beneath the waves, is getting bigger.

The BBC has been forced to retract its false claims that global warming is bringing a greater number of hurricanes and that some would be the most powerful category 5.

The number and intensity of US hurricanes has remained constant since 1900.

Corals can withstand another 100-250 years of climate change.

Coral bleaching is a natural event that has gone on for centuries.

A catastrophic rise in sea levels is unlikely this century.

National Geographic admitted it was wrong to say that a starving polar bear featured was a victim of climate change. 

And finally, it so happens that global temperatures have dropped for the third year in a row.

Those who make a living from climate disaster theories will not be pleased. Good.
