Climate Depot Editorial
The proponents of man-made global warming are now claiming that man-made climate change is worse than they predicted. In a October 18, 2011 Daily Climate article, global warming activists claim that the “evidence builds that scientists underplay climate impacts.”
The article by Daily Climate editor Douglas Fischer claims: “But as the impacts of climate change become apparent, many predictions are proving to underplay the actual impacts. Reality, in many instances, is proving to be far worse than most scientists expected…”We’re seeing mounting evidence now that the scientific community, rather than overstating the claim or being alarmist, is the opposite,” said Naomi Oreskes, a science historian with the University of California, San Diego. […] And reporters.., “need to learn that, if they wish to discuss ‘both sides’ of the climate issue, the scientifically legitimate ‘other side’ is that, if anything, global climate disruption is likely to be significantly worse than has been suggested in scientific consensus estimates to date.” [End Daily Climate article excerpt]
Climate Depot’s A-Z Scientific Reality Check: The only thing “worse than we thought” was shoddy journalism like the Daily Climate which parrots warmist activist Naomi Oreskes’ worn chatter. Recent scientific data and developments reveal that Mother Nature is playing a cruel joke on the promoters of man-made climate fears.
The scientific reality is that on virtually every claim — from A-Z — the scientific case for man-made climate fears has collapsed.
The Antarctic sea ice extent has been at or near record extent in the past few summers, the Arctic has rebounded in recent years since the low point in 2007, polar bears are thriving, sea level is not showing acceleration and is actually dropping, Cholera and Malaria are failing to follow global warming predictions, Mount Kilimanjaro melt fears are being made a mockery by gains in snow cover, global temperatures have been holding steady for a decade or more, deaths due to extreme weather are radically declining, global tropical cyclone activity is near historic lows, the frequency of major U.S. hurricanes has declined, the oceans are missing their predicted heat content, big tornados have dramatically declined since the 1970s, droughts are not historically unusual nor caused by mankind, there is no evidence we are currently having unusual weather, scandals continue to rock the climate fear movement, the UN IPCC has been exposed as being a hotbed of environmental activists and scientists continue to dissent at a rapid pace. [Note: Climate Depot will soon be publishing an exhaustive and exclusive A-Z report on the scientific reality of the failure of man-made global warming claims. Stay tuned…]
In addition, The Daily Climate article cited animal species as some sort of “proof” of the impact of man-made global warming. The article cited a “study showing that plants and animals are moving to higher elevations twice as fast as predicted in response to rising temperatures.” Climate Depot covered this flawed and downright silly study when it was released.
See: Species warming study ripped: ‘It rather clear that they didn’t investigate whole globe. It’s very likely that they didn’t investigate the whole N. Hemisphere, either’ — ‘The figure of 200 or even 300 kilometers per 20 years has clearly nothing to do with observed global warming rate…if you’re an animal and you move by 100 or 200 miles, it’s 4 or 8 times more than the right distance justified by ‘global warming’
The Backstory to the ‘Fleeing Species’ Claim: ‘Study Author Thomas’ track record is, shall we say, problematic. It would seem that many of his peers hold his work in less-than-high regard’ –‘Six months from now it may be Science’s turn to publish three critiques of this new paper. But journalists won’t even notice. So we won’t hear a word about it’
The Daily Climate article also cited species extinction as some kind of proof of a climate change induced calamity. The article claimed “the real-world rates [of animal extinctions] are more than double what the best computer modeling showed.”
Climate Depot has extensively covered claims of man-made global warming driven species extinction claims and once again, the results reveal the AGW linked species claims are faltering.
