Scientific Urban Legends

Another great read on the ‘Methane causes global warming’ alarmist, fear campaign.

“Anyone who is worried about methane, good news. You can stop worrying.”

Watts Up With That?

Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach

I have a category that I call “scientific urban legends”. These include things like the idea that rising seas will drown atolls, when Darwin showed 150 years ago that rising seas createatolls. Another scientific urban legend is the claim that we’re in the middle of the “Sixth Wave of Extinctions”, when there is no evidence to support that claim.  Despite flying in the face of scientific observations, these urban legends show amazing persistence. From my observations in fighting them, each legend will require the equivalent of an oak stake through its heart at a lonely midnight crossroads in order to eventually kill it.

I got to thinking about methane today. It’s supposed to be the doomsday gas of all the greenhouse gases, many times more powerful than CO2. People discuss things like the “methane time bomb”, which is supposed to be ticking somewhere…

US Hurricanes And Tornadoes At A Record Low

“Climate alarmists don’t talk about these inconvenient facts, because they completely wreck their scam. So instead they make up fraudulent statistics about “thousand year floods” and other complete nonsense.”

Hear, hear.

Real Science

US hurricane strikes peaked in the 1880’s, and have been plummeting ever since. The past ten years has been the quietest on record in the US, with only 8 hurricane strikes. Compare with 1879-1888 when the US was hit by 28 hurricanes.

More Detail On Barack Obama’s Alaskan Climate Fraud

Real Science

Few people can pack as many lies into two paragraphs as Barack Obama.

If we do nothing, Alaskan temperatures are expected to rise between six and twelve degrees by the end of the century, changing all sorts of industries forever. This is all real. This is happening to our fellow Americans right now.”

“Alaska’s governor recently told me that four villages are in imminent danger and need to be relocated. Already rising sea levels are beginning to swallow an island community.

According to the University of Alaska, temperatures in Alaska have fallen 0.1 degrees since 1977. That extrapolates out to a rise of zero degrees by the end of the century, not “six to twelve degrees” as Obama claims.
