“Even more insidiously, doom-mongering makes us panic and seize upon the wrong responses to [perceived dangerous] global warming. At a cost of between $1 trillion and $2 trillion annually, the Paris climate agreement, recently ratified by China, is likely to be history’s most expensive treaty. It will slow the world’s economic growth to force a shift to inefficient green energy sources.”

Bjorn Lomborg writes:
Once a year or so, journalists from major news outlets travel to the Marshall Islands, a remote chain of volcanic islands and coral atolls in the Pacific Ocean, to report in panicked tones that the island nation is vanishing because of climate change. Their dispatches are often filled with raw emotion and suggest that residents are fleeing atolls swiftly sinking into the sea.
Yet new research shows that this is not the entire—or even an accurate—picture. Acknowledging this doesn’t mean that global warming isn’t real, or that world leaders and scientists shouldn’t tackle the adverse effects of climate change, but hype and exaggeration serve no one.

“To tell preposterous untruths in this ‘good’ cause is not just forgivable but a sign of superior morality. The bigger the whopper the more you must really care.”
This paragraph lasers in on the dangerous licence reserved for climate change alarmists and environmental activist groups to spread exaggerated claims and blatant falsehoods, designed to spread fear and belief in a man-made climate apocalypse.

The good news is that “leading environmentalist writer Rowan Jacobsen” has just told the world we need never again believe a word he says.
The icon of the natural world is bigger than the whole of the UK and is composed of over 2,900 individual reefs and 900 islands…
Leading environmentalist writer Rowan Jacobsen declared the incredible structure dead, and wrote: “The Great Barrier Reef of Australia passed away in 2016 after a long illness.
“It was 25 million years old.”
The incredible thing is that warmists actually write such stuff and possibly even believe it – yet it doesn’t matter. To tell preposterous untruths in this “good” cause is not just forgivable but a sign of superior morality. The bigger the whopper the more you must really care.
Yes, the Great Barrier Marine Park Authority says 22 per cent of coral cover…

But the mainstream media and climate experts like Al Gore have framed the entire “global warming” scare on the “extreme weather” apocalypse!
Is it that they use apocalyptic imagery and doomsday scenarios, rather than “S C I E N C E”, to frighten us into “catastrophic man-made climate change” belief? 🤔
This list is useful for refuting those misguided people that insist that there was a climate component to hurricane Mathew. There’s also my earlier refutation titled: Why trying to link hurricane Matthew to “climate change” is just political hype.
Here is the list of papers:
No Trend Or Reduced Intensity Of Landfalling Hurricanes With Warming
“The impact of climate change is seen in slightly decreased intensities in landfalling cyclones.”
“[T]be global frequency of category 4 and 5 hurricanes has shown a small, insignificant downward trend [1990-2014].”
“The various SST measures only have a weak influence on TMLGP[tropical cyclones making landfall, South China] intensities. Despite the long-term warming trend in SST in the WNP, no long-term trend is observed in either the frequency or intensities of TMLGP[tropical cyclones making landfall, South China].”

This study is flawed from the outset! Unfortunately, the UBC researchers didn’t add the most important line of code into their models: “Snowfalls are now a thing of the past.” (Dr David Viner, senior research scientist at the Climatic Research Unit, University of East Anglia, March 2000).
From the UNIVERSITY OF BRITISH COLUMBIA OKANAGAN CAMPUS and the “department of bad science fair submissions” comes this study, complete with ridiculous photo. There’s only one problem, most housing and office infrastructure isn’t setup to handle snow storage, and snow is most often stored in parking lots. What’s even funnier is that they had to use a model to try this….in Canada, a place where snow piles are abundant, even a nuisance.
You’d think if this was a workable idea, they’d actually try it with an HVAC system instead of modeling it. I’m sure they could find a snowpile somewhere nearby. Here is the press release below.
Snow could reduce need for air conditioning
A recent UBC study shows that snow cleared from winter roads can help reduce summer air-conditioning bills.
The UBC study, a computer modelling exercise…
