Global Warming Lies

Updated on July 24, 2011

Politicians and academics have been drumming the apocalyptic scenarios into our terrified brains for more than a decade now: mankind's selfish burning of fossil fuels is sending the earths temperature rocketing upwards. Here are 5 reasons why climate change might be a lie.....

The 35 scientific errors in Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth

British nobleman Lord Christopher Monckton is a vocal sceptic of climate change, and via the Science and Public Policy Institute, has identified 35 incredible errors in Al gore's film. According to Monckton, "each of the errors misstates the conclusions of the scientific literature, or states that there is a threat where there is none, or exagerates the threat where there may be one. All of the errors point in one direction - towards undue alarmism. The likelihood that all of the errors could have fallen in one direction purely by inadvertance is less that one in 34 billion." Those errors include claims that the Greenland ice sheet is unstabble, that the snows of Kilimanjaro are melting, that the Lake Chad in Africa dried up, that Hurricane Katrina was man made and that the Sun heats the Arctic Ocean.

Glaciers are not melting any faster

Climate change fundamentalists insist that glaciers are melting due to the use of fossil fuels in the 20th Century. In fact, glacial melt began in the 1820s, long before our evil chimneys could have had any influence. What's more , they have melted in a uniform way ever since, with no apparent acceleration. Some scientists now leading the argument against climate change suggest glaciers have, in fact, been expanding and shrinking in cycles for several centuries and a re unaffected by humanity's carbon emissions.

Our emissions are tiny compared to the rest of Nature's

Overall, man-made carbon dioxide emissions throughout our entire history constitute less than 0.00022 per cent of the total that are naturally emitted. If you factor in non-greenhouse influences such as El Nino and large volcanic eruptions, satellite-based measurements show that the increase in temperature since 1979 is barely detectible. Since then, even though carbon dioxide emissions as a whole have increased by 17 per cent, it's yet to make a significant effect on the global climate.

Temperatures dropped after World War 2

Following a huge surge in carbon dioxide emissions during and after World War 2, temperatures fell for 40 years. Over the last 100 years, global temperatures have increased by only between one and two degress. This is entirely consistent with natural climate trends.

It was much warmer before we started burning fossil fuels

In what's known as the "Medieval Warm Period", it was toasty enough in Greenland that grapes were grown. And it was even warmer than that during the early Pilocene period - that's about 5 million years ago.
