This information was sent via e-mail to Greenie Watch by Gregg Thompson, an Australian astrophysicist, stating that everything the Global Warmers have predicted have failed to materialize. Since the number of predictions they have gotten right is Zero, he feels the media should be paying attention to their unending failure to produce results instead of their unending claims of disaster. He lists seven claims that are fundamental to their position, and justification for the world to virtually give up on the concept of industrialized modern societies.
1. Claim - Temperatures should be going up.
Answer - They haven't since 1997 and since 2007 they have gone down. Climate centres and NASA are finally admitting this..
2. Claim - Snow would never be seen again by many children. They would not know what it is.”
Answer - Since 2006/7 winter there have been the heaviest snow falls in the northern hemisphere for 20 -80 years and in some places as far back as records go.
3. Claim – The Arctic would be half the size by now and it will be completely gone within this decade.
Answer - It has gone back to its typical cold cycle size and it will not be gone due to the Sun being so dormant. It has never disappeared even when the Sun is at maximum for long periods because it is only summer there for 6 weeks and the rest of the time it is -25C to -50C.
4. Claim - Glaciers would continue to recede and many would no longer exist.
Answer - Almost all glaciers are surging due to years of very heavy snow falls.
5. Claim - Drought would continue and this would have caused water wars by now.
Answer - Since 2006, we have had huge floods, many the biggest on record across all developed continents . Many places like Lake Eyre have filled four times in 3 years! There has never been any water wars.
6. Claim - Sea level would have risen by 2000 to start flooding low lying areas in cities at sea level. Flooded subways, basements and underground carparks would have make cities unliveable by now.
Answer - Sea level have not risen and there is no sign that it will. No islands at sea level have been evacuated as Al Gore so fraudulently claimed. And Bangladesh is still above sea level, contrary to his predictions.
7. Claim - CO2 causes heating of the climate.
Answer - Changes in Solar Activity accounts for 99.99% of climate changes on Earth. The trivial amount of manmade CO2 at one ten millionth of the atmosphere has zero effect.
Malthusian predictions have failed unendingly. The reality is that the environmental movement almost has a monopoly on being wrong. Why isn’t that the focus of the media?
Whether it’s Global Warming or pesticides the media is the handmaiden of a movement that has a record of irrational misanthropic actions. So how many times do they have to be wrong before the media starts paying attention? Then again, perhaps they just don't care.
