The Washington Post says the world will end in 12 years.
And the New York Times says it is time to panic.
But their claims are nonsense. There is no climate crisis. There is no ocean acidification crisis. There is no extinction crisis.
The greatest expansion of life on Earth occurred 540 million years ago, when CO2 was at its peak. Atmospheric CO2 levels were more than 15 times higher than they are now. Corals and shellfish evolved during that time. If ocean acidification was a real problem, there would have been no sea life, rather than a massive expansion of life in the oceans..
Earth is getting greener as CO2 increases.
The reason we have coal beds, is because there used to be a lot more atmospheric CO2, which made earth very green. This greenery turned into thick peat beds, which turned into coal.
CO2 makes plants grow faster and makes them use less water. It does not make them go extinct. As CO2 emissions have increased, crop yields have increased with them.
As CO2 has risen, agricultural productivity has increased with it.
Hunger has declined sharply.
Poverty has declined sharply.
Illiteracy has declined sharply.
Life expectancy has increased sharply.
And as CO2 has risen, deaths from natural disasters have plummeted.
“Scientists say” that sea level is rising faster than at any time in the last 2,800 years.
This is in direct contradiction to the 1990 IPCC report, which said there was no convincing evidence of an acceleration of sea level rise during the 20th century.
If sea level rise rates were accelerating, tide gauge graphs around the world would be non-linear with an upwards curvature. Water seeks a level surface, so any nonlinear “response” would be seen globally. There is no evidence of an upwards curvature in any long-term tide gauge.
Sea level rose very quickly until about 8,000 years ago, and has been rising much more slowly since then. But climate alarmists want you to believe that the last few millimeters are man-made.
The lack of acceleration in sea level rise also tells us that Arctic melt is not accelerating. The only thing which has changed is the data, which has been massively tampered with by government agencies.
Experts have been forecasting an ice-free Arctic almost every year since, 2007.
But there has been no trend in Arctic Sea ice extent over the period.
Hurricanes are not increasing.
Major hurricanes are not increasing.
Three years ago the Washington Post was terrified by the lack of hurricanes.
Then we got a hurricane, and the Washington Post blamed it on President Trump.
Perhaps the Washington Post can explain which one of these cyclones was caused by President Trump.
NASA’s James Hansen predicted a large increase in heatwaves in the US.
But according to the National Climate Assessment, heatwaves are way down in the US.
Hansen predicted a huge increase in drought.
But US has been getting wetter, and this year has been the wettest on record.
After getting everything exactly backwards, Hansen congratulated himself on getting everything right.
Even if there was a CO2 driven climate crisis, climate treaties don’r make any difference – because developing countries are building hundreds of coal fired power plants.
There is no climate crisis, but there is a crisis of climate superstition, fraud, incompetence, and censorship. And it is being used to terrify children and threaten the future of western civilization.
