Here we go again – Lake Chad is disappearing before our very eyes, and it’s all YOUR FAULT!

It’s a fake news story which comes around every year like clockwork.

A French study in 2016 debunked the myth, finding that while lake levels fluctuated up and down, there was no evidence that it was disappearing:

Note:

  • All claims of drying up are based on 1963 levels, which were a 20thC maximum
  • On many occasions during the 20thC, Lake Chad dried up to similar levels as in the 1980s.
  • The drying up of Lake Chad after 1963 all took place during the droughts of the 1970s and 80s.
  • Since 2001, water levels have risen strongly

 

Another study two years ago came to the same conclusions:

It is worth pointing out that the 1970s drought coincided with a period of global cooling. This is not coincidental: HH Lamb wrote about a “moisture optimum in the Lake Chad Basin between AD700 and 1200”, followed by “greater difficulties during the Little Ice Age”.

 

 There are doubtless real problems for people living in the region, but they have nothing to do with global warming.
