Below are many of the climate myths used by David Rose plus how often each myth has been used.

Climate myths by Rose What the Science Says Usage

"Renewable energy is too expensive"

When you account for all of the costs associated with burning coal and other fossil fuels, like air pollution and health effects, in reality they are significantly more expensive than most renewable energy sources.

2
"It hasn't warmed since 1998"

Every part of the Earth's climate system has continued warming since 1998, with 2015 shattering temperature records.

1
"Models are unreliable"

Models successfully reproduce temperatures since 1900 globally, by land, in the air and the ocean.

1
"It's internal variability"

Internal variability can only account for small amounts of warming and cooling over periods of decades, and scientific studies have consistently shown that it cannot account for the global warming over the past century.

1
"Renewable energy investment kills jobs"

Investment in renewable energy creates more jobs than investment in fossil fuel energy.
