Climate myths by McLean What the Science Says Usage

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

"Sea level rise is exaggerated" A variety of different measurements find steadily rising sea levels over the past century. 1
"Extreme weather isn't caused by global warming" Extreme weather events are being made more frequent and worse by global warming. 1
"Sea level rise is decelerating"

Global sea level data shows that sea level rise has been increasing since 1880 while future sea level rise predictions are based on physics, not statistics.

1
"Tuvalu sea level isn't rising" Tuvalu sea level is rising 3 times larger than the global average. 1
"There's no correlation between CO2 and temperature" There is long-term correlation between CO2 and global temperature; other effects are short-term. 1
"Peer review process was corrupted" An Independent Review concluded that CRU's actions were normal and didn't threaten the integrity of peer review. 1
