Climate Myth What the Science Says
"Only argument for AGW is models, (a)nd they have not predicted stasis in last decade. So models falsified"
14 June 2013 (Source)
Models successfully reproduce temperatures since 1900 globally, by land, in the air and the ocean.
"Similarly, we have all heard the dire predictions on sea level rise, but once again the sea level rise has been observed to be decelerating, not accelerating as predicted by the models. "
12 October 2011 (Source)

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.

"...since the very accurate Argo Buoy network was launched in 2003 there has been no heating of the globes oceans."
12 October 2011 (Source)
The most recent ocean measurements show consistent warming.
"Problematically, the predictions made by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change using these much venerated models have not matched what has been observed. In terms of global average temperature, the models predicted an increase in the last decade, even for the case where carbon dioxide concentration is held constant. Observations using the IPCC's own Hadley Climate Research Unit dataset show no increase in global temperatures this century."
12 October 2011 (Source)

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

"The whole premise of mankind and, in particular, carbon dioxide emissions being responsible for climate change is not the result of fundamental physics but of computer model outputs. Computer models must be judged in terms of their predictive capacity, and it is here that these models have proved to be lacking. It has been said of computer models it is garbage in, garbage out, except in the case of climate change computer models, where it is garbage in, gospel out. "
12 October 2011 (Source)
Models successfully reproduce temperatures since 1900 globally, by land, in the air and the ocean.
"In the case of electricity, apart from nuclear we have nowhere to go. We are already paying massive costs associated with a small penetration from renewables."
20 September 2011 (Source)

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.

"Why then is the government introducing job-killing legislation?"
20 September 2011 (Source)

The benefits of a price on carbon outweigh the costs several times over.

"Even if we [Australia] reach the five per cent reduction—and government figures show an increase from 580 million tonnes to 620 million tonnes by 2020, an increase not a decrease—then global average temperatures will only be a few thousandths of a degree cooler than business as usual. If we reach 50 per cent less CO"
20 September 2011 (Source)

If every nation agrees to limit CO2 emissions, we can achieve significant cuts on a global scale.

"'On the decadal rates of sea level change during the 20th century', by Holgate, found no acceleration of sea levels. Similarly, the paper on the dynamic response of reef islands showed that many of the islands in the Pacific have actually been increasing in area. 'Sea-level acceleration based on US tide gauges and extensions of previous global-gauge analyses' shows there has been no acceleration—in fact, a deceleration in sea-level rise."
20 September 2011 (Source)

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.

"Since the launch of the Argo network, what do we have? 'Tracing the upper ocean's missing heat' acknowledges there has been no increase but in fact a decrease in ocean temperature since 2003—they cannot explain it. "
20 September 2011 (Source)
The most recent ocean measurements show consistent warming.
"'On the observational determination of climate sensitivity and its implications' by pre-eminent scientist, Richard Lindzen, found that the feedbacks have been overstated."
20 September 2011 (Source)
Lindzen and Choi’s paper is viewed as unacceptably flawed by other climate scientists.
"All of their [IPCC] ensemble models indicated that there should have been an increase in temperatures this decade. "
20 September 2011 (Source)
Models successfully reproduce temperatures since 1900 globally, by land, in the air and the ocean.
"I do not accept the premise of anthropogenic climate change, I do not accept that we are causing significant global warming and I reject the findings of the IPCC and its local scientific affiliates."
20 September 2011 (Source)
Multiple sets of independent observations find a human fingerprint on climate change.
"have a look at the data for Darwin. If you look at the raw data from the last 110 years, it shows that temperatures have gone down by 0.7 degrees per century. Funnily enough, after 'homogenisation' by the CSIRO and Bureau of Meteorology, the data magically shows an increase of 1.2 degrees per century. You wonder why I call for a royal commission!"
20 September 2010 (Source)
The warming trend is the same in rural and urban areas, measured by thermometers and satellites.
"So what we have is a more and more desperate anthropogenic global warming theory supporters club who, when the data indicates that the planet has not been heating for the last 10 years and the oceans have not heated for at least the last five, tell us that global warming is happening even more quickly than the theory predicts. "
3 June 2008 (Source)

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