Climate Myth What the Science Says
"You answer the question by making projections based on models providing the models are validated and proven to be accurate. And the models have already been proven to be inaccurate and the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) has recognised that and admitted it."

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

"We've had a pause in this so-called warming for now 21 years, depends how you measure it, 21 years."

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

"There is nothing unusual occurring in temperatures. We’re not encountering any unusual warming. It’s all entirely natural.  And we’ve had no unusual warming at all according to NASA science satellites since the last, since 1995, that’s 21 years."

The most recent satellite data show that the earth as a whole is warming.
"The empirical evidence shows that carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere change as a result of temperature changes, not a cause of temperature changes."
4 August 2016 (Source)

CO2 didn't initiate warming from past ice ages but it did amplify the warming.

"There’s not one piece of empirical evidence anywhere, anywhere, showing that humans cause, through CO? production, climate change."
