    • Date: 27/11/19
    • Ingrid Boas et al., Nature Climate Change

    Misleading claims about mass migration induced by climate change continue to surface in both academia and policy.

International migration and climate policy assumes that anthropogenic climate change […]

  • Global Warming’s Apocalyptic Path

    • Date: 23/11/19
    • Real Jean Isaac, The American Spectator

    Apocalyptic mass movements come in waves, and it’s impossible to predict what will happen after the current wave of increasingly unhinged climate change activism breaks. Global warming has been characterized by its critics (and occasionally by followers like Hawaii Sen. Mazie Hirono) as a religious movement. While this is correct, it is a religious movement of a […]

    • Roger Pielke Jr., Forbes

    The new PNAS paper is fatally flawed. It contains several major errors and should be retracted. Earlier this week a paper published by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) by a team of authors led by Aslak Grinsted, a scientist who studies ice sheets at the University of Copenhagen, claimed that “the […]

  • Ocean Temperature Changes Are Uneven And Uncertain

    • Date: 08/11/19
    • Press Release, Global Warming Policy Foundation

    A new paper from the Global Warming Policy Foundation looks at how scientists monitor changes in ocean temperature and finds a story of huge uncertainties and surprising findings. For example, while warming might be expected to be fairly uniform, measurements suggest that it is regionalised, with parts of the South Pacific, in particular, warming more than elsewhere.  As […]

  • False Alarm: Deforestation’s Contributions To Climate Change ‘Vastly Overrated’

    Carbon emissions from deforestation much smaller than previously thought, economists say Cutting down trees inevitably leads to more carbon in the environment, but deforestation’s contributions to climate change are vastly overestimated, according to a new study. Deforestation for timber and farmland is responsible for about 92 billion tons of carbon emissions into the environment since […]
