The Earth's 4.5 billion year history has seen significant changes in the climate. At this time, the world is experiencing its warmest temperatures on record. Yet, the current rate of warming cannot be attributed to normal warming and cooling cycles, which typically take hundreds of thousands of years to occur. Here are three common misconceptions regarding false claims about climate change:
- There is no evidence that supports a recent surge in global warming. According to The Daily Caller, a recent peer-reviewed analysis found that since 1997 there has been a flat-line temperature trend while El Ninos and La Ninas are accounted for. El Ninos and La Ninas are described by NOAA, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, as "the fluctuations in temperature between the ocean and atmosphere in the east-central Equatorial Pacific" and "occur on average every two to seven years." The study revealed that the Tropical Hot Spot, which the Environmental Protection Agency claimed as proof that carbon dioxide was allegedly warming the atmosphere, has been disproved by the El Ninos and La Ninas.
- 97 percent of scientists agree that man-made climate change is real. However, it's actually closer to 43%. The Daily Wire outlined the various inaccurate research that led to the 97% myth here. In a recent survey from the PBL Dutch Environmental Assessment Agency, research showed that only 43% of scientists concur that human activity is causing climate change.
- Government organizations fund a great deal of the false information spread by proponents of man-made global warming. Alarmism about climate change is a hugely profitable business. From 1989 to 2009, federal government funding totaling about $32.5 billion was used to fund research on climate change, significantly more than any research that was supported by the oil industry. According to National Review, a clandestine network of charity institutions known as the "Billionaire's Club" distributed billions to support climate alarmism. Environmental organizations like the Natural Resources Defense Council received billions from the Energy Foundation and Tides Foundation, who then sent personnel to the EPA, Environmental Protection Agency, to divert federal money back to the same environmental organizations. This report was later overlooked by major media.
There have been countless erroneous narratives regarding climate change that are too often shared with the public. We must take into account the facts about our world in light of how urgent the climate deception is. Find out more information about the truth by watching the film “Global Warning.”
