Global warming and climate change have become dominant features in the way we run our lives, and in the bizarre actions of governments writes Professor Cliff Ollier at Quadrant Online.
People are still threatening us with the old line that Global Warming will have devastating effects. On May 3rd 2012 the US Defense Secretary said: ‘Climate change has a dramatic effect on national security. Rising sea levels, severe droughts, the melting of the polar caps, the more frequent and devastating natural disasters all raise demand for humanitarian assistance and disaster relief.’ More recently CSIRO repeated its claims of dangerous rise of sea levels.
Is there any truth at all in this?
The Climate Alarm is based on the assertions that
The world is getting warmer and
The global warming is caused by human-produced CO2 (AGW).
All the rest – rising sea level, melting ice sheets, drowning polar bears, etc. - are additional alarms based on the assumption of global warming.
Warming has ceased!
