Uninvestigated Claims

  • Humans are causing climate change but the benefits of a warmer planet outweigh the dangers.
  • More than 250 scientific papers about global cooling were published from the 1960s to the 1980s.
  • Greenhouse gases cause the planet to get warmer.
  • Carbon dioxide is necessary for life on the planet and therefore is not dangerous to humans.
  • Models of climate change do not represent actual evidence of climate change.
  • Climate change activists had to stop saying “global warming” because there is so much evidence that there is still lots of cold weather.
  • Global warming has seen a “slowdown” or even a “pause” since 1998.
  • The purported 97% scientific consensus on climate change was pulled from thin air.
  • Michael Mann’s “hockey stick” graph includes a change in the way temperatures are measured and so is exaggerated.
  • Climate change regulations and treaties are a UN plan to redistribute global wealth.
  • The narrative about climate change is a scheme by the alternative energy industry to prop up their profits.
  • Novel viruses in humans are caused in part by climate change.
  • Polar bears are doing so well that climate campaigners have removed them as their icon.
  • “Hottest year” claims throughout the 2000s were based on statistically insignificant variances in temperature that are within the margin of error.
  • Scientists on the UN’s International Panel on Climate Change were caught artificially propping up the climate change narrative.
  • Climate change disproportionately affects poor people.
  • Climate change is clearly a hoax because, in the 1980s, the UN warned that by 2000, entire nations would be destroyed by rising sea levels.
  • Landfalls of major hurricanes in the United States have declined over the past 140 years.
