A Little Bit of Climate FactIn the rush to lock in budgets and restrictions on human activities before the fraud is obvious to all, Greenies meet and discuss their cherry picked "facts" about global climate. In an essay by Dutch journalist Karel Beckman called 'Confessions of a Climate Doubter' that has been published in the 'European Energy Review' the following facts are discussed:
The Prime Minister of the Pacific Island of Tuvalu calls global warming a ‘slow and insidious form of terrorism against us’, but you would not know from going to a COP conference that sea levels at Tuvalu have not risen for at least 35 years. You would not know that according to the Swedish sea level specialist Nils-Axel Mörner, there is no long-term trend in global sea level whatsoever, or that according to generally accepted research, there has been no accelerated rise in sea levels as a result of global warming. You would not know that the number of droughts has decreased rather than increased in the world over the past century. You would not know that coastlines are not shrinking; that Antarctic ice is not melting; that some glaciers are melting but others are advancing; that the number and strength of hurricanes has not increased; that polar bears are not being threatened; that sub- Saharan Africa has been subject to droughts for many centuries and it is hard to find any trends in the occurrence of droughts there; that more people die because of cold winters than of hot summers; that climate is not a factor in the spread of malaria; etcetera, etcetera. Indeed, you would not know that on December 11, 2008, the one but last day of the Poznan conference, the US Senate Environment and Public Works Committee put out a report announcing that ‘more than 650 international scientists dissent over man-made global warming claims’, including some highly respected scientists from prestigious institutions. Those are the inconvenient truths that the climate change advocates prefer to ignore.Zero Base thinkers do not ignore inconvenient facts. They consider the evidence as it becomes available, and they change their beliefs when new facts make former "truth" to be incorrect. There are far too few zero base thinkers in the world of climate hysteria.
