piece by the Daily Telegraph‘s U.S. correspondent David Millward is headlined: ‘Donald Trump should take global warming more seriously – it’s his voters in red states who suffer most’.

This clickbait drivel needs debunking and, as usual, Paul Homewood has done a fine job.

The Telegraph’s claims are in bold. Homewood’s comments follow. Useful rebuttals to have at your fingertips next time some climate loon tries it on…

1. Maine’s fishermen hit as lobsters and cod flee north 

Warming sea waters have seen lobsters migrate north. The same has been happening with cod – which are now in scant supply in Cape Cod. Melting ice caps and changing current patterns are threatening to have a devastating impact on the fishing industry.

GHGs cannot have any measurable effect on the temperature of deep oceans, it is simply not physically possible. Oceanographer, Dr Robert E Stevenson, explained this succinctly here.

Warmer seas there are purely the result of oceanic currents, which change all the time.

HH Lamb wrote about many of these changes in “Climate, History and the Modern World”. For instance, cod were plentiful even off west Greenland during the Middle Ages, but were forced to migrate to warmer waters during the Little Ice Age.

More recently, during the 1960s, Greenland cod again migrated to warmer waters.

‘Hothouse Earth’ – the Alarmists’ Latest Excuse for Eco-Fascist Global Governance

The alarmists have come up with an exciting new name for climate change: Hothouse Earth.

As we’ll see, shortly, this has nothing whatsoever to do with new discoveries or indeed plausible scientific evidence of any kind. As usual, it’s just propaganda by the usual suspects on their usual mission to usher in an era of fascistic “global governance” where democratically unaccountable “experts” police every last detail of our lives.

Hothouse earth – aka ‘climate change’; aka ‘global warming’; aka ‘global climate disruption’; aka ‘global weirding’ – was invented by a bunch of activists at a hitherto deeply obscure scientific institution calling itself Stockholm Resilience Centre. Until they got a study published last week nobody – probably not even the people who work there – had heard of the place.

But because Stockholm Resilience Centre said all the right scary things about the imminence of global man-made climate doom, the left-wing media treated it like the voice of God.

According to the BBC‘s breathless account of the Stockholm Resilience Centre’s study:

It may sound like the title of a low budget sci-fi movie, but for planetary scientists, “Hothouse Earth” is a deadly serious concept.

Researchers believe we could soon cross a threshold leading to boiling hot temperatures and towering seas in the centuries to come.

Even if countries succeed in meeting their CO2 targets, we could still lurch on to this “irreversible pathway”.

“Deadly serious concept”? No. You were right first time with “low budget sci-fi movie.”
