Whatever Happened to Global Warming?

Matt Ridley remarks that several world leader will not be attending the UN summit of climate change, likely because they no longer consider it as an urgent threat. Ridley writes, "Global warming has stopped since shortly before this century began." Climate researcher have made many explanations for the 'pause' in warming, all of which imply that man-made climate change is so slow and tentative that it can be easily overwhelmed by natural variation in temperature—a possibility that they had previously all but ruled out. Researches have found that half of the late 20th century warming was due to a natural Atlantic Ocean cycle. The man-made warming of the past 20 years has been so feeble that a shifting current in one ocean was enough to wipe it out altogether.



Global Warming ‘Pause’ is More Than Temporary; Scientific Evidence

Friends of Science president Len Maier wrote in the Montreal Gazette that we dispute the claim by Dr. Shaun Lovejoy of McGill University that the current 16-plus-year slowdown in global warming is merely a pause. "The scientific method requires comparing predictions of your theory to the observational evidence, and the anthropogenic global warming theory as expressed in climate models fails the test." Lovejoy also falsely claimed there is a “consensus among scientists” of his views, but there is a wide range of views among climate scientists on the effect of CO2 emissions on global warming.



Rebuttal to Phil Elder's 'Primer on Global Warming'

This is the FoS rebuttal to Phil Elder's article published on TroyMedia July 28, 2014. Elder wrote many incorrect statements about climate, falsely concluding that human-caused CO2 emissions are dangerous. We rebut his assumptions using empirical evidence.



The Globe and Mail’s Environmental Bias is Showing

The Globe and Mail recently ran an article about Friends of Science’s latest press release featuring an image of our new billboard which stated that “Global warming stopped naturally 16+ years ago.” The Toronto newspaper relied on incorrect assumptions to smear Friends of Science instead of reporting on content. We also challenged a letter from Greenpeace which threatened corporate officers for alleged ‘climate denial’ and announced a report entitled “Power. Full Benefits” that rebuts the Pembina Institute’s push for a renewable energy strategy in Alberta.



Corbella: Pause in Global Warming Upsets Religious Believers

Calgary Herald columnist and editorial page editor Licia Corbella wrote this article about the presentation by Dr. Ross McKitrick at the Friends of Science 11th annual luncheon at the Metropolitan Conference Centre in Calgary, Alberta on May 13, 2014. McKitrick showed "how the gap is growing wider and longer between what global warming models predicted and what has actually happened to the world’s climate." This discrepancy has major policy implications.
