[Due to fair comment that the title is misleading, I would like to point out that “Global Warming” in the title relates to “Man-made Global Warming” as the target of the myth claim. An analogy to “Climate Change” erroneously being used as a term meaning “man-made climate change”. The latter case is a deliberate deception.]
Published by ‘Breitbart‘, this article is an important contribution to the balancing of truth in the “climate change” debate.
“When I reported earlier this year on the 58 scientific papers published in 2017 that say global warming is a myth the greenies’ heads exploded.
Since then, that figure has risen to 400 scientific papers. [my emphasis]
Can you imagine the misery and consternation and horror this is going to cause in the corrupt, rancid, rent-seeking world of the Climate Industrial Complex?
I can. It will look something like this.
Just to be clear, so the greenies can’t bleat about being misrepresented, here is what these various papers say:
Modern temperatures, sea levels, and extreme weather events are neither unusual nor unprecedented. Many regions of the Earth are cooler now than they have been for most of the last 10,000 years.
Natural factors such as the Sun (106 papers), multi-decadal oceanic-atmospheric oscillations such as the NAO, AMO/PDO, ENSO (37 papers), decadal-scale cloud cover variations, and internal variability in general have exerted a significant influence on weather and climate changes during both the past and present. Detecting a clear anthropogenic forcing signal amidst the noise of unforced natural variability may therefore be difficult.
And current emissions-mitigation policies, especially related to the advocacy for renewables, are often costly, ineffective, and perhaps even harmful to the environment. On the other hand, elevated CO2 and a warmer climate provide unheralded benefits to the biosphere (i.e., a greener planet and enhanced crop yields).
In other words, nobody is denying that climate changes, nobody is denying that the planet has warmed by 0.8 degrees C in the last 150 years, while only a handful deny that carbon dioxide (and other greenhouse gases) has the power to influence temperatures.
What they are saying in their different ways is that “global warming” – as in the big scare story that the planet is heating up at a catastrophic unprecedented rate because of man-made CO2 emissions – is bunk; or that the methods being used to combat the problem are bunk.
Here – courtesy of Kenneth Richard, who has waded through them all – are some examples of what they say.”

Our unworthy, unreliable watchdog ‘Snopes’ have seen fit to debunk (prove wrong) Delingpole’s post. If readers think there is substance to the Snopes article, please refer to the following and its comments.
“Peter Jonigkeit : It has been a long time since Snopes was neutral in either politics or climate change. They chose to believe the junk science generated by the IPCC from the beginning. Still good for some things but not the two mentioned. Pity.
Ken McMurtrie : It is a bit sad that Delingpole worded his title so provocatively. The MYTH EXISTS but it relates to catastrophic warming due to man’s contributions of CO2 into the atmosphere. I guess if the alarmists can similarly use “climate change”, a natural phenomena, to represent the same claim, he shouldn’t be criticized too harshly.
