The Media’s Climate “Crisis” Is a Fantasy (Guest: Gregory Wrightstone)

The IPCC’s Sixth Assessment Report on climate change is based on self-admitted flawed models.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's Sixth Assessment Report is based on self-admitted flawed models, resulting in alarming claims about extreme weather that are not supported by the actual data. The IPCC projects too much warming for the amount of atmospheric carbon dioxide. The IPCC also predicts contradictory increases in extreme weather events such as increases in both droughts and floods, neither of which have occurred during periods in the past when it was a warm or warmer than today. Importantly, the IPCC report ignores natures role in climate change and the fact that history shows warm periods are better for human life than cold periods. The fact is that society is flourishing during the present modest warming.
