ICCC-14 Preview, Ep. 6: Patrick Michaels - Climate Models vs. Reality

As The Heartland Institute is getting ready for our big climate conference in Las Vegas October 15-17 (ICCC-14), we wanted to offer you some sneak previews of what the program will look like. And how better to do that than to invite our speakers to give previews of the presentations they are preparing? In our sixth in this series, join us LIVE on YouTube Wednesday at 2:00 p.m. ET (1:00 p.m. CT) as Dr. Patrick Michaels, Senior Fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute and the CO2 Coalition, gives a sneak peek of his Las Vegas presentation. In this preview, Michaels will discuss "Climate Models vs. Reality." ABOUT PATRICK MICHAELS' PRESENTATION Even the legacy mega journals, such as Nature and, more recently, Science, are now carrying articles documenting that the newest generation of climate models, known as CMIP-6, are generally supplied with the wrong input data, with completely unrealistic future emission levels. As a result, they are predicting far too much warming for recent and future decades. Further, even with better input, the models continue to overpredict warming. The same recent Science article dramatically exaggerated observed temperature changes in the past decade. In reality, we inhabit a modestly warming planet, where the causes are a mix of internal and human-related inputs. But the greening of the earth, which is especially concentrated over the world’s tropical rainforests and high-latitude land areas of the Northern Hemisphere, is almost entirely of human origin. There is also little credible evidence for increasingly violent weather, and much more evidence that increasing weather damages are a result of rising property values and population density, especially in highly desired coastal regions.

Chuck Schumer must regret his recent words. He said COVID-19 "was horrible" while calling for future action on climate change. These words stand in stark contrast to the words from Joe Biden and other liberal politicians across the country. Chuck Schumer also stated that climate change will be worse than COVID-19 ever was within a few short years. Hundred of thousands died from COVID-19 in the United States. Are we years away from a climate apocalypse? Chuck Schumer definitely wished he could take these words back.

California told their citizens to stop charging their electric vehicles due to an electricity shortage. This was largely due to the failures of supposedly "green" energy. Add this to the growing list of indictments on electric vehicles and renewable energy. Climate Realism channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCfbmCa21x4NgjyNXkMj-jAw

A new study from Monash University shows that from 2000 to 2019, deaths from cold-related weather events fell 51%. Cold weather kills far more people than hot weather. Despite a small increase in deaths from heat-related weather incidents, overall deaths decreased. The media is trying to spin this study into a scare story.
