Einseitige Klima-Hysterie und falsche Apokalypse

Published by Die Welt

Die Reaktionen auf den Bericht des Weltklimarats fielen erwartbar hyperventilierend aus. Meist war die Angst vor der Apokalypse zu spüren. Doch der Bericht ist differenzierter. Wir sollten ihn richtig lesen und auch die Vorteile sehen, die der Klimawandel bringt.

Published by Berlingske

I modsætning til de stakåndede medier er klimarapporten faktisk seriøs og fornuftig, og det er ingen overraskelse. Her er til gengæld nogle af de ting fra rapporten, som ikke når nyhedsmedierne.

Opinie: Klimaatverandering is niet het einde van de wereld, maar een probleem dat we slim aan moeten pakken

Published by de Volkskrant

Het IPCC-klimaatrapport en de reacties daarop laten duidelijk zien hoe eenzijdig de gedachtegang in de klimaatdiscussie is. De waarheid is dat mensen zich aanpassen, en daar is Nederland een geweldig voorbeeld van, betoogt Bjørn Lomborg.

Don’t buy the latest climate-change alarmism

Published by New York Post

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change just released its latest climate report, and reactions from politicians and media pundits could not have been more predictable. Fitting the apocalyptic narrative many have spun lately, the always-breathless Guardian literally summarized this scientific report as finding mankind “guilty as hell” of “climate crimes of humanity.” (Needless to say, the report never says any such things.)

Climate Change Doesn’t Cause All Disasters

Published by Wall Street Journal

Everybody talks about the weather, but nobody does anything about it. That old quip, often attributed to Mark Twain or his friend Charles Dudley Warner, now guides most news coverage of severe weather. The media say that natural disasters are a result of climate change and we need to adopt radical policies to combat them.

Allegra Stratton is Right About Electric Cars

Published by The Telegraph

Saying out loud what many people already think about electric cars, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s climate spokeswoman, Allegra Stratton, has received a lot of green flak. She says she’s not yet willing to trade in her old diesel car for a sparkling new electric, because it is inconvenient for her driving needs. In her honesty, Ms Stratton has highlighted the elitist illusion of much green thinking. The hard truth is that electric cars won't "save the world." Even if all nations achieved all of their ambitious EV targets, emissions will be reduced by about 0.1% by 2030. If this...

Önsketänkande och dubbeltänk om klimatet

Published by Svenska Dagbladet

George Orwell kallade viljan att tro på motstridiga påståenden för ”dubbeltänk”. Men om vi ska lyckas lösa klimatproblemen, behöver vi ärlighet.

The Net-Zero Debate Turns Orwellian

Published by Forbes

Our current climate conversation embodies two blatantly contradictory claims. On one side, experts warn that promised climate policies will be economically crippling. In a new report, the International Energy Agency (IEA) states that achieving net-zero in 2050 will likely be “the greatest challenge humankind has ever faced.” That is a high bar, surpassing World War II, the black plague and Covid. On the other side, hand-waving politicians sell net-zero climate schemes as a near-utopia that every nation will rush to embrace. As John Kerry, US President Biden’s climate envoy, told world leaders...

Hőhullámok miatti halálozás: sokkal többen halnak meg a hideg, mint a meleg miatt

Published by Portfolio

Szalagcímek szerte a világban arról számolnak be, hogy több százan haltak meg a Kanadában és az USA északnyugati felén az utóbbi időben tomboló hőhullámok miatt. Ezek a cikkek egytől egyig a klímaváltozást teszik felelőssé a halálesetekért, és sürgős lépésekre szólítanak fel a klímavédelem terén. Ezek az írások azonban a legtöbb esetben arra adnak példát, hogy a klímaváltozásról szóló egyoldalú, riasztó beszámolók mennyire nem adnak teljes képet a kérdésről.
