CLAIM REVIEWS

Water vapor is a greenhouse gas, but it is not a major driver of global warming

CLAIM
Water vapor is the most abundant greenhouse gas so it is the main cause of recent global warming

SOURCE: Facebook users, Climate Change is Crap

VERDICT

Wall Street Journal article questions decades of scientific evidence demonstrating elevated atmospheric-CO2 causes global warming

CLAIM
We do not know if CO2 is the cause of global warming

SOURCE: Holman W. Jenkins Jr., Wall Street Journal

Published: 21 Nov 2023

VERDICT

Scientists have found that modern climate change is caused entirely by human activity, contrary to recent speculation by Joe Rogan

CLAIM
“The question is, ‘how much of an impact do we have on [climate]?’ That has not totally been quantified”; climate change is happening anyway, “The ice age happened without us…It’s probably this constant cycle”.

SOURCE: Joe Rogan, Joe Rogan Experience

Published: 11 Oct 2022

VERDICT

Scientific evidence indicates that modern warming is driven by CO2, contrary to Richard Lindzen’s claim

CLAIM
“Believing CO2 controls the climate is pretty close to believing in magic.”

VERDICT

Letter stating there is “no climate emergency” repeats inaccurate claims about climate science

CLAIM
“Natural variation explains a substantial part of global warming observed since 1850;” no statistical evidence that global warming is intensifying natural disasters, or making them more frequent.

VERDICT

Climate scientists agree that human-caused greenhouse gas emissions are primarily responsible for climate change, contrary to claims in Clear Energy Alliance video

CLAIM
The scientific consensus on whether global warming is human caused is not 97 percent, it’s less than 1 percent. There is no way to measure the human impact on climate change.

SOURCE: Mark Mathis, Clear Energy Alliance

VERDICT

Human-induced increases in greenhouse gases are the primary driver of global warming, contrary to claims in CFACT article

CLAIM
They tell us that we are the primary forces controlling earth temperatures by the burning of fossil fuels and releasing their carbon dioxide. I hope my readers can recognize the absurdity of their claims. … increasing sunspots are linked to increases in earth temperature

SOURCE: Jay Lehr, CFACT

Published: 15 Apr 2020

VERDICT

Human activities release far more carbon dioxide than volcanoes do

CLAIM
That one little burp by Mt. Etna has already put more than 10,000 times the CO2 into the atmosphere than mankind has in our entire time on the Earth

VERDICT

There is overwhelming evidence that current climate change is significantly caused by human carbon emissions contrary to claim in Townhall

Human-produced carbon might be one of the factors [of climate change], but there’s simply no evidence that it is a significant one.

SOURCE: Kurt Schlichter, Townhall

VERDICT

CO2 caused warming during past climate changes, notably as a feedback amplifying other factors

CLAIM
CO2 does not cause climate change, it RESPONDS to it [...] temperature always changes first, and CO2 follows
