CLAIM REVIEWS

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

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

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

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

VERDICT

Non-peer-reviewed manuscript falsely claims natural cloud changes can explain global warming

CLAIM
During the last hundred years the temperature is increased about 0.1°C because of carbon dioxide. The human contribution was about 0.01°C.

VERDICT

On Fox News, Patrick Michaels falsely claims humans are only responsible for half of global warming

CLAIM
So that means that probably about half, maybe half of that nine-tenths of the degree [of total warming] might be caused by greenhouse gases

VERDICT

There is clear evidence for the existence of climate change contrary to claims by John Coleman

Climate change is not happening, there is no significant man-made global warming now, there hasn't been any in the past, and there's no reason to expect any in the future.

SOURCE: John Coleman, Derek Utley
