" WRONG - the Earth was warming but then it stopped - over ten years ago now. There has been no significant increase in the rate of melting of the ice caps which began at the end of the last ice age and the temperature rise is well within normal, natural, variability. " ...Or that humankind is the cause... " WRONG - " ...the temperature and sea level rise we have observed is well within the normal natural variability seen since the last global climatic event - the "Little Ice Age"... " " ...That is, 2 trillion tonnes of a heat trapping Greenhouse Gas released into our atmosphere at a rate many times faster than the previous 800 thousand years... " WRONG - Carbon dioxide is not a heat trapping gas - if we have released 2 trillion tonnes of carbon dioxide into the 3 trillion tonnes that were already there, we would have already seen some dramatic effects. We haven't. The CHG effect of carbon dioxde is almost saturated. Adding more and more of it has less and less GHG effect. Global warming theory relies on the trival GHG effect of carbon dioxide being amplified by a positive feedback in the Earth's true GHG - water vapour - a positive feedback effect which has failed to materialise. Despite the very significant input of anthropogenic CO2 into the atmosphere, global temperature remains normal. " ...Each of the last three decades has been warmer on average than any other in modern times... " WRONG - correlation is not causation - we do not know whether or not the earth would have warmed all by itself anyway and, again, there has been no unusual or abnormal warming of the earth despite a very significant increase in anthropogenic CO2 emissions. " ...Sea levels have risen by about 20cm on average over the past century and the rate of increase has been much greater in recent decades.... " WRONG - Global sea level is impossible to measure without the latest satelite technology which only came into existance in "recent decades" and it is nowhere near 20cm. Sorry Bill, but I agree with the Prime Minister - it is "absolute crap"
