Scaremongering IPCC Pushes Climate Hysteria with New Doomsday Report

Those discredited jokers, gropers and fake scientists of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) have surpassed themselves in the idiocy stakes in their latest Summary for Policy Makers. It is just a rehashed version of the farrago of adjusted data, dubious science, wailing and gnashing of teeth and eco-fascistic edicts on how we shall all live our lives in the future.

Here are a few of the main points:

Sea levels are rising. (As they have been, by the way, at the same harmless pace, for centuries),

The crisis is so dire that even if all the countries stick to their Paris Accord commitments, it still won’t be enough to stop the planet heating by 2 degrees C or more.

Drastic lifestyle changes must be made, drastic carbon emissions cuts must be implemented to stave off further disaster,(no mention of how many of the thirty – something thousand deligates to the Paris climate conference turned up in private jets, oh no, us ordinary punters must change OUR lifestyles but the elites must live ever more lavishly, in order that they may be at their best when dealing with the onerous tasks involved in saving the planet.)

$2.4 trillion must be spent by 2035 on sustainable energy projects such as wind and solar
, (even though these ‘sustainable’ sources have failed to prove they can supply the baseload required by modern, developed societies.)

Climate-related risks to health, livelihoods, food security, water supply, human security, and economic growth are projected to increase as the planet warms

Vector borne diseases such as malaria and dengue fever will likely increase

One observer – Benny Peiser of the Global Warming Policy Foundation – describes it as the IPCC’s “Hail Mary”: its last, desperate shot at trying to scare a world which just doesn’t care any more. He’s right. None of the predictions made by the warmageddonist lobby over the past twenty years have been correct. Snow is not a folk memory, the arcitic sea ice has not disappeared, the predicted 50 million refugees displaced by rising sea levels must be wearing Harry Potter’s cloak of invisibility.

The reason people no longer believe the “last chance to save the planet” bollocks is first, we’ve heard it many times before, second, it hasn’t been supported by real-world evidence and thirdly because thanks to the internet and free speech (which governments, aided and abetted by Google and Facebook, want to abolish,) we have access to all the scientific research projects conducted by diligent researchers according to the scientific medthod (i.e. no adjusted data,) and these reports make sense.

Take that tired old line on vector borne diseases. Anyone who has followed this saga or researched it thoroughly knows that this claim was debunked years ago by an expert epidemiologist, Paul Reiter.

As far back as 1998, just as the hysteria was starting to rev up, Reiter delivered a lecture on this subject to the Cooler Heads Coalition:

All attempts to link specific recent outbreaks to climate change cannot survive a confrontation with the facts. In all cases, local conditions (such as the banning of DDT, land use changes, or foreign contact) account for expansions of disease vectors or increases in infection rates.

Yet here is the IPCC, trotting out the same old scare stories as if no one’s paying attention.

What is new, or new-ish, is the IPCC’s fairly frank acknowledgement that the Paris Climate Accord was a failure. What would be really meaningful is if the IPCC would admit that its attempts to push the globalist agenda by creating a big scary monster have failed.

Meanwhile an independent (and not nearly so enthusiastically reported by mainstream media) audit of the key temperature dataset used by climate models has exposed more than 70 problems with the data which render it “unfit for global studies.” It’s worth reminding warmageddonists, who tend to have short memories, that all the projections and predictions made by “climate scientists” to date have been based on output from ;mathematical models’ of the climate rather than empirical observation.

The problems identifided in the data include zero degree temperatures in the Caribbean, 82 degree C temperatures in Colombia and ship-based recordings taken 100km inland.

The audit concluded that the people running these mathematical models are deliberately exaggerating temperatures to support a theory of global warming utilizing global averages that point to very different outcomes to what is being forecast after the data has been adjusted.

The audit has discovered (not really, all thinking people have known for years what was going on,) that “that climate models have been tuned to reflect incorrect data, which would render incorrect their projections of future temperatures and estimates of the influence of human activity on temperatures.” Furthermore, the Paris Climate Agreement’s adoption of 1850-1899 averages as “indicative” of pre-industrial temperatures is “fatally flawed.” The entire Paris Climate Agreement has an agenda to eliminate effectively the advancement of society and attempt to reset the clock to the pre-Industrial Revolution. This entire theory that before the Industrial Revolution, our planet’s atmosphere was somehow pristine and uncontaminated by human-made pollutants has been also proven to be completely bogus with archaeological finds showing human activity was affecting the environment 2000 years ago.

An indication that rather than simple scientific concern for the environment, there is a rather unpleasant and authoritarian political agenda at work in the warmageddonist agenda is revealed in the IPCC reports recommendation that we should all eat less meat and propaganda should be employed to nudge everybody towards a vegetarian or vegan diet. Now there are plenty of conservative vegetarians, it is not just a left wing thing, but for the left everything is political thus vegetarianism cannot be a matter of individual choice, it has to be made a political issue.

This new audit also argues that even the most simple basic quality checks have not been done on the HadCRUT4 dataset, which is managed by the UK Met Office Hadley Centre and the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia. The audit exposed that estimates (guesses,) were made to cover uncertainties arising from thermometer accuracy, homogenization, sampling grid boxes with a finite number of measurements available, large-scale biases such as urbanization and estimation of regional averages with non-complete global measurement coverage.

******

The audit has exposed the dishonesty in this entire scheme and it appears to be directed at the goal of reducing the population. Anomalies it has identified include at St Kitts in the Caribbean, the average temperature for December 1981 was zero degrees, normally it’s 26C. For three months in 1978, one place in Colombia reported an 82 degrees Celsius average – hotter than the hottest day on Earth. Then in Romania, one September the average temperature was reported as minus 46°C, which has never happened. The data showed that supposedly ships would report ocean temperatures from places up to 100km inland. The paper also points out that the most serious flaws identified was the shortage of data. For the first two years, from 1850 onwards, the only land-based reporting station in the Southern Hemisphere was in Indonesia. Then there were ship observations at the time but Australian records had not started until 1855 in Melbourne, behind Auckland which started in 1853. This data appears to have been just made up.

According to the HadCRUT4 calculation of coverage, it was almost 1950 before there was data from even half of the Southern Hemisphere was available. Yet they claim global warming has taken hold for 100 years prior. Then the Paris Climate Agreement takes the HadCRUT4 average from 1850 to 1899 as an “indicative” temperature or pre-Industrial Revolution. There is absolutely no possible way the data set being used to support all this Global Warming is even valid for any forecast.

War and Politics Behind Mass Displacement in Africa, Not Climate Change – UCL
A report from a new study conducted by University College London’s may cause a stir in the climate scaremongering industry. The report challenges the academic establishment’s standard narrative of mass displacement in Africa being principally responsible for the creation of refugees in Africa and casts doubt on a number of other assumptions about global problems.

Hurricane Harvey Climate Catastrophe Man Made?As we reported last week the Hurricane Harvey disaster which has hit the U.S. states of Texas and Louisiana has shown characteristics never before observed in any hurricane or tropical storm since records began. Meteorological depressions (because that is what hurricanes, typhoons and other intense storms are,) move and once over land quickly weaken as air pressures become normalised. Harvey has stayed in the same area, dumping massive amounts of rain on the heavily populated coastal strip and causing $$$billionsworth of damage through flooding and high winds.

Ever Changing Ocean

The scientists warn us climate change will cause massive extinctions, species will be destroyed, nations will die, the oceans will swamp huge areas of land as sea levels rise and lots of scaremongering stuff like that. But life in the seas has survived much worse catastrophes, much more violent changes than anything we puny humand can conjure up. It is a measure of the arrogance of humans in general and scientists in particular to imagine we puny humans could destroy the planet.also availabe HERE

Climate Change and the Population Explosion
In all the debates about climate change and the effect of carbon dioxide emissions on the environment there is one issue that has a huge bearing on humanity’s relationship with our planet that neither politicians nor scientists will discuss. Population growth. So a philosopher has to step up to the mark and ask why people are encouraged to have children when we face so many population related problems?

The military-industrial-humanitarian complex: Western hegemony spread by virtue signalling?

 

The terms ‘humanitarian’ and ‘democracy’ were once used to describe honourable behaviour and just causes. Now they have become contenders, along with science, socialism and liberal for the dubious honour of being the most abused words in the English language, routinely deployed to justify politically motivated acts of aggression which lead to death and destruction.
Words such as ‘humanitarian’ and ‘democracy’ have acquired a darker and more cynical meaning following their misappropriation to justify the invasion of sovereign nations, effect regime change and promote the spread of Western military, economic and cultural dominance around the world. The mainstream media and many human rights activists, assist these ventures by broadcasting and publishing propagandised news and by tapping into negative emotions such as fear and outrage to soften public opinion and make interference in the political affairs of sovereign states appear justified.
If you remember 2001 and the lies of western politicians and media about Saddam Hussein’s Weapons of Mass Destruction, supposedly capable of being deployed against western targets within 45 minutes, the strategy was used to swing public opinion behind the US / EU / NATO push for a war that would rid them of a maverick leader.  The public were deceived into accepting the invasion through attention-grabbing headlines crafted to abhor readers with ‘evidence’ of Saddam’s butchery and to generate strong emotional reactions which would cause people to think with their hearts rather than their heads.
One story was written by UK Labour MP Ann Clwyd, and published by the one time newspaper of record The Times  two days before the US-led Coalition of the Willing began pounding Iraq’s cities and infrastructure with carpet bombing attacks. Clwyd claimed that Saddam had demonstrated a ‘human-shredding machine’ into which adversaries were fed and reduced to fish food. It is of course a variation on a scence in the Coen brothers film Fargo in which a wood shredder is used to render a corpse unidentifiable.
The article, under the title “See men shredded, then say you don’t back war” was quoted by other newspapers and by TV and radio news and caused readers to feel revulsion towards Saddam and his regime, and made the anti-war lobby appear sympathetic to a murderous regime dubbed by one tabloid, “The Butchers Of Bagdhad,” and indifferent to the plight of the Iraqi people. The story was challenged by anti – war campaigners and no evidence of such a device has been found. And for the record Saddam was supported by more than half of Iraquis, a popularity he achieved by the simple expedient of using a significant proportion of his country’s oil revenues to provide generous welfare payments.

The Iraqi dictator was certainly no angel, but he did manage to keep down the extremist elements in his country ,and of course, his removal by the the western military powers, USA , UK and France (The FUKUS axis,) facilitated the rise of ISIS some years later. Saddam’s real crimes were well known to US and NATO intelligence services, who kept him informed about the locations of Iranian troops during the Iran-Iraq war in the 1980s, in the knowledge that he would use mustard gas and sarin against them.

The US also provided Saddam with cluster bombs and helped him acquire chemical precursor agents. US-based Human Rights Watch estimated that Saddam killed at least 290,000 of his own people while in power.  However, this figure is dwarfed by the number of Iraqis believed to have died in the aftermath of the 2003 invasion, due to occupation forces, sectarian violence or ISIS – this figure is estimated to be in the hundreds of thousands, if not in excess of a million.

The psychological shock-and-awe strategy was again employed in the lead up to NATO’s bombing of Libya, as the US and UK’s on-off relationship with Gaddafi took a turn for the worse after he planned to start selling oil in dinars (a new gold-backed pan-African currency) instead of US dollars or euros, and encouraged his African neighbors to follow suit.

The release of emails from Hillary Clinton’s private server in late 2015, just as the 2016 election campaign was getting under way revealed that such a move would have strengthened African economies and led to competition between the dinar and the dollar or euro. In fact there is in progress now a move led by Russia and China to dump the US$ as reserve currency and move to a system of settling cross border trades in the vendors currency. And earlier this year, China launched the Petroyuan, a gold-backed contract for trading oil futures, on the Shanghai stock & commodity exchange. So old Mad Dog Muammar was just unfortunate enough to be ahead of the game when he had no powerful allies to back him up.

On this occasion, we were treated to the excuse that bombing Libya and supporting the anti-Gaddafi rebels, including Al-Qaeda-affiliated elements, was necessary as Gaddafi was about to commit a massacre against the people of the rebel-controlled city of Benghazi. Another emotive claim designed to mould public opinion into accepting the war affirmed that Gaddafi was giving his soldiers Viagra so they could commit mass rape. An investigation by Amnesty International found no evidence to support this allegation and revealed that on several occasions anti-Gaddafi forces in Benghazi had made false allegations or manufactured evidence of human rights violations.

Without any sense of irony American, European and British politicians and the media now try to justify censorship of news and opinion, seeking to justify this illiberal and undemocratic activity by claiming it is necessary to silence those who spread ‘fake news’. Do we really believe governments and the media are going to censor themselves? Do we believe Google are suddenly going to cease and desist from suppressing factual information and opinions critical of their cronies in Washington? Do we believe Facebook are going to remove the globalist bias from their algorithms and give equal prominence to news and ideas that do not support Zuckerberg’s world domination agenda? Do we look as though we were born yesterday?

The concern of governments and their corporate friends about fake news is that with the rise of new media real news will leak out into the public domain and expose the fact that governments have been feeding us fake news since the modern era began with the protestant reformation.

Generation being born now is the last to be free – Assange

via RT television:
Before his link to the world was cut by his Ecuadorian hosts, WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange gave an interview on how technological advances are changing humankind. He said global surveillance will soon be totally unavoidable.

The interview was provided to RT by organizers of the World Ethical Data Forum in Barcelona. Assange, who is currently stranded in the Ecuadorean embassy in London with no outside communication except with his legal team, has a pretty grim outlook on where humanity is going. He says it will soon be impossible for any human being to not be included into global databases collected by governments and state-like entities.

This generation being born now… is the last free generation. You are born and either immediately or within say a year you are known globally. Your identity in one form or another –coming as a result of your idiotic parents plastering your name and photos all over Facebook or as a result of insurance applications or passport applications– is known to all major world powers.

“A small child now in some sense has to negotiate its relationship with all the major world powers… It puts us in a very different position. Very few technically capable people are able to live apart, to choose to live apart, to choose to go their own way,” he added. “It smells a bit like totalitarianism – in some way.”

The capacity to collect and process information about people has been growing exponentially and will continue to grow fast, he stated. With advancements in applying Artificial Intelligence (AI) to big data, the next logical step is coming.

Busted: Official Propaganda Photo Of Skripal Suspects Photoshopped.

Call me a conspiracy theorist if you like (possums), but I have never bought into the official narrative surrounding the Skripal poisoning case in Salisbury earlier this year.
Six months down the line, after we had heard many ludicrous accusations from western politicians but not a single shred of credible evidence linking the poisoning to the Russian government had been produced, the case burst back into life as Teresa May, who in April said she had irrefutable evidence The Kremlin had ordered the botched assassination attempt.
When she was challenged it turned out her evidence was that she’d read it on the internet. Now, conveniently timed to whip up a bit of much needed Russophobia as the Russia / Syria / Iran alliance prepare to mop up resistance in Idlib, the last ISIS stronghold in Syria, Theresa May has suddenly produced a couple of suspects

With Trump threatening terrible retribution for another gas attack that has not yet taken place (but the US / NATO / EU sponsored Islamic extremist rebels told him Assad was preparing one and what more reliable evidence can you have than the word of a terrorist,) it looks as if the trigger happy Deep State lunatics are pushing for war again, well why not – it must be all of three months since Putin last made them back down.

The previous alleged gas attacks by Assad have been exposed by independent inspectors from the Orgamisation for the Prevention of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) as false flag incidents, and the latest and reportedly most serious yet was found by British reporter Robert Fisk to have been fake news. So naturally public opinion is not wildly enthusiastic about a shooting war with Russia, which would almost certainly bring China in on their side.

But as before, Prime Minister May’s suspects, produced with the aim of demonizing Russia to justify Britain’s joining a military intervention in Syria in support of a bunch of head amputating, sex slave owning, journalist burning savages is simply ridiculous. The two men in the pictures she produced could have been anybody, the picture of them in the street outside Sergei Skripal’s could have been anywhere and was definitely photoshopped as I will show you in a moment.

And while the interview with the suspects was risible as both men gave the impression they were third rate actors who had been given too little time to learn their lines, we must not forget no real evidence of their involvement has been produced. My overall impression on seeing the interview was that Putin was taking the piss.

skripal-suspects

Look at this picture (Used by The Guardian, Express, BBC and Yahoo News,) of the alleged poisoners, who according to British intelligence services managed to contaminate their hotel room and half of Salisbury with the highly potent nerve agent used in the assassination attempt, but did not suffer any ill effects and failed to kill their targets. Do you see a white halo around their bodies. This is not an indication that they had divine protection, but that their images were either pasted or cloned rather amateurishly into a shot of an unidentifiable street.

How Google Tried And Failed To Fix 2016 US Election For Hillary Clinton

Over the past two years, since Donald Trump unexpectedly defeated Hillary Clinton to become President Of The United States we have suffered an almost daily barrage of fake news from liberal and left leaning news sources about how the Russians, in collaboration with the Trump campaign, hacked servers, used bots to flood Facebook with pro Trump propaganda and swung the election for Trump.

These players have of course produced no evidence to back up their lurid allegations. There is plenty of evidence however, that Silicon Valley teach giants abused their dominance of digital media to disseminate pro – Clinton propaganda, in violation of US electoral law.

Here’s the latest story via Information Clearing House:

Britain Should Be Facing Global Outrage Over Skripal Saga, Not Russia

Some people may believe it is mere coincidence that in the week The UK, France and the USA (the FUKUS axis) discussed plans for appropriate measures, which would involve bombs and possibly a military incursion, in retaliation for a chemical weapon attack in Syria that has not taken place yet, the increasingly ludicrous story of the assassination attempt on former Russian agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia has come to the top of the news again.

Obviously the fires of Russophobia need to be stoked to get voters in any of the nations involved in the frustrated bit to overthrow the Assad government in Syria on board for a military intervention that could easily escalate into armed conflict between the western power and Russia, which will likely be supported by Iran and China.

Last week’s  announcement by the British government that two named Russian suspects were being sought in connection with the alleged poisoning of a former Russian spy turned double agent, who after his release from prison in an exchange deal between the US and Russia may have been involved in private intelligence work for some very dodgy characters is more absurd drama in a long-running tawdry saga.


Skripal assassination suspects (they could be anybody) Picture: 247enquirer.com

As in all previous developments in this case, no verifiable evidence that these two ordinary looking men work for the Russian secret service, or even that they are Russian. News of their involvement has been presented, with more lurid innuendo against the Russian state and the usual refusal by the British authorities to abide by any due process and international norms of diplomacy. It is all scurrilous sound and fury aimed at smearing Russia.

This week, Britain’s Metropolitan Police released video shots of the alleged assassains, purporting to show them, each alone, walking down a corridor at London’s Gatwick airport on March 2.They were not together but according to the timestamp on the CCTV still has arrived  in the exact same spot at the exact same time. When sharp eyed bloggers and alt_media journalists pointed this out, the government quickly claimed there are parallel corridors. That’s possible, but to be at the same point, marching in lockstep, not even a a yard apart should stretch our credulity.

Call me a conspiracy theorist if you like, but consider this thought from the conspiracy theorist in chief:

skripals-pair-image

Other video shots produced as evidence of their involvement show the same men walking the streets of a town that might be Salisbury. There’s no reason to believe it isn’t, but with no distinguishing landmarksthe street could be almost anywhere.


Still from I?TV news via The Daily Mail online

On March 3, the day before former Russian Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia were apparently stricken with a powerful nerve agent. The two would-be assassins then allegedly flew back to Moscow from London late on March 4.

One of the most preposterous claim made by British security services, is that traces of the Novichok nerve agent used to poison the Skripals were found in the London hotel room where the alleged Kremlin agents stayed. The incompetence of these two supposedly highly trained super assassins is beyond belief . If the official narrative is correct, they seem to have spilled this stuff everywhere they went. Yet, we are told, it is one of the most potent nerve agents known and contact with a miniscule amount can be fatal. Leaving aside the potency of Novichok which seems to be in some doubt, it is amazing that of the five people affected by the poison as the Russian assassins splashed it about randomly throughout southern England, the two who have died were not the targets of this clowninsh operation.

More realistically clumsy, however, is the attempt by the British to lay an incriminating trail and now to name and blame two Russians who we are told were back in Russia or at least on their way back when the first victims were affected by the poison.

Former British ambassador Craig Murray and other astute observers have noted that the latest video shots released by Britain’s counter-terrorism police are highly questionable. The images could have been easily fabricated with modern digital methods. They are not evidence of anything. Yet, suspiciously, the British authorities are in unseemly haste to make their sensational charges of Russian state culpability.

The day after the Met police announcement implicating the two Russian culprits, Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May stood up in front of her parliament and claimed that the two individuals were members of Russian military intelligence, the GRU. Rather predicably the Russian government denied ever having heard of them. UK government Home Office security  minister, Ben Wallace, then accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of having personal responsibility for ordering the alleged assassination plot although there is no evidence for that and at a time of heightened tensions such outbursts are never going to be helpful.

Then on Thursday Britain summoned a meeting of the United Nations Security Council to reiterate its claims against Russia without providing any further substantiating details to back up the sensational accusations which are based on the belief that creating a bogeyman will swing public opinion in favour of military action against. The credulous British news media have obedienly pimped up the accusations giving the claims a veneer of credibility, holding the warmongers and military – industrial complex salesmen in government to account over the numerous irregularities in this narrative.

Vasily Nebenzia, Russia’s envoy to the United Nations commented that the whole aim of  Britain’s accusations is to whip up more anti-Russian feeling in the international community. As envoy Nebenzia pointed out, it is entirely unreasonable for the British prime minister to make the categorical claim that the two allegedly Russian men in the video shots released this week are members of the GRU? Typically, she made the claim without providing any substantiating information as she has previously accused Russia of hostile acts without citing any evidence.

The British government is also teetering on political implosion from the Brexit debacle and growing public contempt for Prime minister May’s amateurish incompetence and lack of leadership qualities.

This was the same kind of plucking from thin air that Theresa May performed only days after the Skripals were apparently poisoned in Salisbury on March 4. Again, back then, May stood in front of parliament and dramatically accused Russia of a state-sponsored assassination attempt. The British authorities have cast, and continue to cast, a verdict without any legal case. That verdict relies entirely on Russophobia and prejudice of Russian malfeasance.

No sooner had Britain unleashed its latest allegations, than a joint statement was released by the United States, Canada, Germany and France supporting the British claims. All this comes at a time when it is widely known the Assad government, backed by Russia and Iran, is preparing an all – out assault on Syria’s Idlib province, the last stronghold of the various Islamic extremist groups that with the backing of the USA’s Obama administration, (Trump ordered the US to cease funding and supplying arms to the rebels,) the EU, NATO and Saudi Arabia, have been trying to overthrow Assad for four years.  As I reported in mid August the Russian government predicted a false flag chemical weapon incident was being prepared to justify military intervention to prevent the final defeat of Islamic State.

Britain is now, stupidly, calling for more punitive economic sanctions against Moscow as it did earlier this year when the Skripals apparently fell ill on a park bench in Salisbury, a quiet Cathedral city in southern England. Russian diplomats have  now been expelled from twenty eight nations over earlier and similarly unsubstantiated claims about Russian malfeasance. More sanctions are likely, with the intended effect of framing Russia as a pariah state only resulting in economically harming EU and NATO members that trade with Russia more that Russia itself.

The timing of this latest development in the Skripal saga is probably significant. As reported in my opening paragraphs, the US, Britain and France are threatening to launch military strikes on Syria just as the Syrian army and its Russian ally move to defeat the last-remaining stronghold of weatern-backed terror groups formed to effect regime change in that country.

The defeat of IS would bring to an ignominious end the  criminal war against the Assad government in Damascus, a war which, according to very real evidence available in the public domain, was intended to impose a puppet regime in Damascus and facilitate the building of oil and gas pipelines from Saudi Arabia and the gulf states to the Easter Mediterranean, thus undermining Russia’s oil and gas trade with Europe.

Last month Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel held a productive, cordial summit with President Putin near Berlin, where the two leaders appeared to solidify a rapprochement over a crucial energy project between Russia the European Union. This news was not well received in Washington or Riyadh where the US government fears moves to dump the US dollar as global reserve currency, while the Saudis sense their ability to control the global trade in oil slipping away.

Film Maker Admits No Evidence To Link Starving Polar Bear Viral Video To Climate Change’

As one of those sites run by nasty fluffy-kitten-eating climate change sceptics we have taken our fair share of insults over the years from rabid lefties claiming, “but its science, you can’t question facts like that,” and then calling us a lot of unpleasant names.

Well the whole point of science is it’s there to be questioned. And as dutiful sceptics we have questioned those emotionally manipulative stories about the poor polar bears (which according to unbiased evidence are increasing in numbers,) dying because of human made climate change, the bear clinging to a very small ice floe (which was exposed as a Photoshop mash up,) and the starving polar bear foraging for food in an arid landscape that could have been southern Spain, North Africa or the Middle East.

The starving polar bear video was a heart-rending piece of viral footage: a polar bear, ravaged by the impact of climate change, starving and staggering across an ice-free landscape.

The video, watched 2.5 billion times on the National Geographic website – where the write up explicitly linked the anorexic anima’s plight to climate change was explicitly made – was used as propaganda by the green lobby. But the film-maker who shot it has now acknowledged it didn’t necessarily show a polar bear dying from the effects of climate change at all.

Cristina Mittermeier has come clean and admitted the animal could simply be old, ill or injured and unable to successfully forage for food – and it was incorrect to say the bear was starving because of climate change,’ because there was no evidence to support that.

Photographer Paul Nicklen captured the heartbreaking scene of a starving polar bear scrounging for food on dry land.

National Geographic has since edited the title of the video so there is no link to climate change.

Mittermeier says the problem began when National Geographic captioned the video ‘This is what climate change looks like’.

Mittermeier says, ‘In retrospect, National Geographic went too far with the caption.’

She said, ‘Photographer Paul Nicklen and I are on a mission to capture images that communicate the urgency of climate change. Documenting its effects on wildlife hasn’t been easy.

‘With this image, we thought we had found a way to help people imagine what the future of climate change might look like. We were, perhaps, naive. The picture went viral — and people took it literally.

‘Perhaps we made a mistake in not telling the full story — that we were looking for a picture that foretold the future and that we didn’t know what had happened to this particular polar bear.’

Oh well, it’s no worse that the use of ‘adjusted data’ in ‘mathematical models’ of the climate to produce statistics showing the planet is warming although real world data shows there has been no increase in global mean temperature for twenty years.
